Basically, a car pulled in front of him, he smacked the winshield, then smacked the pavement. He was bleeding from the head and did not initially know who he was. They should know the extent of the damages in a few hours. Hopefully. It's stupid people still ride Motorcycles without helmets.

Of course it's stupid to ride without a helmet. But then again, if degree of safety is all that's ever considered, it's stupid to ride a motorcycle to begin with. There's not exactly a lot of protection afforded to a rider, even when a helmet is worn.

There has to be a balance struck somewhere between living a life of caution and living of life at all. I mean, it's stupid to skydive. It's stupid to drink non-distilled water. It's stupid to kiss a babe without a health check first. Hell, it's even stupid to play football.

But if all we ever did was limit risk to our lives, life wouldn't be very much fun.

If he wants to ride his dangerous rice rocket, so be it. If he wants to risk even more damage to his head by not wearing a helmet, that's his choice. I personally have no problem with it.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

His contract forbids taking part in dangerous activities. If his career is over, the Steelers may be in their rights to void his contract. Not to forget that thing about him being the most important player on the team....
