AP: Athletes to donate brains for concussion study

I agreed to what?! When?! Says who? I did? Really? I don't recall.

From today's Associated Press:
NEW YORK - Six retired NFL players are among a dozen athletes who agreed to donate their brains to study the long-term effects of concussions, The New York Times reported on its Web site Tuesday night.

Former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson, one of the players who committed to the donation, hopes Boston University’s Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy can help clear up the debate on the issue.

“I shouldn’t have to prove to anybody that there’s something wrong with me,” Johnson told the newspaper.
