i know this isnt dolphins news, so sorry about posting it here, but....

according to this radio station and PFT, hill was riding a jet ski with a woman and fell off. the woman was rescued and hill has not been found.
this doesnt look good. my thought and prayers go out to hills family as well as the pats and their fans. i hope he turns up.

Doesn't look promising. If he went in last night, wasn't wearing a life jacket and it's Lake Pontchartrain.............. I fear it's the worst.

If you're not careful on those jetskis you can either slam your face into it or fall off and have the jetski slam into your arm or leg or something. You can't swim too well if that happens. It looks like he wasn't wearing a life preserver. He should have at least worn a light one. Like my grandfather always told me .... you should respect mother nature all the time. Never know what can happen out there on the water ... he could have hit a sandbar or a floating log, etc. I hope he's just lost in the woods or something after he swam to shore.

If this is all you can add to such a horrible story, keep it to yourself....A man is probably dead, while celebrating Memorial day weekend, I would think a little bit of class and respect isn't too much to ask....

Body has just been found. Prayers and sympathies to Hill's family. What they're going through now is awful.

Memo to the rest of us: Whenever you're out in open water, always wear a life jacket and a homing device.

Usually I relish anything bad happening to the Patriots..but this is MUCH bigger than that. God bless the survivors of this young man...God bless Marquise Hill

Yes, very sad indeed. At least they have some closure. I feared that his body would not be found. The Lake does connect to the Gulf of Mexico and it has some strong currents. My condolences....

Well said my friend. I was very sad when I heard about it. No one deserves to die especially over some seemingly meaningless football game when it comes to real life. I am still sad by the way and I am sure these feelings will not leave me anytime soon.

In today's Boston Herald, it said that Hill saved the woman's life he was water skiing with, then drown trying to save himself afterwards. Just terrible news. This guy spent more time in his native New Orleans helping Katrina victims than anyone. Humanity lost a good man this weekend. RIP Marquise.

About $16,000 worth of belongings was reported stolen from the home of the late Marquise Hill's mother while she was at the funeral for her son, a New England Patriots lineman who drowned last week, police said Wednesday.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/nfl/06/05/bc.fbn.hill.funeral.ap/index.html?cnn=yes

We live in a messed up world. :nono:
