Just wanted to let all my "friends" at GoTitans know why Big TT has been out of touch lately. As you know I ride....at lot. Last Sunday I was part of a relay team for the Chattanooga Waterfront Tri. I did the cycling portion of course. The course is a 40 K ride, really not much for me truthfully, and I was about 22 miles into it when a Jeep, according to witnesses, swerved into one of the cones separating the cyclists from the traffic. The cone was sent flying....into my front wheel. Sending me down hard on my left side, according to my Garmin computer I was cooking along at about 26 mph at the time. I truthfully never saw anything....one moment I am finishing up my ride...then next I am down hard. Broken left hip, full replacement (surgery went fine), broken left collarbone (surgery went fine), and 3 cracked ribs on my left side. I have been home for a few days now....and have begun therapy. According to my Surgeon, a fellow cyclist btw, I should make a full recovery...but it will take between 7 months and a year. Simply walking now is something I no longer take for granted. Everything hurts, everything is swollen. I have never experienced anything more humbling in my entire life. I do see small improvements each day and try to stay focused on them. I don't know how much I will be around here...maybe less...maybe more...but the political bs doesn't seem to really matter as much....don't misunderstand, I still think you "leftist" are misguided fools....but I will make the attempt to keep it to myself. BTW, doesn't JCB drive a Jeep?
