Hey everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I watched this movie called "Concussion". I thought this movie was really inspiring because it is about this guy who finds this disease, but then some people don't agree with it but he never gives up. The disease that he finds is called CTE (Chronic traumatic encephalopathy) and that is caused by people playing football and getting their head hit too much. The effects of the disease it a bunch of bad stuff and then you eventually go crazy and kill yourself. He wanted to stop people from playing football, but the NFL disagreed but he still fought. I thought that this movie had an awesome story about a guy in real life. I also like the cinematography but I mostly like the story. Also, a really interesting fact that I learned was that animals that hit their head a lot like woodpecker, and rhinos, they have a wall that keeps their brain in one place, unlike ours, ours is just in water and it floats. Every time we hit it with more that 60 G's, your brain hits against your skull and damages it. It's pretty scary because of the fact that I play football. Well, that's it for this free blog post, thank you for reading and have a good one!
