Let the Healing Begin

I reinjured my arm while wakeboarding last week! Like Phil Mickelson after blowing the US Open “I don’t know what I was thinking, I’m such an idiot.”  Despite injuring myself I was under a lot more control than last time and I was even jumping wake!

My elbow now has these two bruised dots the size of nickel’s, they look like my forearm bones wanted to “pop,” right out the back of my elbow. Amanda is a bit worried so I have to humor her by taking it easy.

I’m going to take serious rest and hope that my arm heals right. I had a wrestling coach in junior high with arms shaped like John Wayne Bobbit’s enlarged, post-op penis. Rumor was that he had “taped it up,” and gone back in one too many times.  I don’t want that happening to me.

Being of the board is killing me!  Not blogging hurts too, but not boarding is the worst!  It gives me some time to really concentrate on my “daddying,” skills. Amanda’s mom, Sue, is in town, so today I’m taking the family to the shores of beautiful Lake Arcadia.  Amanda’s yelling at me to burn some Zeppelin to listen to at the lake so I better go. It’s a beautiful day, can’t wait to hit the lake! Maybe I’ll blog about that.

    “The biggest sports story in the second half of 2008 will be the Rays winning the World Series, turning the notion of checkbook championships on its ear yet again. The Rays will beat the Cubs in a seven-game series, despite the fact approximately 80 percent of the stadium will be filled with road-tripping Cubs fans for Game 7, in which Scott Kazmir will have a perfect game through 8 2/3, then get pulled because of his rising pitch count. The Cubs then will score eight runs in row to draw within 9-8, but lose it when Steve Bartman, sitting down the leftfield line, inexplicably leans away from a foul pop, allowing the Rays’ leftfielder to lean into the stands and make the game-ending catch.” — Neil Best, sports media writer, Newsday
