"You'd Think Eventually an Entire Team Would Just Be Wiped Out"

News Item: Phillies plane nearly collided with another on Philadelphia airport runway

Link is to Craig Calcaterra, who of course thought of the same "Seinfeld" reference as me. Luckily everyone's okay.

But I can't help but think- an entire professional sports team being killed in a plane crash, during or immediately after a playoff series, would be both the biggest tragedy and the biggest story in the history of sports. I mean, it would be about 50-100 people, all of them generally famous, dying all at once, and would have such an effect on that city and that team and that sport. You thought Cleveland was devastated by LeBron leaving?
