I'm all shards
I can't take this anymore. Sick of hearing sportwriters, who last time I checked had only an anecdotal grasp of human anatomy and surgical procedures, speculate on the future of Amare. Know just fine, thank you, that microfracturing fucks up careers. And above all else, am capable of listing casualties we miss only slightly today.
(That's what's so frightening: not that Amare might not come back, but that we might forget him)
So what I need, to make it possible for me to enjoy my time away from Houston, is for an authoritative voice or two to show themselves. I would like someone with a distinctly technical understanding of STAT's situation to clarify for me:
a) How is this microfracture different from all others?
b) How might his freakish athleticism and youth figure into recovery?
c) Do we really have any comparable cases to go by?
d) When did medicine become a science of uninformed public consensus?
IF YOU DON'T HAVE THREE LETTERS AFTER YOUR NAME, I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT!!!!!!!!
And don't forget, if Amare goes, there's a good chance that this blog dies with him. Believe that.
