Since we’re coming down to Election Day faster than the Road Runner on a desert straightaway, I figure it was time to bring out a big gun for Episode 62. Nathan Wurtzel is a friend of mine who is also a crack political observer and quite a good consultant. We went on a little tour of some of the more interesting races around the country. I really didn’t want to recap some of the races that everyone’s talking about, so we found a few races not on the MSM’s radar that could be real surprised on Election Night.
The recent talk about concussions in professional football, and the NFL’s attempts to stop players from butting heads with each other has stuck in my craw for a couple weeks until it finally came out in the second half of the show. It’s obvious that concussions are a serious health issue for players and a potential PR disaster for the league. What the league is trying to do, though, is defy physics, decades of coaching its players get, and its own marketing. Maybe there isn’t a solution that will end the problem but I think I, helped by some good comments from the live chatroom, came up with something should help, if the Commissioner is willing to trust his people just a little bit.
I’d love for you to leave a comment or two about the show — either good or bad. I can’t get better if you don’t tell me in exacting detail how much I suck and I’ll never get an overinflated sense of personal worth if you don’t tell me how awesome I am. So get cracking!The Delivery - Episode 62
