Barber coaches Flyers hours after wife dies.

Bill Barber coacher the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1 win Saturday only hours after his wife Jill lost her battle with lung cancer.

Forgive me if this question is innapropriate, but I feel it should be asked… Isn’t that just wrong? His wife just died and he’s coaching a hockey game. I understand people grieve differently, but in grand scheme of things is hockey that important compared to loosing your wife? Do you think it was innapropriate of Barber to coach right after his wife had died?
