    Ive been lucky; I havent experienced the loss of very many loved ones. Detroit Red Wings Pro Shop . As a result, I often feel?ill-equipped to deal with tragedy. I struggle to process death when it comes.I didnt know Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, but when I woke to the news of his death?Sunday?morning, I was filled with incredible sadness. I couldnt understand how so much joy, such a bright light, could be extinguished so suddenly. I cant fathom the pain Fernandezs family, friends, teammates and peers are feeling. I cant speak to the loss of fellow Cubans, including?my colleague Dan Le Batard. I know only that I struggled to find solace in the face of such tragedy.Like any other baseball fan, I knew of the 24-year-old stars tremendous talent and his undeniable charisma. I knew of his incredible journey and how he saved his mothers life during their escape from Cuba. To go through so much to achieve a dream, only to have it cut short, feels beyond comprehension.?How could we have lost someone who embraced life so deeply, felt so lucky to do what he did and celebrated it so openly??It feels wrong to simply accept that his seemingly insuppressible smile is gone.That smile. Every memory of Fernandez begins with that smile. After enduring multiple failed attempts to escape Cuba and a year spent in a Cuban prison, he had a reason to be joyful every day.All he wanted to do then was just have fun, ESPN analyst Eduardo Perez said of Fernandezs life in the United States. Be on that mound and play the game. Not work the game,?play?it. And he played it beautifully.Fernandez was never one to conceal his joy. He stood and watched his first career home run in wonderment, then famously laughed his way through the benches-clearing brawl that resulted. He celebrated his teammates home runs as if they were his own and routinely inspired noted sourpuss Barry Bonds to grab him for a bear hug. Now that hes gone, Fernandez is being remembered not just for his fastball but also for the joy he brought everyone who watched him play.Why do we so often try to stifle that joy? Weve been taught that celebrating is cause for a beaning in baseball. Pros are expected to hide their enthusiasm, downplay their accomplishments and sterilize the very games we turn to for entertainment. We saw how much joy Fernandez brought to baseball fans and fellow ballplayers, and we celebrate it now, in his absence. Why not embrace that joy as its happening? Why not let our athletes?play?the game, instead of work it?Last year former major leaguer John Baker wrote about the important perspective he gained playing in a league in the Dominican Republic in 2011. When players celebrated their achievements, there was no malice from the opposition.They werent flipping the bat to show up the pitcher, Baker wrote. They were flipping the bat to show everyone watching that they appreciated where they were and that they really, truly loved playing baseball.Jose Fernandez showed us over and over again that he really, truly loved playing baseball. If we want to?ensure that?his?story doesnt end with his death,?we need to continue to shine his light. We need to embrace the joy in the game and let players do the same. Said Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle after Fernandezs death, Be where your feet are. Enjoy the moment. Therell be a day when there wont be another day. Detroit Red Wings Shirts . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. Stitched Red Wings Jerseys . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. ;. This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Argentina could not even have dreamed about facing Australia at Twickenham in the Rugby Championship 10 years ago, according to Juan Manuel Leguizamon.The Pumas veteran back-row forward has admitted his nations rugby outlook has changed beyond recognition across the course of his own 11-year Test career.Leguizamon is relishing his status as Argentinas elder statesman this week, at 33 the old man of the Pumas squad chasing a second victory of this years Rugby Championship at Twickenham on Saturday.The former London Irish flanker has admitted he is delighted to be back on familiar territory -- and hopes hosting a Rugby Championship match in the northern hemisphere can become a regular event for Argentina.To be honest I would never have imagined we would be where we are when I started playing for the Pumas, said Leguizamon, who made his Argentina debut in 2005. Its amazing, the job that our union did, bringing the Jaguares team into Super Rugby, putting the Pumas in the Rugby Championship.I would never have imagined it. Were very happy to have these opportunities.Argentina will break new ground in the Rugby Championship by hosting the Wallabies at Twickenham on Saturday. The competitions first match staged in the northern hemisphere represents a bold move by touurnament bosses SANZAR, but one that has generally excited coaches and players. Red Wings Jerseys China. Australia boss Michael Cheika admitted the Wallabies could have taken a dim view if asked to trade a home fixture for the Twickenham trip, but Argentina had few qualms in doing exactly that.We are really happy to be here, we love London and England and its amazing to be playing at Twickenham again, said Leguizamon. We are enjoying it and all very happy to be here. Its a great opportunity to take, and its all about enjoying this week.I would love to have this more regularly, definitely. I love London, having played for London Irish for three years.If we could do this once a year it would be amazing.I think its great for the sport, initiatives like this.
