Miguel Tejada goes to Haiti

Jan 18, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

Sometimes it seems like 90% of what we write about players off-the-field is negative. Thank God for that other 10%:

Free-agent shortstop Miguel Tejada has traveled to Haiti
to help the victims of last week’s devastating earthquake. Tejada, a
six-time All-Star and former Oriole, arranged for a van full of food,
water and medicine to be taken to Port-au-Prince on Sunday, and the Dominican Republic native took a helicopter to the Haitian capital. An estimated 100,000
or more people have died in Tuesday’s magnitude-7.0 quake.

Way to go, Miguel and everyone else who is wading into the nightmare that is post-quake Haiti to lend aide and assistance.

    I was sitting at the local sushi bar last night watching the wrapup of the Jets/Chargers game, after dropping off a huge plastic bag full of clothing none of us really wear anymore at the local Salvation Army collection point and feeling like I had at least done something besides sit in my den with my thumbs up my ass watching this nightmare deepen. But the postgame was followed by a 60 Minutes show devoted entirely to the Haiti catastrophe. Twenty seconds of graphic footage of an American surgeon amputating the leg of a victim who had been anesthetized with booze using a hacksaw sterilized with vodka pretty much killed dinner from that point on. The next scene of a frontloader filling a dump truck with bodies finished off the rest of the night. First time I’ve cried about anything in a long, long time. Way to go, Miguel the T.
