The issue of concussions in football is back in the forefront of people’s minds now that: In an article released on Jan. 27, President Obama told The Republican, I'm a big football fan, but I have to tell you if I had a son, I'd have to think long and hard before I let him play football...I tend to be more worried about college players than NFL players in the sense that the NFL players have a union, they're grown men, they can make some of these decisions on their own, and most of them are well-compensated for the violence they do to their bodies.

Are you disappointed by Tim Thomas' decision to skip the Boston Bruins' team visit to the White House Monday in honor of their Stanley Cup championship this past June?
_Boston Bruins_ goaltender Tim Thomas is used to deflecting shots on the ice from opposing _NHL_ players but this week, the all-star is being peppered by shots from the media after snubbing President Obama's invitation to the _White House _for "political reasons," according to the _Boston Globe_. Thomas was the lone Bruin not to attend the White House visit with teammates, coaches and front office personnel Monday and released a statement later on his Facebook page as to why he was a no-show: "I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

The way I figure it, if I get enough people to contribute to the cause, there’s a glimmer of hope on my financial horizon. I know what you’re thinking: “How degrading.” Normally I’d agree with you, but I’ve noticed that those who aspire to hold, or hold-on-to, political office are doing the very same thing, albeit on a much larger scale and nobody blinks an eye. In the early stages of political campaigns for the 2012 elections, I see the money is already flowing in. Mitt Romney got a gift of a cool million recently and that was just from just one of his fans. He must like him a lot. …
