Former Blue Devil Michael Thompson, who left Duke for Northwestern, is
no longer on the team. Apparently an irregular heartbeat is the
cause. We know he can't play anymore, but
taking his name off the roster so quickly seems a bit cold, no?
We're sorry to hear it. We got to know Michaels' brother a bit by e-mail, and
he was a very nice guy and it was obvious to us that the Thompson's are a good
family. Here's hoping Michael finds something wonderful to do with the
rest of his life.
