I don't know if it's a factor in this case, but in general, our society has these kids (in all sports) playing and training too much. Their bodies never get time to heal properly, especially since they are also still growing. I could tell you crazy stories just with my nieces' soccer teams, sometimes they are on 2 soccer teams at the same time, play multiple games throughout the week, practices, outside of team training, then tournaments on weekends. It's out of control.
Thank you for your service and sorry to hear about your shoulder.
If I am reading your OP right, you currently have a tear(s)? If so, if surgery is an option, I would do that then try to go without any major or addictive pain killers. If they have to physically repair tears, I wouldn't think that any amount of rest or homeopathic solutions will ever do anything to fix it properly.
I played football for many years and the last time I went to a specialist for my shoulder, they recommended cortisone shots. I was HOPING they would just do a surgery to fix my issues, but they said they could not. I never went back. The only thing that has allowed me to keep lifting weights is a spice called turmeric. I posted a thread on here about it awhile back. It is something to look into, it may or may not help your specific situation, but it is safe and cheap and can be bought at the grocery store. Take it with ground black pepper and coconut oil. It's a natural anti-inflammatory.
Others things you may want to try are to look into other natural recipes and foods, kombucha tea, physical therapy, etc. Again, if your tears need surgery to repair, there is nothing you can just take to properly repair them. These are just suggestions to do post-surgery.
I've had farts like that, where the odor hits you right in the face.
Thank you 11W for not allowing politics. It's nice to have a place online to get away from it all.
Best jersey's ever. IMHO.
Between that and the MSU kicker doing some goofy celebration last year, I bet Urban has nightmares about windmills.
I agree to a point. By the time the end of the season hits, you have a decent sampling of teams that have played each other, especially within a conference. I'm not saying it should be impossible for 2 teams from the same conference to be in a 4 team playoff, I'm just saying that it should be rare, difficult, and require some off-the-wall circumstances. At this point, so many things could still happen, it's not really worth discussing all of the what-if's.
Unless a whole lot of crazy things happen across cfb, no, there shouldn't be 2 teams from any one conference in the playoff.
I had no idea what was meant by hellcat, but this jumped into my mind...
I read the book early last week, made study notes and wrote down ways to apply and practice it in my family as I went through it, and created a workbook for my family.
Early last week, our entire family sat down to read the Prologue together, discuss it, and talk about why our family wants and needs to use the system outlined in the book. A few days later we read Chapter 1 together. Since then, we have been practicing "No BCD" and "Intentional, On Purpose, and Skillful" behavior (Above The Line) and holding each other accountable to it. Next we'll read Chapter 2 together and apply/practice those principles in daily life and hold each other accountable. We'll continue to read together, discuss, and practically apply each chapter to our lives as we go.
One of the things I did with my youngest was to have her do a small workout with me on Saturday. I created an adverse situation during the workout and watched her fight through it. She did great and I gave her plenty of positive feedback. I plan to do things like that, creating adversity and helping them through it. Also, life itself creates plenty of opportunities to fight through adversity.
So far, the biggest change is in my own thinking. I find myself thinking in a much more positive way, and catching myself when my thoughts start to turn negative and then turning them into more positive/productive thoughts.
Also, my oldest is 13, I saw a huge change in her attitude over the weekend. A soccer game Saturday morning provided her first true test and she passed with flying colors.
Master the Above The Line culture within my family.
If you haven't read it yet, read Urban's book Above The Line. It will make perfect sense why his teams have such a record.
