FORK IN THE ROAD: Fox Sports' Nate Ryan, on mandatory concussion testing for drivers: "NASCAR doesn't want to get itself in the situation that the NFL currently faces with the conundrum how players are facing, unfortunately, a lesser quality of life because of hits they took during their career and NASCAR is trying to be proactive and prevent drivers from facing that" ("NASCAR Race Hub," FS1, 12/10).
HE'S THE WORST: EPSN's Keith Olbermann last night designated his "World's Worst Person in Sports" to Turkish Football Federation President Yıldırım Demirören, who is "ready to fine two of league's imports for what they wore under their jerseys during matches last Friday." The players, who were both African natives, wore undershirts honoring the late Nelson Mandela ("Olbermann," ESPN, 12/10).
