CNN recently featured a story conveying the astonishingly astonishing news that dead athletes’ brains show damage. Well shit, you don’t need to conduct an extensive study to see that. Just look at ‘em!
Plus, if their purpose in life is to bash into each other and slam each other around and pound each other into a pulp (homoerotic overtones, anyone?), of course their gray matter is going to suffer. Self-inflicted brain damage for fame and high profits… Isn’t that the new American dream?
