Blood Sport

I was reading a New York Times front page on the web when this picture and article came up. It was on the hockey player (presumably the one in the black jersey) talking about head trauma. Go figure.

But that’s not what captured my attention. It was the kid on the right. The smile on his face watching two men beat each other to a bloody pulp…

Something turned in my stomach.

I am not a hockey fan, but I love football. The intense contact is something guys just seem to love.

But that picture, that smile, just seems to haunt me.
