ESPYs' tribute to Tillman will be time to tune out

July 13, 2004

BY CAROL SLEZAK SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST

Afew things I need to get off my mind: Tom Cruise will present a tribute to Pat Tillman during the ESPY Awards. You remember Tillman, who quit the NFL to join the Army Rangers and was killed in Afghanistan earlier this year. You remember Cruise, who in lieu of a box-office hit will happily reach millions of homes via ESPN.


Words I expect Cruise to use during the Tillman tribute: hero, courage, warrior.

Sentiments I don't expect Cruise to express during the Tillman tribute: unjust war, his poor widow, what was he thinking?

Remind me not to watch.
