Yesterday was a pretty tough day.
In short, I visited a doctor in New York City and while I won’t go into too much detail about my problems I will simply state that a couple of years ago I severely fractured my ankle and have been experiencing a whole host of problems since then.
So, yesterday I went to get a couple of shots to relieve some of the pain. I was surprised to hear that I was going to be put under a general anesthesia before receiving the shots. I have never had surgery before in my life so this was a pretty big deal for me. (Before I proceed let me just state that I am not the type to think that just because I write for a blog means you give a damn about my problems. I know you don’t and I don’t expect you to care. I feel strange even writing this kind of post but, trust me,there is a point to all of this.)
After the whole procedure, the doctor came to check up on me. I was a little out of it but he told me to hang in there.
However, before leaving the room he said to me:
“Oh, so you’re a fan of this Ultimate Fighting stuff?”
I was confused. Was he a JarryPark.com reader or had someone else told him I enjoyed covering the world of MMA? And, if so, who?
Actually, it was none of the above. As it turns out, throughout the entire procedure I wouldn’t shut up about MMA. Pretty wild, eh? Here I am completely out of it and all I can think of (supposedly) is combat sports.
Clearly, the doctor had no clue as to what I was talking about but these were some of his follow-up questions:
“So, what’s the deal, is Randy Couture going to fight in Montreal?”
Apparently, I feel strongly about The Natural returning to the Octagon on April 19th.
Next up, he asked:
“What’s up with this guy Kimbo Slice and are his YouTube videos that crazy?”
Hey, Kimbo is clearly on everyone’s mind these days – drugged up or not.
Finally, he said:
“So, you really follow this stuff?”
“Yes, doctor, I do. ” I replied with a smile.
Actually, I think its officially safe for me steal the famous Adidas tag line and state that All Day I Dream About
Enjoy the fights tonight. I know I will.
