head games

The game of football is not just a contact sport but a “collision sport”. Those who play the game are often regarded as modern day gladiators. Football is a game of strength. Man verses man…until the end. It’s the most popular sport in this country. Fame and glory is often associated with football. But football also has a darker side.

Because the sport is so violent, its participants feel the after effects of playing the game long after they are done playing.

Football is violent…but is it deadly?

The recent movie, Concussion, exposes the downfall from playing the game. In the movie, Will Smith plays Dr Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian forensic pathologist who fought against efforts by the National Football League to suppress his research on the brain damage suffered by professional football players. The movie is deep, entertaining…yet disturbing.

On this podcast, I briefly discuss the movie along with my story of playing football from the age of 8 through college. Can football cause long term cognitive damage? Are today’s current players susceptible to dementia, Alzheimer’s, and the brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

not Top 5

When it comes to making a “Top 5 list” for any category, it can be extremely subjective. Quite often, our personal preferences get in the way of us making a sound case for someone/something being worthy of a “Top 5” status. It can be tricky. But Top 5 lists are fun…and if nothing else…good for conversations and debates

On this podcast, I will discuss hip hop and some of its most beloved and respected MCs. However, instead of naming a Top 5 of the greatest MCs, I will examine the MCs who are quite often placed in many people’s Top 5…but I don’t think their lyrical prowess should be considered for the honor. Listen closely. I may drop some names that may surprise you. Am I right? Or am I wrong. Listen and tell me what you think!
