An NFL Owner Wants to Know What YOU Think!
September 23, 2013
I had an enjoyable weekend, and I hope you all did as well. Friday night I was on the sidelines covering an American football game which extended into the late hours because of an extended lightning delay, but after that I had my first relatively free weekend in a while.
I don’t think I’ve ever shared my bona fides with the readership, but besides being a licensed physician I am, ahem, an owner of a professional sport team*: the Green Bay Packers, It was with pride that I attended their game on Sunday…..but it was with sadness that I drove away from the stadium, ‘my’ team having snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
Humor aside, it was with real sadness that I wrapped up my weekend, as I caught up with the Sunday newspaper late last night on my return from the game. I came across this headline: ‘Auto Accident Claims Life of Football Student-Athlete, Three Others Injured.’
I haven’t posted a poll in the blog or on the CJSM main website in a while, and so I thought it was time to do so using this blog post and the study, ‘Motor Vehicle Accidents, the Leading Cause of Death in Collegiate Athletes.’
*one of 364, 122 shareholders of the Packers as of this writing! Roman Abramovich I am not!
