If he tells me I don't need surgery I'll take his advice especially since he's in the same boat as me. If it doesn't work out I can always have surgery at a later date.
    Thurman Thomas played most of his NFL career without ACLs.

    Didn't know about Thomas. John Elway played his entire College and Pro career without an ACL in his left knee. He trashed it in High School and back then it was considered a career ending injury, so he didn't get it repaired.

    There is definitely levels of torn ACLs. Big difference between McGahee and Thomas. Still amazing to think what Thomas would have been with surgeons abilities these days.

    Yeah, I used to see Elway at Copper all the time when I worked there. He wasn't allowed to ski. He'd hang out and watch his family. That just blows....

    Bledsoe had it in his Patriots contract that he couldn't ski. I wouldn't be surprised if skiing was part of the reason why he retired as young as he did. He could have hung on as a back up QB for a few more years if he wanted to.

    I wonder if his custom skis are any good?

    Count me out as being a Bledsoe fan. Terrible pocket presence....terrible at reading defenses.....long delivery. They figured him out pretty quickly. On the bright side, we could have drafted Rick Mirer instead.

    Figured him out quickly? That's kind of harsh. He had a 6-7 year run where he was among the best QBs in the league, then had 1 more great year in Buf and another solid year in Dal.

    Spring is park time for me. Since bumps are really not much fun on a board. But it's great to hit big jumps without the threat of shattering your face on a boilerplate landing. If the coverage is good, the woods are awesome in the spring. I'll ride until its just not worth the 2+ hour drive anymore, then I switch to mountain biking. I love when the two seasons overlap. One year we started downhilling at Mt. Snow when we had to cross huge patches of snow in shady spots on the trails. Definitely added a new element of difficulty to the trails!
