Bad Gravity!

You need this Smurf!     It's been brought to my attention that Monponsett, one of AOL's resident sports bloggers, rode her bike through a rather dense pocket of New England gravity and took a rather nasty tumble. 

    Now, I encourage everyone to swing by her blog, High Above Courtside, to send her a little love and some good thoughts to help repair her thumped noggin.  Laughter is, after all, the best medicine.
    As for me, I went out and looked at helmets and found this old-school Patriots' brain-bucket for The Smurf.  Look Mon!  I can see you wearing something like this.  Unfortunately, it doesn't have the old Pat the Patriot, but I think this new one looks solid.  I can totally see you racing down the road with this on your bean.  I can even hear the children of New England weep in fear should they see this coming up behind them. 
    "Mommy!  Daddy!  What is that?"
    "I don't know, dear child.  I think it was the ghost of Red Grange.  In color.  The Pats' must've started signing dead people." 

    Anyway, Stacey.  You get well soon.  Rest up.  And get a helmet. 



  1. The Maginot Line was nothing but a helmet for France, and a lot of good that did....

    If you want to play the game, you have to take your lumps. I've always felt that way, and I rarely let fear keep me from what I'm doing... even if I have to exclude common sense to do so.

    My mother said that I have more heart than brains. My father thought that I'd make a fine free safety. My husband calls me "the little engine that Could."

    I played basketball in college at 5'1". I fought the two guys who mugged me. I readily jumped into basketball scrimmages with my boys teams when I was coaching- if you ever hear me talking about how I broke my leg twice, the second one was in just such a scenario.

    "Onward through the fog," my Power Hitter says. "Damn the torpedos, fuck tha police, and last one in's a rotten egg."

  2. You used the word 'rather' twice in your opening sentence.

    not that there's anything wrong with that...

  3. Lucky I wasn't riding tandem with Dan Rather.

  4. Aren't the cranberries gorgeous in Mon's pics!!!  I have already sent her good wishes and I am keeping her in my prayers!

    be well,

  5. bubble wrap stacey, bubble wrap. The when you fall people will hit the ground thinking a mortar just went off.
