Hello everyone and welcome to Monday. I bet you are wondering why I have Kylo Ren on the screen first thing (you do know who Kylo Ren is don’t you?) I have him on the screen because after yesterday this is the way I am feeling. Yes the Dolphins lost but its not like they were going undefeated anyways so go ahead and get the crap game out of the way and let’s move forward. No, I feel like this because, and I hope I’m wrong, I feel like the last refuge I had from reality was stripped away from me right before my eyes…..

So I know not everyone feels this way about sports, but for me football and Sunday have always been the one thing I could look forward to every week throughout the season that no matter what was going on in the world I could look to for solace. A day that I could let loose of my emotions and cheer on the team I love (and watch others as well). Yesterday I felt as if that was lost because of all the coverage of the kneeling (or standing, or exercising or staying in the locker room or insert method of protest here).

Now listen closely, I get it! I grew up in a Jewish household so I can be the first to tell you how discrimination works based on race, religion, or lifestyle. I would hazard to say that in most parts of the world, my heritage is the most hated one on the planet so I know all too well about the frustration the Black and Hispanic communities feel. Also, because we live in America, people have the right to peacefully protest however they want; that is why the military continues to make these sacrifices so even people we disagree with can have the freedom to speak their minds without fear of being thrown into a lion’s den.

The point this morning is not to argue whether the players should be standing or not, the point is that the Enemy has found yet another way to divide us. I respect the office of the President but he has allowed the evil one to divide our country in every way possible and now my Sunday freedom from reality may be gone as well. I get the players are mad, they should be! Their leader just called them a “son of a bitch”; I would be pissed as well and would want to make a statement, however it consumed the WHOLE DAY. No one was even talking about the games themselves even after it was over. I mean, my Fins got their butts handed to them by a team we should have destroyed and all the media was doing was asking the players how they were going to protest next week. WHO CARES? Not on this day, not on the day that we look to sports for a release of the ugliness of the world. Not on the day where we normally all come together to unite for our teams, not to divide us which is exactly what is happening….

Friends, again, please don’t get me wrong I am ALL for peaceful protest and racism does not take a day off, I also get that. We live in a country where everyone should be treated equally and we are not. We need to get our head out of the sand on that one folks. Just because a black athlete is getting paid millions of dollars a year, does not mean that all of a sudden racism went away. However, at least from this person’s perspective, can we have our day back? Can we get our day of release and unity and fun back? Do we not have enough days throughout the week to cause division? Hopefully we can and for this writer we can get back to football….

Peace, Truth, and Love,

David

Good Morning!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Saturday! Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days but it has been a bit of a crappy stretch for me health wise and just didn’t have it in me to write anything. I’m about 85% or so; still have the lingering cough and of course the hip issue (which I will get to in a minute) but overall feel like I’m at least on the right path again. Hope everyone is doing well out there and would love to hear from you guys. You can communicate to me through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course right here as well.

So, apparently I am officially mortal…..For those that don’t know a lot of my backstory, one of the more finer moments in my life happened when I thought it would be a great idea to not tackle other people but instead up the ante and try and tackle a car. Didn’t work out real well for either of us but I think the car probably got the worst of it lol. Seriously though I was getting off the city bus at the ripe old age of 14 and didn’t look both ways, darted out and BAM! Got flipped up in the air, somehow landed enough on my feet that I was able to walk about 20 yards before collapsing over a railing….I don’t remember much after that except for waking up in the hospital about 12 hours later not having any idea what happened. I was truly blessed that day because one half second either way in time and I would not be here writing this blog. God was in control even then….

I tell you this backdrop story of mine because I had thought that all my wounds had healed; not so much. See many people have told me I waddle rather than walk because one leg is shorter than the other. Really though its not my leg but my hip and back area got knocked pretty good and I never really got it taken care of; so now at the ripe old age of 46 its back and back with a vengeance…


Now, keep in mind my pain tolerance is pretty low, even for a guy, but this pain I knew was different so I went to doc about it. He did some X-rays and I got the call yesterday that I have some “very significant” arthritis in said hip and need to go to an Orthopedic specialist. I do understand this is not life threatening or anything like that, but it did give me my very first sense that “hey, goofball, you really won’t live forever”. It also reminded me of a very dark time in my life where by all rights I should have died that day. (Satan has been trying to take me out ever since). It reminds me that I’m over half way done with this crazy thing called life and my physical body will never be the same. Again, there are those in my life that are dealing with so much worse, but for me, this is a little bit of a sobering reminder of my mortality. Make sense?

I’m very aware that me losing weight couldn’t hurt the situation, however, I also know I would be dealing with this heavy or not. Back in the 80’s cars were still made with steel and so were not as forgiving as they may be today. This pain in my hip is that constant reminder; maybe the new doc will be able to help, maybe not, but as for me the first reminder that my days are not as many as they used to be just creeped up and said hello. Cute thing though that I will continue to remember as well that even though my earthly days are getting smaller, my eternal days are just around the corner. Maybe someone out there is also dealing with a similar experience? I would love to hear from you about it! Leave a comment in the comments section or however you see fit. In the meantime remember also that God is still in control and while the earth will reclaim your body, God has your eternal soul which if given to Him will live for all eternity where pain does not exist…..

Peace and love my friends, Happy Saturday!!
