Done with football

As I grew up in Greensburg, my favorite uncle, a former football lineman who lived next door to my home, kept his TV set on anytime a football game was in progress.

I loved watching too, but fortunately never played, as the PBS program “Frontline” recently unveiled its “League of Denial,” a documentary that dissected the NFL's concussion crisis.

It featured our beloved Steeler Mike Webster as a poster-boy example.

Frankly, I am so upset that I will never watch another football game, just as I swore off smoking “cold turkey” 30 years ago after learning how that industry kept us all in denial for years about cancer.
