I saw those surgical photos on HRTV, the incision was huge.  Got to be very painful and slow to rehab

Possibly....I'm sure I would have said something about the ligaments/tendons..luckily  I have not had any surgeries for them, but my one son had for his foot, and another couple of people at my tennis club, plus I play with some nurses and doctors too and they always talk about these kind of surgeries.

Well I remember lots of prognostications that made me feel even worse than I did at the time. They were right. It's a really tough injury, from what I've heard since then.

Robbie Albarado had the same injury about the exact same time of the year last year. He was back mid to late march I think...and they're about the same age.

Laffit on HRTV commented "broken heel? Or shark bite?" Yes it did look nasty!

Foot injuries are bad.  Best of luck to Garrett.

 

I know you do not share my opinion but I love Borel's jockey calendar photo.  It's the first one where the rider's persoanlity really comes through and the man has some yummy arms on him. Mr. March is just fine with me.

Now, am I happy that my birthday month of October features Go-Go in all his jaw-dropping glory?  You bet!

Oh, good one!  I wish they had used the shot of Mike Smith lying in bed, that could have caused me to seek help for elevated blood pressure.

He sure manages to get his name in print alot, for the wrong reasons it seems.
