Default Old and Dumb

That's me, 51 in a couple weeks and pulled a stupid move at the high skrool football game tonight. Wife wanted a water and peanuts so instead of gingerly stepping over the chairs in front of us I decided to hop over side saddle. Landed on my right foot and knee buckled in the aisle. I actually saw the Northern Lights in south Louisiana for 15 minutes. I sat there like a dumbass for what seemed like an eternity while the medics checked me out and everyone around us helped. I did manage to walk out of the stadium but damn it hurt. Ice and heat now with an 800mg for pain. Sombitch I want to fish tomorrow since boat is checked out good today.

Acl is fubard, hoping I can get a year or two out of it before rebuild since my deductible/oop is $6,000. Good news is my BP was excellent after they got me cooled down in the ambulance as was my sugar.

Lots of ice bud. 30 minutes on, 30 minutes off... trust me. I just had mine operated on and I'ma firm proponent for ice therapy!! 800mg of Motrin helps too.

Call a couple of boy scouts, they're always up to helping the elderly.

Good thing you were at a football game with medics close by! Best wishes on your recovery and getting back out on the water.

At 51, your certainly not old! Trying something like that if sober, than yes by all measures stupid!
Show me a man or women that hasn't made a stupid decision like that and I'll show you a liar!

5 gallon bucket
2 cups rock salt
Fill with ice
Fill 3/4 way with water.

Place foot in said bucket for 5 minute intervals 3 - 4 times per hour.

51 for 13 years, a really nice way to put it. Beats the alternative!
