Spanning the Twitterverse: RIP Dan Wheldon

Spanning the Twitterverse to bring you the constant variety of tweets
The thrill of the retweet and the agony of the unfollow
The human drama of the twitter timeline
This is CadChica’s Wide World of Tworts

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are few sports that approach the level of danger like auto racing. Speeds in excess of 200 mph, the line between life and death can be crossed in a moment. Everything must be perfect. On a sunny day in Las Vegas today, things were not perfect.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In a horrific crash involving 15 cars, Indy Car driver Dan Wheldon was killed.

As the news broke, many in the Twitterverse, including the racing community itself, tweeted with their thoughts, condolences and prayers. CadChica Sports extends heartfelt prayers to the family and friends as well. May God surround them in His arms as only He can.

While it’s not “the” favorite, one of a driver’s favorite words is “Green”. It means it’s racing time. The last tweet from Dan Wheldon’s account:
