Athletics: Is the price you pay worth it?

I often listen to sports talk radio to and from work each day. If you have been in touch with the news lately concussions and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) have been major stories in relation to American football. Because of this participation numbers at the high school and youth levels have dropped significantly. What I have to talk about below has nothing to do with concussions or CTE. Yes from the research we know now about concussions; you can make a better choice as a way to make a living than football, but I have a beef with a different issue.

    Plenty of people who never did anything have all kinds of physical problems. Staying out of the arena doesn’t guarantee a pain free existence. But anyone who really loves to compete wouldn’t trade any of it for less pain.
