There has also been a lot of talk today about concussions, and the steep price a man, his brain, and ultimately his family, pay in pursuit of rings like the ones Mackey wore on his fingers. Is this the price of glory? If people remember you for the things you did long ago, is it worth it if you can't remember them yourself? Or recognize a person you love in your final days? I doubt there will ever be an easy answer to that question.
