My brain forgot that Washington Post is on the civilized side of the Internet and potty mouth isn't allowed.

New comment, my condolences.

I'm sure we all want Fred to know he has our sympathies in a time of such great and unexpected grief. There's no United fan that doesn't like Fred.

My condolences to Fred and to his entire family. Awful news. I lost my own Dad 10 years ago and it still leaves a hole. Thoughts and prayers go to da Silva family.

Deepest condolences to Fred and his family. Can't even begin to imagine what that flight back to Brazil from New Zealand will be like.
