grateful for his work with the Argos though in the early 70s

It's something that stays embedded in the memory bank. I broke my tibia and fibula in the wilderness 4 years ago. When I had a buddy on the radio he asked, "How bad is it?'
I said "Think Joe Theisman". No more questions were needed.

Tough break...literally. How old were you when it happened and how long until you recovered? Hopefully, you recovered ok.

Thanks for your concern..
I was 58 at the time. I now have a titanium rod in my tibia and plate and screws in my fibula. It's quite the story and I should probably tell it in Off The Wall since this thread is about Alex Smith and Joe Theismann.
Hopefully Alex has been as conservative with his money as he is with his quarterbacking and can think about "walking" away from the live action.

We're going to find out the stadium was built on an indian burial ground, and THEN they'll change the name of the team.

That kind of stuff freaks me out 

Both injuries happened on the same yard line in the same stadium, both games had the same final score, and both had their legs broken by the only two 3-time NFL defensive players of the year.


Cue twilight zone music.

  Not the same stadium as the Skins played at RFK back in the 1980's.  With proper sympathy now expressed for Smith can we now talk about curses?

Ditto. I'm no doctor but I doubt that injury is career threatening. I could be wrong though. Even though I have a strong stomach, I understand how painful that must of been. This is why I have no problem with what LeVeon Bell did.

 

yes til bell. He screwed himself and his team, he's not getting the money he wants and who wants a super self absorbed player on their team.

A Barbarian is a cold, callous, and uncaring soul. Thus, someone getting their leg snapped like a twig has no effect on you. Lol

Wasn't thinking about my name as a username.

 

 

Although the meat grinder scene in kingsman was a little rough.

Disagree completely. What happened to Alex Smith could've happened to Bell. Would you really risk 50m to play for a team that's lowballing you? That's what a grunt would do. Bell played it right. His career could end at any moment.

and it still could so what's the difference. He's never making this money back and no one is paying him over 14, he might as well retire.
