    For those of you who follow football (soccer), Robert Enke (1977-2009) took his life last night. He was the goalie for Hannover and also was pushing for a first team place in the German national team. His wife said he had been battling depression for the past 5 years.

    His other daughter died years ago from (I believe) cardiac problems she had since birth and had been battling with depression ever since.

    He was the goalkeeper for Benfica, my favorite team's rivals, but still all is forgotten when something like this happens. It's a tragedy.
