Football is a dangerous sport and players can be hurt while playing. That happened to a friend of mine in a college game who was hit pretty hard on one play.
The doctor came onto the field while we all stood around him, waiting to learn how badly he was hurt. In order to do that the doctor asked my friend a few questions as he lay on the field.
“What’s three plus three?” the doctor asked him.
“Seven,” my friend said.
“What’s the capital of the United States?”
“Which state is farther east, California or Florida?”
At this point, the doctor thought that my friend was confused and probably had suffered a brain concussion so he told the coach to take him out of the game.
But I quickly spoke up. “Don’t do that, Doc. Let him play. He’s alright. He didn’t know that stuff even before he was hit.”
“Hocus Pocus” doesn’t work anymore; I think they changed the password.
Thought for the day
Radical gratitude looks like this: “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV).
