Eddie Griffin #41 of Former Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin was killed early Friday morning when the vehicle he was driving crashed into the side of a moving train in Houston, the Harris County Medical Examiner's office said today.

Griffin, 25, was driving a Nissan sports-utility vehicle and traveling west when he disregarded a railroad-warning signal, according to the Houston police incident report. Griffin drove through the railroad arm and then struck the side of a Union Pacific train as it traveled south on the tracks at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The vehicle caught fire as the train stopped.

Griffin, who was driving alone but was not named on the original incident report because authorities needed time to identify the body, died at the scene

It does sound like suicide. He had problems with booze and other things. 1:30 a.m., could have been coming home from the bar and had a couple to many? ESPN reported that the body was so badly burned that they needed dental records to idenify the body. R.I.P. Eddy!!

I know this guy had problems but it is still sad to see something like this happen to someone so young, At least he is free now.

Sad news. He was a stud at Seton Hall. He probably left too early. He did have some games with the T wolves where he showed his potential...heck of a shotblocker for his size, incredible timing, excellent work on the boards....The NBA takes a toll on bodies and just as importantly minds. A year ago at this time Eddie was the butt of many jokes with his other driving accident in Minneapolis

Just really sad news losing someone so young frown.gif

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
