That's kinda crazy the Bruins lost Chara, McAvoy, Carlo, Miller and Vaakanainen to injury.

left with
Lauzon-Grzelcyk
Krug-Clifton
Zboril-Kampfer
Moore
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Getting old sucks.
Tell me about it, I had surgery yesterday to remove a massive kidney stone (9.7 millimeters X 8.3!).

Kidney had completely shut down, surgery went well and I'm on the road to a full recovery.

But yeah, what a drag it is getting old.

Used to get numb wrists once in a while...

He suggested videoing myself when I slept. I did. I was curling them underneath myself for long periods of time.

Yeah I was "drinking like Blob" in the 3 months leading up to that stone.

But during the last 5 weeks I couldn't have so much as a drop. :(

No coffee either!

I always drink a lot of water btw, this problem is mostly genetics...

It always is. Are you strictly on the bump or can they hide you at 1B or in the hay?

Blob is winding it back these days. Until he winds it up again for Christmas. :lol: My Doc gave me grief when I leveled with him my actual consumption during a recent physical. So now I smoke more weed.

And stay away from the NSAIDs!!!

I ended up with a bout of renal failure 3 weeks ago. Sucked ass. Thought I was about the have a heart attack.

July-August they thought I had gout, so I was getting toradol shots and popping IBUprofen or naproxen in between just to function at work. Then I pinched that nerve in my back/shoulder in September and carried on with the Motrin and Aleve. That coupled with some dehydration and not enough water and bam.....my kidneys were PIIIISSSED!

Doctor says, "You know, you aren't a young buck anymore."

You'd think I would have known better too...... :look:
