her and ESPN naps and all social media, uh, almost fully combusted a couple hours ago because Colts quarterback Andrew Luck just announced that he's retiring.
He's not that old.
Um, but you know, in a statement that I read it, said that he said that he's had enough.
He has enough money to live his life the way he wants to, without giddiness, had bashed in and without, you know, having a practice football.
And I think that's just interesting, profound.
You know, I just think we're so lucky to watch him play.
He's such a great guy.
Regardless of what NFL team you support, Andrew Luck's just a good do.
You don't really hear anything bad about.
I'm sure people have seen those videos where he's miked up in games and gets hit by people rushing him and still get knocked over.
And it was a good hippie boy, but he's he's polite on the field, if that makes any sense, which is very weird forward, an NFL star.
But you know, it's a testament to what football does to your body.
Um, I never played football.
I had a brother played high school football and, you know, high school football.
Even his shoulders are messed up.
His backs always hurt.
He's had concussions.
And that's nothing.
Nothing compared to what an NFL player will go through by the end of his career.
Because you have to go to college.
Of course, then you have to go through.
You know, it's training every day and practices in other drills.
You know, Gaines, where £300.
6 foot five men are running at you and their goal is to put you into the dirt.
Um, and of course, with the recent CT conversations, I think that this is really interesting.
And, you know, I you know my meaning the next 20 years, you're gonna see a lot of guys retiring earlier than you know.
They could have their Still, we still have a couple playing years left where they are smart guys like Andrew Luck, who could have careers outside of sports.
And, you know, it just shows how not good of, Ah, uh, Commissioner Roger Goodell is how take there.
I think he he has done so little in the avenue of trying to protect his players.
It's kind of appalling and I hate to support him for hate.
Let's watch the NFL, because it it's so factor.
Kind of supports him.
So I wish Andrew luck all the best luck upon completely intended.
You're very lucky to watch him play.
Um, sorry, Colt Nation.
You guys must to speak puddle right now.
But, um, like I said, I think the whole you know, self reflection on his part to understand that he's gonna get beaten up completely.
But that's his job to get in car accidents every single day at work.
Basically, I think we're gonna see that in the future where more guys like I'm done from Goodell, you're not protecting us football.
The nature of football.
I mean this football, you can't change that.
But the way the players that protected some of the rules, I think could be improved.
But, you know, it's it's a sad day for football, but all the best to Mr Lenk.
