  1. "Amid Concerns over Concussions, High Schools Struggle To Fill Football Rosters" by Zach Schonbrun on nytimes.com It makes for an interesting psychological and sociological train of thought - my going gaga over Clemson in recent years, and the thought that this is all going to be forgotten a century from now.
  2. Man, they're going to have to change the rules of football to include "no hitting above the chest" or something. If that sounds like nanny-monitoring, read on: "All But One of the 111 Former Pro Football Players Had Brain Injury CTE in Study" by Nicole Van Groningen, MD on abcnews.com I wonder if the one who didn't was a field-goal kicker. As ironic as this sounds right now, I'm grateful to my parents for discouraging me from trying out for football in tenth grade. (I probably would have been the starting nosetackle or center on JV, which means I would have gotten my bell rung on a regular basis.) When I was 8, we were on a cross-country trip. At a hotel swimming pool, I was having great fun going down the curving sliding board into the water, until the one time when the slide curved, but I didn't. I *cracked* my head on the side of the pool, before dropping into the water and being fished out by about five people, barely conscious. I remember two other head injuries that were this dramatic during my lifetime (both bicycle accidents - the first on the chin, the second on the eyebrow). Interestingly enough, I had several Grand Mal seizures within a year-or-so of that swimming pool accident, and was on anti-seizure medication for about five years. They stopped as soon as I started taking medication, and my EEGs all looked normal five years later, but to this day, I wonder if this so-called "childhood form of epilepsy" was a direct result of that conk on the head - the lump was about the size of a plum - and will come back to haunt me later in life.
