Words cannot possibly describe the emotions being felt by the Miami Marlins and the family of fallen Marlins Pitcher Jose Fernandez. 

After Fernandez's horrific early Sunday morning death in a boat crash the team was just not able to play a baseball game Sunday afternoon.

With the benefit of at least a little time behind them from the incident the Marlins are playing Monday night all wearing Fernandez's #16 jersey, a jersey the team will retire. 

And with a packed stadium, the Marlins squared off with the New York Mets. After the Mets went down in the top of the 1st inning, Miami leadoff hitter Dee Gordon stepped to the plate. 

This is what happened after the first pitch....

Sniff....nothing else needs to be said....

What on god's green earth is wrong with people making death threats to athletes who are trying to make a statement about life as they are experiencing it??

University of Nebraska linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey stepped up to a microphone Monday afternoon at the Cornhuskers weekly media day and talked to the assembled masses about the horrible backlash received via social media after he and a handful of other teammates decided to kneel for Saturday's national anthem.

Rose-Ivey talked about the racial insults and death threats he has received that include people saying he and the other players should be "Lynched" if they don't stand for the Star-Spangled banner. The players all had decided long before this they would kneel in unity with other African-American athletes with the full support of their coaches and teammates. The players kneeled in solidarity  with those who have been kneeling to trying their best to bring attention to the injustice and racial profiling in America today.

And while we will try and refrain from judging the Nebraska faithful as a whole, this is just...well embarrassing to even have to discuss. We are all certainly allowed to voice our opinions in whatever way we see fit but at the same time, where does the respect for others come into play. Far too many think that black athletes kneeling is a sign of disrespect for the country in which they live. What the ignorant masses are unable to comprehend is that kneeling is the furthest thing fro disrespect one could possibly offer...

Take a listen to Rose-Ivey talking about his love of country but his strong need to have the ability to stand up or kneel for what is by many definitions a social injustice...

Day #1 of the Ed Orgeron era at LSU began with an arrest and an indefinite  suspension.

Starting Defensive Tackle Davon Godchaux was indefinitely suspended on Monday after being arrested very early Monday morning (3:30am) during a domestic dispute with his girlfriend who apparently is the mother of his 10-month old daughter.

According to a police report obtained by the WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge, police were called to a neighbors apartment after the woman said she and Godchaux got into an argument and he kept her from leaving her apartment by forcibly pulling on her hair around 3:30 in the morning.

The woman claimed Godchaux at one point pulled her by her shoulder and threw her into a TV which deputies did find with some damage and Sheriff's deputies also saw what appeared to be red marks on her throat. Godchaux, according to the police report may have been struck as well.

Godchaux was arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail where he later met a $3000 bond. He's also facing charges of misdemeanor domestic abuse and child endangerment. 

LSU did not waste any time by indefinitely suspending the Junior Defensive Tackle by the time Orgeron had his first official press conference as head coach Monday afternoon.
