Sports Techie Baby!

The best reason 2013 is the year of the Sports Techie is because I am expecting my first child this year with Jessica Stone. Not sure on a name yet but we do know it’s a boy.  I am more excited about this blessing than words can describe.  Writing this blog is in tribute to my son as a good omen to his future and the Sports Techie adventures to come.

GMen

The best helmets in the world cannot prevent concussions

I’ve suffered concussions from playing lacrosse and crashing a Mt Bike in the city. I think back and wonder about those cold and wet soccer balls we had to head down at Marymoor Park that could not have been good for us. Played football in 5th and 9th grade and I’m pretty sure I got by ok but time will tell. Writing this Blog is eye-opening and scary; however, I know sports technology such as the kind Schutt Sports develops will forever help improve football player’s protective devices.

Helmets protect the body’s most vital organ the brain and ultimately help reduce concussions...
