I went for my morning run today and decided to start throwing in what I call "football running." These are basically a set of short, quick runs designed to imitate working on the side.

I promptly strained/tweaked/pulled my right quad.

I DO NOT need this three weeks before the season.

The good news is that . . . well . . . it's three weeks before the season and hopefully I have time to heal up. At least this didn't happen during the first game.

Could this be an "age" related injury? Hmm. There are some really nice retirement homes around the area. I would be happy to drive you if the eye sight is going. Just let me know. I'm here to help.

How kind of you.

I'm sure those pastoral skills aren't lost on your parishioners.

"Dear Mabel . . . sorry to hear you're in the hospital; would you like me to call the undertaker for you?"

I'll let you know when I'm working a game down in Dillon -- maybe you can be ready with the wheelchair.

Honestly, the day I start doing "football running" is the day you get to come and preside at my funeral - I want the kind with the 6 candles around the coffin by the way. So I can blabber on about you exercising while I sit and sip scotch. I'm guessing that I'll be the one welcoming you in the Pearly Gates - after the Big JC - instead of the other way around. Blessings and I hope you heal up soon.
