I fell off a swing once a few years ago and got a concussion. Concussions SUCK. You walk away thinking you're okay, but a few minutes later you get hit hard with a spell of dizziness. Then your neck gets sore. Mine was sore for 2-3 days, and it was only a mild concussion.

Anyone with the last name "Lindros"
2001-11-03 07:15:48 PM  
oh yea and "Aikman"

Eric Lindros and Meryl (sp) Hodge come to mind.

Aikman was predisposed for concussions because his defense sucked ass

Troy Aikman could not be awakened for comment.

Eric Lindross' mommy and daddy could not be reached for comment.

as someone who has suffered 18 concussions, I can tell you, it hasn't affected me. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I wonder if they can also find that certain people have a genetic disposition for glass knees, like Jamal Anderson.

They should research Larry Bird. Obviously he carries a dominant allele which phenotypically mirrors the gene common in Black athletes. The pathways of evolution have concentrated the basketball skill of the entire white race into Mr. Bird. Cloning should be considered.

I'm not sure that this explains why Kordell Stewart plays so poorly, though.

Eric has a younger brother who played for the Islanders for a few seasons, but retired due to excessive concussions.

Watch Aikman try to be an announcer, he still has a cuncussion. Then again he lived in Texas when he played, could be part of the reason he looks slack-jaw.

it also doesn't explain why Kordell Stewart likes men.
