Steve Remembers: Kobe Bryant, Part 2

In part 1 of Steve Remembers: Kobe Bryant, I mentioned what I was doing right before I found out the news of that tragic helicopter crash, along with how I felt when I first heard that news. And while it’s 11 days since it happened, I still can’t believe it.

Now you might be wondering why I’m blogging about Kobe again? Well before the assault allegations that were brought against him in 2003, I was someone who thought the law was 100% perfect, no matter how badly written and/or bad applied some of it was. But after how political that former Eagle County District Attorney Mark Hurlbert made the case against Bryant seem, it made me start to question the legal system to the point that seemingly every week since July 2003, I’m attacking some kind of technicality in it or some kind of badly written and/or very outdated law. Plus, the lens in which I viewed that situation through has since made me more well-rounded and continues to make me more well-rounded in wanting right to be right. 

Now I don’t like using something negative for personal gain nor am I intending to do that. All I’m saying is that Kobe Bryant, through those news reports back in 2003, was what really got me started to blog about social issues. And with that being said, I guess I’m just one of the many people that learned from Kobe Bryant, whether directly or indirectly. Plus, I guess I’m just one of the many people that learned from him, despite how awkward it is for me to blog about what initially inspired me to become the social issue blogger that I am.

Tune in tomorrow to the conclusion of Steve Remembers: Kobe Bryant.

Steve Remembers: Kobe Bryant, Part 1

January 26, 2020 was my last day of taking Week 83 off from updating this website (Art Infliction) before returning to do Tats What’s Up! entries and some of my last NFL related blog entries for the 2019-20 NFL season. Matter of fact, I was finishing editing an entry (I forget which one) for the latter right before one of my roommates called up to me to see the shocking news that hit the airwaves. It was a helicopter crash and based on the shock, I figured that it had to have involved a celebrity. I then set my laptop aside, as I was finished editing the entry anyways to go look at the TV and as soon as I did, my assumption was confirmed. The crash did involve a celebrity and it was one who remained relevant even in retirement, as the celebrity who was tragically in that helicopter crash was NBA legend Kobe Bryant. He was among nine in that helicopter crash that tragically claimed his life, the life of his 13-year old daughter Gianna and the lives of seven other people. He was 41.

During the time when I first heard the news of the tragic crash, I found out that it was reported by TMZ, a media outlet that I have a hard time trusting, thus causing me to not believe that it was real. But after the constant coverage of the tragedy on the day of (January, 26, 2020), it was tragically confirmed that it did happen. And just like everyone else on that day and beyond, I was in a state of shock. And even though that it’s been 10 days since that tragedy happened, I still can’t believe that it happened.

Tune in tomorrow to part two of my coverage on Kobe Bryant.
