NFL Countdown #1 and My Brain Hurts


NFL Countdown #1: Aaron Rodgers returned to peak form in 2020, throwing just 5 interceptions while hitting career highs in most passing statistics. That guy in Kansas City was pretty good, too.



I was really hoping to finish this series of blogs off strong. I put a ton of effort into this, spending hours every day writing and putting together these graphics to get my feet wet in this space. I really enjoyed doing all of this, and I hope to quit my day job some time soon and think about football for a living. I challenged myself by making my first ever blog a commitment to do the same thing for 30 straight days, and it was never a chore until now. I kept with it throughout this past month, diverting essentially all of my free time into trying to cobble something together worth reading. But today, I can't do that.


I believe I was hit by a car last night. I was on my way to my friends' apartment, and I can't believe I made it there in one piece. I have some minor scrapes and bruises all over my body, my neck hurts, and this headache won't go away. I don't really remember anything between the hours of 4 and 8pm - I have short blips of being at my friends' apartment, them taking me back to my apartment, and my girlfriend being incredibly worried that I had no idea what I did that day. Some of my memories eventually came back, but that block from 4-8 is still a mystery to me.


I've been laying around my apartment all day, getting rest and wearing sunglasses to limit my exposure to light. I'm not in much pain at the moment, but I know looking at a computer screen is one of the worst things you can do after sustaining a concussion. I'm not one to make excuses, but I physically can't do this today. I'm not firing on all cylinders, and it hurts to think. And to top it all off, I think my dog is pissed at me for not giving him enough attention. I'll write the Patrick Mahomes/Aaron Rodgers blog when my brain is feeling happy again.
