I’m…. with the President on this one, actually.

(Via Hot Air Headlines) I’m as shocked as you are, honestly.

Football’s first fan isn’t sure he’d let his son play the game, in light of the impact it takes on its players.

“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,” President Barack Obama tells The New Republic.

I have two sons, and in light of recent research I am going to think long and hard before I let them play football. I find the spate of recent wrap-your-kids-in-gauze policies that our culture glories in to be essentially silly, but I am not going to pretend that regularly getting hit on the head cannot have long-term consequences simply because liberals tend to be the ones pushing out contrary-evidence research findings.  Especially since these are my kids that we’re talking about; if I don’t think that something’s safe for them, then it’s not and the subject’s closed.

Then again, I’d rather watch hockey than football anyway.

PS: To clarify, I’m not saying Change the sport.  I’m saying I don’t think that I want my kids playing the sport unless it changes.
