Ds fell off his bike and has a concussion.  This is his third.  He never got one playing one of the contact sports he plays.  He says that is it for football for him though.  He likes marching band more.

Aww, too bad!  At least he has something else to turn to...and unless he gets hit by a tuba, he probably won't get a concussion again.

Well this is his third concussion.  His first was skiing, second ice skating and now bicycling.  The kid is quitting football, but still in hockey and lacrosse, both higher risk sports!

Eew, yeah!  Third concussion is pretty bad.  I stopped doing high-risk stuff after I got my second concussion.  Keeping in mind, of course, that for me, high-risk involves things like playing dodgeball and climbing up slides.  Coordination is not my strong suit.

I got a few concussions bicycling.   I am not coordinated either!
