I was watching television this morning when a commercial featuring Colts quarterback Peyton Manning popped up on screen, telling me that football season is starting soon. Ooh, how exciting, I thought to myself. In case you didn’t know, I love Peyton Manning, and I really do love NFL football.
So, when I came home from work today, I ran into an interesting blog called “Zen in the art of Living Bipolar” written by a former NFL player, Gregory Montgomery, Jr., who has bipolar disorder. According to his recent post, a ‘Sports Illustrated’ article once mentioned something about his bipolar disorder, but this time, NFL Films plans to delve a bit further into the topic and tell an accurate story about Montgomery and bipolar disorder.
I’m a huge fan of the work that NFL Films produces (e.g. ‘Hard Knocks’ on HBO), so I am definitely intrigued as to what they might come up with to tell this story.
