Glad to see limits (hopefully) being place on high school football. The research shows time andRead More time again the damage being done to the human brain after consistent hits to the head. Minimizing the risk seems like the natural and best thing to do.

I totally agree with limiting the chance of brain trauma. One thing we need to remember is thatRead More junior high and high school students' brains are still developing.

It is a bit of a quantum leap to equate a rich celebrity cheating on their wife with some other goodRead More looking female who is either a willing sex partner, or a gold digger looking for a pay day, with a rapist. Rape is usually about revenge, power, anger, payback, etc. Tiger Woods and the others had sex with a lot of other good looking women because they could. Apples and oranges. And just curious Bob the dentist, how are you such an expert on rape? You admit to never having been raped, yet you are so quick to opine that just because somebody finds her story to have some credibility issues, you assume they are chauvinistic, misogynistic, and uneducated? Or have we arrived at the point where any female who makes an allegation should automatically be believed?

Desert Rat....Let me clarify..I am not equating rape with high risk sex...I was only saying thatRead More many men, in the celebrity life and otherwise, will risk everything, their careers, etc., to have sex....be it consensual or non consensual. As far as assuming that the women is telling the truth...I have no idea....without more info it would be presumptuous of me to assume anything...it is true, however, that many many men get away with rape, mostly recently Jameis Winston...the evidence against is hard to refute.....I would guess that very few rapes get reported as a percentage of total rapes...the statistics bare this out...and even fewer rapes, still, are prosecuted...thus, not too much fear of any athlete being sent to jail for rape. Mike Tyson is the only one I can think of though I am sure there must be others....

I don't "do" sports; for me it is just another entertainment/big business (like rap andRead More hiphop music) scam, so I love to go shopping and otherwise enoy places that would be crowded on a normal Sunday. I'm glad it won't be local, and hope (dare I say it) the local team don't make it. Nothing super about a football game to me! :-) Nothing "world" about the world series either. If you like it, fine, have a good time, I won't be in the crowd!

Here's a great option if you want to race or run for a great cause - runners go first at the DipseaRead More Hike for Zero Breast Cancer - which is a 6 mile loop which includes parts of the Dipsea Trail. The event raises funds for breast cancer prevention research and education through our local San Rafael-based organization Zero Breast Cancer. Follow the link to learn why this event gets more popular every year: http://dipsea.zerobreastcancer.org/
