Hey Matt, they are coming to get your brain next week. Check the fine print.

If donating the brain can help doctors better understand what happens to it when it is injured that's great.

TJack offered up his brain, too, but it didn't meet the minimum size requirement.

Maybe the doctors can figure out why Birk snapped the ball on the groung to T.J. then after the game claimed it was a good snap.

The doctors should be able to map the area of the brain that makes one go blah, blah, blah. Especially if they use Birks.

Yes we really missed him and his penalties yesterday. AP would have had that long run called back because Birk was famous for a stupid hold away from the ball on long scores for the Vikes. Thank god that clown is no longer here.
