Gladiators Die Young
Yet another ex-NFL player dies *young*...
Every time I hear news like this I am reminded of what my therapist (physical!) in Brooklyn told me some 6 years ago.
He said that these pro athletes, most especially American football players, that their *insides* are a mess. He said they down so many anti-inflammatories throughout their career - to speed back from injury - that it all but guarantees an early death.
What a shame....because most of them leave large broods behind!
May the echoes of the Coliseum warm their buried bones...
