normally I root for Auburn (Alabama) but come Monday I'll be shouting Roll Tide.
Just glad your not football crazy. Mix that with watch crazy and, whew....Sorry for creating duplicates, I guess I'm not familiar enough to have known that.
I see in another post where you're not from this side of the ocean so I'll explain something about crazy americans: many are football crazy (I'm not one of them).
Monday the two highest ranked college football teams are having a face off, and coincidentally they are both located fairly close to each other; and I live in-between them.
I'll be rooting for Alabama, my home state. The day after that game I'll go back to rooting for my oldest daughters school (Auburn).
Figures available show that about 1,200 rugby players suffer head trauma while playing the sport each year from tough tackles and studies have shown them to be eight times more likely to develop MND.I was wondering if rugby players are known to have CTE, the brain disease from beating their heads up, like we’re seeing more and more in the NFL.
I actually have firsthand experience. My dad played pro football and I have watched a series of issues with him since I was a child that have coalesced at 80 years old as dementia. It is very sad to watch my dad, who was a brilliant man, reduced to what he is now. It terrifies me to think about kids playing and nobody having any idea whether they’ll be a vegetable some day. No way in hell would my boys, if I had any, play football. Plenty of other games to play.
