Shaken Up, Got his Bell Rung,Stinger are terms that are no longer used in football. The new description is “showing signs of concussion” or torn ACL. Medicine has taken over for the sight of seeing someone taken off the field on a stretcher and years later dying of dementia or suicide.
You would think I don’t like or approve of football but in fact I get depressed when the season is over. Of course this year I get depressed watching the Jets and Giants. I watched a lot of soccer during the World Cup and liked it a lot but it will never catch on big time in the US, reason…… can you guess?
Advertising! Soccer doesn’t stop then they take an injured player off the field and doesn’t stop for time outs so there isn’t way to cram in all the ads.
