I know I’ll get run out of town for saying this, but American style football is a stupidly designed game. You can get a concussion square dancing, but only football is centered around the idea of finding the biggest guys you can, and having them run head on into each other at full speed with their heads down over and over. That’s most of the game. Sure, one or two players are involved in trying to move a ball down the field to score points, but everyone else is just trying to give each other concussions.

I was never so relieved as when my boy couldn’t qualify for varsity because he only weighed 125 lbs. He thought his ticket out of the hood was wrapped up tight in thn NFL. So did all of his friends He played his heart out in JV at MacClymonds as a tight end, and was incredibly good. Played with the BIG boys like greased lightning. they kicked butt on CVHS. Got beat by De La Salle though. He’s never forgiven me for feeling that way, and not supporting that dream. Oh well!!. Somehow I always knew that he wasn’t going to be big untill his 20’s. How does a mother know these things?

Don’t do things that will end up bashing your head against stuff time, after time, after time….
