Detroit Prospect Jack Adams Remembers His Brother

10/01/2018 at 4:20pm EDT

from Jack Adams at DetroitRedWings.com,

I have always been curious about human life. Why things happen, how things work, everything. In this situation, there is no why. There's no explanation.

At 4 a.m. on September 18th, my brother, my role model, my best friend, lost his life. When Coach (Rick) Bennett told me the news, I didn't believe him. I didn't. This isn't right. Since finding out, I feel like I am in a nightmare and I can't wake up.

When I got home that morning from school I immediately drove to Roo's office, where he passed. I needed to go find him. I got to the office, opened his door and called for him, "Roo, where are you, man?" You can't do this to me. We had so much to do, so much to accomplish. My entire life has been following in your footsteps. Youth hockey, high school, USHL, college hockey, you are my everything. All the things we did, all the things we dreamed about, why is this happening? We were going to be each other's best man in our weddings. I have been questioning everything in life the past few days. Everything. I can't sleep, my mind is in a million different universes. I miss you, Roo.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
