Watch this. The whole thing.
Naked football, raw, mic’d, real, heroic—it’s like watching the Iliad, all our time-honored legends come to life:
“Matthew Stafford ( Mic’d Up )
Matthew Stafford threw for 422 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie in an epic win vs the Cleveland Browns. Returning to the game after suffering an injury to his non-throwing shoulder to throw the game-winning touchdown. The moment he arrived…”
The Sunday New York Times, and Malcolm Gladwell, and many of us have wondered if being a football fan is immoral.
“…Malcolm Gladwell wrote that lesser head injuries (too slight to diagnose in the moment but repeated perhaps dozens of times in a single practice) can be just as harmful. And unlike some of the more spectacularly dangerous plays, like helmet-to-helmet hits, the collisions that create these subconcussive impacts are an essential part of the game. It can’t be played without them.
Same question goes for sponsors and fans or rock climbers, or adventurers generally.
