If you want to get me excited, talk to me about sports. Ask me to play some pickup basketball, to watch some American football, or nerd out with a computer game like Football Manager. The competition, strategy, and feats of athleticism found in sports just seem to tickle my fancy. I can’t wait for my children to get old enough to compete, so they can get the experiences and life lessons that sports teach so well.
But there’s a cloud hanging over many team sports: concussions and the serious impact they can have on the well-being of athletes. The issue has been discussed for years, but articles like the one written by Malcom Gladwell in 2009, and the increasing awareness of former athletes who commit suicide after head injury, have brought the discussion to the forefront of the sporting world. The link between contact sports, especially football, and brain damage are real, and are concerning for younger children and teenagers. I love football…but do I want my son to play it in high school? We’ll see, but I never would have had questioned this just ten years ago.
I’m not the only one who’s concerned; many smart people are trying to find ways to allow athletes to continue on in these sports while greatly minimizing the risk. From better helmets to stricter rules in youth sports, we’re seeing advancements. Ultimately, I think the best ideas will be those that take advantage of modern technology, which is getting cheaper, faster and smaller every year.

Believe it or not, Joel McHale, Ryan Seacrest and I have more in common than just our dashing good looks. We’re all part of Ford’s Random Acts of Fusion campaign promoting the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion.
Ford recently held a contest to bring one lucky person to Joel’s hometown of Seattle to see all the sites. The winner, Kristina from Stillman Valley, Illinois, cruised around the Emerald City in a new Fusion and even got a behind the scenes tour of Microsoft—Ford’s technology partner in developing Ford SYNC. I was on-hand to welcome Kristina and her friend to our campus, show off our fabled Garage and show them the some of the main benefits of Ford SYNC, on a bright and sunny day—clearly it doesn’t rain here all the time.
