Discussion: Was it just me Superbowl

I enjoyed the game, being a Peyton Manning fan I hope he does retire on top. Mark, it was good to see Newton brought back to earth a little. Him not diving for the fumble at the end of the game says a lot about who he is. The old guard football players gave him a hard time about that. His after game interviews were not that great either, he has a lot to learn. Congratulations to the Denver defense, they really played a good game.

Discussion: knee replacement

I've had one on each knee, right knee 12/12 and the left one 11/13. Both are fine, stated playing again 4 months after each surgery. Everyone is different, i was bone on bone in the inside of my knee. Rest of the knee was fine. As long as your ACL and other parts of your knee are ok a partial should work. Robot was used on both of mine, doctor is still there but the robot arm makes sure its done correctly and no extra bone is touched. You get an MRI and the damaged area is mapped into the computer. The robot arm only works on the damaged area.
Good luck

Discussion: Tribute to one of the best!!!

First time i ran into Steeles was in the early 80's. We had just built this great new complex with 325' fences and everyone struggled at first to hit HR's. Steeles came to town for our 24th of July tournament in Salt Lake city. Our all-star team played them on Friday night and i could not believe how big these guys were. The smallest guy was their left fielder, his initials are RP and i believe he still plays on one of the top teams out of California. Then my next shock, they started hitting balls 50' or more out of the park as if they were playing on 200' fences. the pitcher who i later met was Craig Elliot and was he a character, never stopped talking. After awhile we were all laughing and listening to him more then caring about the game. Of course Big Mike was also on that team, i was playing second base and every time he came up i was 30' off the infield. Never mattered he always hit the ball 100' over the fence. Great team but the conductor Craig Elliot was the main man. My prayers are with his family.

Congratulations to all of those that will be inducted. I've played with or against many of them and they are very good players and even better people.

Discussion: Partial Knee Replacement Experience

Robo is correct -- not everyone qualifies for a partial replacement. I had my right knee done in 12/12 and my left knee done 11/13. Second one took alittle longer to get rid of the swelling but now both are good with no pain. Same as Robo i had the Medial done and luckily the other parts of my knee were in good shape and my ACL's in both knees were strong. As mentioned before consult with a good ortho doc that looks at everything before rushing into the operation. Always remember that the rehab is really important, do not rush back to sports or you will slow up the healing process.

Discussion: 50 major division Phoenix great tourney

What a great tournament over the weekend. All 26 teams in the 50 Majors were very good teams. We (AZMOB) lost our first game and came all the way back to finish fourth in what i felt was the most competetive tournament i have ever played in. Since our team is not going to be together again i just want to tell any of my teammates that read this site that i had a great time this year and i wish you all the best of luck next here with the teams you end up playing with.

Discussion: Huntsman Games stop by and say hello

Joe, you will really enjoy the Huntsman games. The games and the medals are nice, but meeting new friends from all over was the best part of the week. I've been there a few times and its always fun, i played on two teams in different age groups the last time and just by chance it worked out to where there were no conflicts and we won a Gold medal in each group. Have a good time and good luck in Phoenix.

Discussion: LVSSA tournamnet thoughts and observations

Joe, Einstein,
Good comments on the tournament and the ball. Sunday was a long day but it was also a lot of fun. Einstein, you did a great job of pitching in the very windy conditions. Keep up the great comments whenever you feel like posting a thought, it's always enjoyable to see what you and others are thinking. I am wondering though, not being on here very long--does "dirty" ever have anything positive to say about whats going on in Senior Softball? Joe, thanks again for getting me to the airport on time after our last game.

Discussion: Prayers for Joe Brown

I just want to add my thoughts regarding Joe Brown. I've only known Joe for Three years but i have to say he is one of the nicest people i have ever met. I've had the pleasure of rooming with Joe acouple of times this year while playing for Mob50. We had some great conversations about Joe's past along with stories he told me about players in senior softball. There is no limit to what Joe will do to try and help the team. I'am going to miss having him around the team the rest of the season but i'm also glad that the pain he has had for the last couple of months is now gone. Joe will recover and be back on the diamond and i look forward to that day. Keep all your thoughts and prayers coming for Joe's recovery.
