  1. I’d be surprised if the concussion had anything to do with it. He wouldn’t get blurry vision yet be listed at day-to-day, that’s first thing. Kind of goes for any other concussion related symptom. If he was getting anything like that, he wouldn’t be talked about by Q as day-to-day. I’ve had a brain injury, so I could relate.

  2. He was probably just heading to the united center and somebody cut him off and he hit the L tracks post. There is always construction over there and people drive like maniacs around rush hour.

  3. Driving in the city sucks, especially on the streets with the L beams on them, can almost assure that He was cut off into the pole and the other car drove away, hopefully his recovery isn’t slowed

  4. Problem is he was quoted as “Going to the United Center” but Lake where the accident is listed as happening is one-way, going East, away from the UC. Hmmmm…

  5. Not that he needs a defense here, but he could have been coming from the west even if your right about the road direction

  6. Pete, true…he may have had breakfast off Lake and come out of the structure there. I don’t think he did anything wrong. I am concerned though with one thing. Has anyone seen Tiger’s ex? Was she in the area? :)

  7. Just read the sporting news article on it and it did say “Loop” . So that would be downtown east of the UC, but his driving isn’t questioned at all. The one thing that bothers me is that it says he was taken away by ambulance. Hopefully he is ok as he indicates.

  8. I just looked at the pictures. It looks like a pretty decent whack to the front of the car. The car photos explain why he was in an ambulance.
