The Price of Championships
To once again direct attention away from horses, I'd like to draw the dudes' attention to an eye-opening story in the NY Times today about Ted Johnson, former Patriots captain and middle linebacker, who is now suffering from the early symptoms of Alzheimer's, at the age of 34. He directs the blame partly to the Modified Sweatshirt, who went against Johnson's doctor's orders and made him practice in full-contract drills despite the fact that Johnson was still suffering from a concussion. This is, of course, yet another reason to root against the Patriots and the Modified Sweatshirt.
