Grimson Wonders About Any Brain Damage

from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star,

“It leaves me somewhat concerned about what the second half of my life might be like,” Grimson, 45, says, speaking over the phone from his law office. “What are my 60s and my 70s and, God willing, my 80s, going to be like, having suffered some of the trauma that I did? I don’t know.”

There’s no answer to the question, of course. Grimson said he keeps up to date on the nascent research into the effects of brain injuries. And if his reading of the science has taught him anything, it’s that “everybody reacts differently to head trauma.”

“You look at Muhammad Ali — he probably took fewer blows to the head than George Chuvalo, but Muhammad Ali is in a very different place than Chuvalo today,” Grimson says.
