Its A Sideways Game Man! You Play Sideways

Last week something happened to me that was - as usual - very unusual. As I was being escorted to the Emergency Room, I was thinking "this can't happen to anyone else". That is until I saw this video. It exactly represents what happened to me that day. You got to watch the whole video and it is simply awesome. However, do listen carefully to the description after 5:31 mins to really know the details of what happened. 


The ER nurse usually asks for the scale of pain from 1 - 10. But as soon as she asked she remembered my description of the injury and said "I am not going to even ask you for a number. Its too cruel". Then they spent 10 minutes looking for a set of pliers. I cant imagine how David Lloyd managed a welder. Strangely, I was really thinking about this (dont watch more than 30 secs after clicking) at that time. To make light of the event and keep the spirits high, I even mentioned this (same here) very scene to the team mate who drove me to ER. Sadly, he was too young to recollect the movie.

Get well soon and start playing tennis instead. The worst you can get is a torn rotator cuff.

This is why DONALD TRUMP prefers golf over baseball(comparable to cricket). Even at the age of 65, he has a beautiful 42 year old trophy wife, and they even have a son who's just 6(Trump's fourth kid).
