Thanks Bill. Greatly appreciate.
Well Pete. Moved to Florida as you know. Figured may as well try and get in some shape and start playing ball once again. So joined a softball team. Havent played in 10 years. Obviously if anyone knows me I go all out and wanted to try and impress and see if any of my skills are still there. Well 3rd game back my comeback is over. I was up at bat and smoked a shot down the left field line to the fence. First step out of batters box I hear this loud pop. Just like you read about, hear about. Literally I hop on one leg to first base so I dont lose the base hit. I literally get carried off the field, driven right to orthopedic and determined I ruptured my achilles. OMG First surgery ever, wife bitching Im too old to play softball, lol And the achilles is a bitch of an injury. Complete bedrest for almost 2 months. Got cast off, boot on and now I can finally start walking with a cane. Therapy next week and cant do rehab for another 3 months. I have a new found respect for the athletes that go thru this kind of injury. Just wow.
Funny thing is my surgeon was an intern under the trainer for the Miami Dolphins years ago. Right when Dan Marino ruptured his achilles. Although he said my rupture was the worst he has seen since Dan's. Made me feel so proud.
Similar to me thinking I was still 18. 2 weeks ago went to play basketball, the day before walked a tower (stairs) 40-50 yards UP then down, a couple miles around the park, but the basketball was it. My competitive nature took off as well so the result is an appt with the orthopedic man on April 2nd. We share some traits here. Not sure if we are smart or not. Seriously my friend, do what they say and I will too. We 'll both recover together and set a date to meet in some far reaching place in the future.
Well my friend. Final Four is in Georgia next year and the year after that its in Indy. So how does that sound?
We went to Houston last year and going to New Orleans next week. Its really a special trip, get to see places I never have been and the atmosphere is awesome. And did I say the co-eds all over the place.
