From The Atlantic today:
Football is bad for your health. I'm not talking about those of us who will watch the Superbowl with one hand in a bag of chips and the other clutching a beer. I mean the people we'll be watching, many of whose bodies will sustain the equivalent of a car wreck this coming Sunday -- on top of the many concussions and breaks they've already experienced this season.
Football fans like the tackles and hits. But this violence comes at a steep price. Is it worth it?
Not to me, that's for sure ;).
