Super Bowl QB has dementia, wishes he'd played a different sport9/28/2012
If you grew up in the 1980s, you remember swaggering, headband-wearing Jim McMahon, who quarterbacked the Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl win in 1986. McMahon, now 53, is in the early stages of dementia and wishes that he'd played a different sport. "Had I known about [concussions] … I probably would have chosen a different career," he says. "I always wanted to be a baseball player anyway." McMahon, who played both sports in college, said he chose football because "it paid for everything." He's now one of more than 2,000 retired NFL players suing the league for "concealing the risks of repetitive concussions." McMahon attributes his mental decline to the four concussions he suffered during his 14-year career. [Source]
