Conrad: Comedic on the Concussion

Jimmy Conrad, in better times

Jimmy Conrad, in better times

Forget that a late hit or 15-yard penalty wasn’t called, the fans I was watching the Panama game with were in shock at the glazed searching look from Jimmy Conrad after he was belted with a skull going for a corner in Saturday’s game. While no malice was intended, the hit itself was certainly malicious.

Conrad writhed on the ground, more groping to figure out where he was than actually deal with pain. Jimmy was down–and then walked from the field.

Thankfully Conrad is doing better and has few quips via Twitter to the US fans:


“I’m in Chicago, trying to figure out how this happened to me, and in doing so, I feel a little like Dr. Richard Kimble from “The Fugitive”


“Monday Update: Still feel like I had too much wine last night so I might wander around Chicago & see if I can remember how to get back home”

“Just landed in Chicago. Still dizzy. Living the dream.”

“Post Concussion Update: Why can’t I get the song “Ring My Bell” out of my head? Also, a BIG thanks to all the well-wishers! Appreciate the love”

Get better Jimmy — the US needs your aggression.

Wish JC well on the comment board below and we’ll forward it along!

See what Jimmy can do for you!

We appreciate the sentiment, Jimmy, but you should really be focusing on yourself right now.

Here’s another clip we were reminded about of another Jimmy going down:

    Hey Jimmy — get better! Who cares if The Shin Guardian says you look like William Defoe, you’re not evil in our book!

    All the best!

    Keep an eye on Seems like it is just getting going, but it has potential. The two MLS “preview” videos are worth a look.

    Hey Jimmy, hope you get better soon. Best wishes in your pursuit of joining the Nat’s team. Hope to see you more on the pitch. All the best.
