Meh, injuries suck. I'm gonna have surgery to have my ACL and meniscus tears repaired on the 4th.
Being out of the game sucks, but worst of all is how I went down. I had just moved to a neighborhood that had a rare (for Costa Rica) court and a weekend game and I was excited because due to CR not being a big basketball country I was easily the best player on the court and was already thinking about not being too flashy as I gave them the business and all..
On the very first play of the very first game I got in they passed me the ball at the top of the key. I crossed my defender over once, then did it again for good measure before driving to the basket for what I was planning would be a fundamental, non flashy layup.
As you may have guessed I didn't make it, my knee buckled right when I jumped and I collapsed to the floor and had to hop home on one leg with the ball. Most embarassing injury ever!
It will be almost a year of physical therapy before I can get back out on the court (putting my NBA career in serious jeopardy), and even though I've moved an hour away now when I am better I am going back there to their game and finishing that ******* layup!
Injuries suck! Wish we could play on non-injury mode like in video games.
