"I go to the gym so infrequently that I still call it the James."

 

-kid I went to HS with.

 

Pfffft.  That's nothing.  I still refer to it as "hey you!"

 

OK not really I go quite often but a like a good joke.  So when I hear one I'll be sure to share it.

So, things must be looking up for me! :)

(Winter was mild no brief, but still lasted a little too long...)



Spring yard work in the garden and mowing the lawn helps sweat off the pounds.

Your wife sent me a photo of you mowing the lawn last year:

I think the best coaches are the ones who were below average players. They can understand the struggles of not having elite level talent and working through it.

I can't remember who it was but there was a guy who either played for Ted Williams or played with Ted Williams. Anyway, he said the reason Ted failed as a coach because he couldn't understand how to work with guys who weren't as talented as him. It was like a "I can do it, why can't you? It's easy". What's easy for Teddy Ballgame isn't easy for Johnny LessTalent.

I have heard that many times before, because the superstars usually made it based on some great natural talent and made it based off of this talent. The marginal guys usually had to bust their @sses off training and learning skills so they know what it takes to succeed more then just being born with a skill.

 

They also say too that usually certain position players make better coaches because of how they play the game. In Baseball, catchers usually make better coaches then say a pitcher because the catcher is usually the one studying the other teams and calling the games for the team and pitchers so they have to be smart and know the game well. They also get to watch the game from a totally different view/perspective then anyone else. In Football, career backup QBs often make better coaches then guys who were starters because they are often spending more time on the sidelines with coaches, going over things with them and the starters while watching the games from the sidelines.

Abso!@#$inglutely.  I'm not looking for superman.  I'm looking with someone with the knowledge of what I need to be doing to get and stay healthy.  I could give a rat's ass if he smoked, ate like a pig and drank like a fish.  As long as he is sober (or at least relatively sober  :D) when he meets with me.  Who cares if he follows his own advice as long as it's sound advice.  And yes I'll take his advice.  Remember he's not an online doctor unlike Dr 420 who I got ma MM card from.   :lol:

it would depend for me.  if it was a bad ass, brilliant oncologist, i wouldn't give a ****.  if it was my primary/preventative physician, i'd turn myself right out that door. 

 

on a side note, could you really get a mm card from an online doc?

Well I went to his "office" but he "saw" me via Skype.  !@#$ing joke. 

 

And I went originally for a back issue and the MM did nothing so I had surgery.  I renew it now becuase...hey why not?
