Super Bowl CTE

February 7, 2016.

Does the date sound familiar?  It might if you’re a football fan or a resident of Denver, Colorado.  On that day, almost one month ago, our nation huddled in disparate unity around living room and bar-side televisions, watching as the Denver Broncos claimed Super Bowl supremacy.

And it was easy – getting lost in the cheer and fandom.  Sinking into the community of sportsmanship and competition.  Forgetting the medical complications and ethical implications of supporting this national sport.

For many, February 7, 2016, was simply the day the Broncos won Super Bowl 50.  For a few cheers, we as a nation were okay supporting yet another Super Bowl CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy).
