    Report: Rangers' Hamilton has relapse with alcohol

    You have to wonder if this has anything to do with the tragedy that occured last summer when the young father died in front of his son when he fell out of the stands trying to catch a ball that Josh had tossed in to the stands.

    I was thinking the same thing. That would be something pretty tough to get past for anyone!

    Not from where I stand. Tragic as that event is, pointing to it is an excuse and nothing more. Alcoholics have served in the military and seen and done ghastly things and not relapsed. Oddly enough, if he is honest, he probably has no idea why he drank again.
