I would still argue that most people that are passionate about soccer (the world's most popular sport) aren't on twitter. Have you been to a pub in a foreign country watching a soccer match? It's crazy and full of emotions.
Many, many years ago, I cut my left pinkie at work. I didn't think it was anything serious, no real pain. I was headed on vacation the next day. Two week later and I still couldn't straighten the finger. The tendon had been cut. Because it happened at work it was a Workman Comp claim and I heard all kinds of crap from the boss and the medical department. The shop doctor tried to convince me that I was too old (26) to have the surgery and the finger would be fine since I wasn't in any pain.
I had the surgery and they placed a pin in my finger from the middle knuckle to a little past my nail. It was irritating but not painful until they removed the pin w/o any anesthesia.
The hard part was the PT. I didn't have any and worked with the finger myself. Arthritis has caught up to some of my fingers but still vividly remember the PT.
Day 59 - Frustrating day of practice. A bunch of swings, slow and full speed, trying to open my hips enough during the backswing. Each time I seem to get it, something else seems to go wrong. Golf, gotta love it.
