    NFL players promise brains to concussion research

    [size=13pt]NFL players promise brains to concussion research[/size]

    BOSTON (AP)—Three NFL players announced Monday they will donate their brains and spinal cord tissue to a Boston University medical school program that studies sports brain injuries.

    Even though dozens of former NFL players have agreed to donate their brains after death, Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk(notes), Seattle Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu(notes) and Arizona Cardinals receiver Sean Morey(notes) are the first active players to do so.

    Good for them, very classy thing to do. Matt Birk continues to be one of my favorite football players.

    I wonder if they accept abby normal brains.
    Pacman might be able to make something of himself then.

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."
