I Don't Get It

Things That Don't Make Sense

Neck Tension October 25, 2016



I love posed player portraits like these. I always wonder if the strong, athletic years turned out to be their glory days and they wound up selling secondhand Pontiacs in Peoria. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

As you can see, there are no facemasks on these helmets.

“If you want to prevent concussions, take the helmet off: Play old-school football with the leather helmets, no facemask,” former Steelers receiver Hines Ward said. “When you put a helmet on you’re going to use it as a weapon, just like you use shoulder pads as a weapon.” (profootballtalk.nbcsports.com)

I don’t know nothin’ ’bout no football helmets. But, golly, don’t they look happy?
