It is a rare event when a professional athlete leaves his playing career to join a war effort, but that is the story for professional athletes Patrick "Pat" Tillman and Robert "Bob" Kalsu, who also happen to be the last two professional athletes to die in war. They also happen to be men with "33" names.
- Patrick = 7+1+2+9+9+3+2 = 33
- Robert = 9+6+2+5+9+2 = 33
- 4 = 4
- 13 = 1+3 = 4
- 2002 = 2+0+0+2 = 4
- 7/21/1970 = 7+2+1+1+9+7+0 = 27
- Tillman = 2+9+3+3+4+1+5 = 27
When the news came out that Pat Tillman died, it was much like a "mini 9/11" in Arizona, where I happened to be living at the time. Pat Tillman played for the local Arizona Cardinals and people were saddened by the news of his death- it was evident.
As for Bob Kalsu, his family kept quiet about the matter and did not want any media attention. My guess is however, it was much the same as Pat Tillman, especially with the numbers aligning as they do. Unfortunately there's very sick people in this world, and Pat Tillman and Bob Kalsu might very well have found that out the hardest way possible. Pat Tillman died in "The War on Terrorism" and Bob Katsu died in "Vietnam"; both unnecessary wars, based on lies. Think of all that have died for those lies, that number far exceeds Pat and Bob.
