  1. Amazing how an experience in the super bowl can I would even say playoffs in general.
  2. I'll try to make my long story as short as possible.... I had never thought too much about concussion until last year. In May I accepted a job at our corporate office which meant a move out of state. I was in the middle of remodeling the exterior of our house at the time so working on it became a second full time job. So early in the summer I was taking a 2 x 10 used as a type of a freeze board off of the wall. Whoever put it up used an insanely large number of nails to do so and after working on it for a while (on a ladder of course) the pry bar broke free and hit me in the head. Fortunately I was wearing safety glasses because they were scratched right in front of my eye but my head to most of the blow. That was concussion #1. Felt mild symptoms which went away after a few days. Later in the summer, when I was finishing things up, I was caulking in some areas at one of the higher parts of the house. I had been going down the wall sliding the extension ladder as I went. One of the times I left the caulk gun hanging from a top rung and went to answer a question for my brother-in-law. When I came back I forgot the caulk gun was up there and started to lower the ladder to follow the roof line. Needless to say, the caulk gun fell and hit me right on top of the head. It didn't take long for me to realize I probably had at least a mild concussion. I stopped for a few minutes and went back to work. After a bit I realized I needed to stop. But to me taking it easy meant not pushing to hard and the next day I was back at it again. My headaches were constant. Light and noise were almost paralyzing. I eventually went to the doctor and got a better understanding of just how idle I needed to be to improve at that point. For months I experienced regular headaches, sensitivity to light and sound, and was easily aggravated. Even something as simple as driving would make me almost miserable. It's been 7 or 8 months, and just yesterday the kids were playing loudly in the kitchen and I get that feeling of being overwhelmed, head started hurting as it had before, and I lost it. Certainly mine was not a worst case scenario but my eyes have been opened to the seriousness of concussions.
  3. Since the reference is specific to last season, how did their seasons go again?
  4. At least it's better than one of our players getting arrested? Have seen 3 so far over the weekend from other teams.
  5. That dude from the Pats is locked in.
  6. Depends on which one of his cars he's driving.
  7. Haha indeed we did.
  8. All this really does is make me want to go to KG to get some BBQ!
  9. You're talking to the group that used to discuss Alge's backside....
  10. Ray Edwards is 12-1-1 in boxing now...at least he's decent at something.
  11. wow, Chris Houston I completely forgot about him...."TURN YOUR HEAD!!!"
