Came across Irabu while looking up some old stats from the 90's.


Then I came across this article from last year about his suicide in 2011. I must've not paid any attention to it, because I hadn't even realized he had died, and definitely didn't know he took his own life.


Anyway, it's a good, moving read.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Holy crap, I had no idea that he killed himself.

Had no idea he was even dead, either.  Sad.
