The shootings in Newtown, CT affected anyone, and everyone that heard about it. Professional athletes were amongst those who were shook, and paid tribute on social media, and before games.

Shock. That is the word that most people would use to describe how they felt when they heard the news about the Sandy Hook shooting.

Sad. That is another word people would use to describe how they felt that day as the news continued to break, and details emerged. The athletes of the professional sports world reacted before games and on social media as the day went on.
