Soccer Can Cause Brain Damage

Scientists have found signs of brain damage that could cause dementia in a handful of former soccer players, fueling worries about the danger of frequent knocks from heading the ball or colliding with others on the field.

The small study was the first of its kind, involving post mortems on six men who died with dementia after long careers playing soccer. All were skilled headers of the ball.
This should be a general rule in life: Bouncing shit off of your brain bucket is A Bad Thing.

(I was going to snark that I thought that suffering from brain damage was a prerequisite for playing soccer, but that's probably too soon.)

Did the resident play soccer or football?
That would explain volumes.

Soccer wasn't big back then. He probably would have had trouble with football, what with his tiny hands.

But really, His Fraudulency has never shown any inclination towards physical exertion, other than playing golf.
