That sucks dude. Happen on the commute or on the Taco Ride? Crutches? Is T gonna be able to fit both you and Izzy in that trailer for the next few weeks? :) If you need anything (beer, lawn mowed, etc) gimme a ring.

Joe said...

WOW! Never seen that before. Just rest up until some costume race/ride makes way.

Get well.

Surgery in the future? Hopefully just a tweak to the knee and not blown/tore. If required, get the knife right away, you will be back in a few weeks. 3 for me with both knees done at the same time. And I'm not as young or tough as you :)

Squirrel said...

not a leg acl injury, its in the shoulder acl.... no surgery just pain pills.

peace and thanks guys

Damn man. I was bummed to hear that yesterday. At least it's slightly better than broekn bones. I guess now we all know for a fact that you're not a flying squirrel... Ditto on what Fuller said if you need a hand with anything, you know the number.

You can tell the kinda fella you are by the number of well-wishing posts already on your blog.

Heal soon my friend.

Watch some old 3 Million Dollar Man episodes for inspiration.

Brian, I have a 48cm Motobecane Super Mirage you can work your stuff onto if you want it. Just call me (230-2562) and we can work out a way for you to get it picked up. Blue, chrome fork tips, bb & headset good to go. Seen the new Miller cans with camo on them? Killer! Later! Greg Moore

Dirt would have definitely cushioned the blow.Here's to a speedy recovery, and hopes that you will be leading the way on the Thanksgiving morning ride. I think we need a logo design for that ride.
Take care,
Duffy
