	"San Francisco 49ers QB Steve Young was cleared to play this week
	by his neurologist and neurosurgeon after suffering another
	concussion, his sixth, against Tampa Bay.  This reminds me of the
	pumpkin I had in my sophomore year of college.  When we first got
	it, the pumpkin was firm and solid.  But we never cleaned up our
	room, and as the months went by, that pumpkin got mushier and
	moldier.  Hey Steve!  It's May, we're going home, and your brain is
	our pumpkin!"
