In the elevator yesterday, a headline on the video screen caught my eye. Football players are being encouraged to donate their brains to science when they die. In an effort to study head trauma more seriously, Boston University researchers will get an influx of frozen heads in the coming years. The applications for this go far beyond Ochocinco of course. I support this and I’m glad the NFL is doing it, but the bluntness of the headline really made me chuckle. It just conjures up a visual in my mind that you don’t often get from the regular news. Or the elevator for that matter. I dunno.
“Hey guys, when you’re done with it, can you please donate your brain?”
Maybe while they’re researching concussions they can look into what makes football players scream and spaz all the time?
