Chris Spielman's wife dies after bout with cancer

I'm no big Chris Spielman lover (though of all the ESPN/ABC announcers he's the most entertaining). I'm no Ohio State lover.  But the story on Stefanie Spielman and her 12 year bout with breast cancer is pretty damn touching.

The line that finally choked me up was Chris' response to the question of why he'd also shaved his head when his wife lost her hair to chemo.

"People say, 'It's a great thing that you're doing,' " Chris Spielman said at the time. "I always say it would be a terrible thing if I didn't."

I've respected Spielman for the passionate way he's approached his job the last few years.  I respect him a thousandfold more now.  My condolences to him and his family.
