    General Counsel having knee surgery tuesday

    I will be having arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus on tuesday. Too much marathon running over the years, and a sharp pain running around during the sf debacle in week one this year caused the tear.

    My doctor is the team doctor for the atlanta hawks. When he asked me when i wanted the surgery, i told him it had to be this tuesday, which required him to juggle his schedule. I thought he was going to have a heart attack when i explained to him that the surgery HAD to be done during the bye week so that i would be up and around and a least back on the exercise bike by the time we went on the road to seattle.

    I will be wearing a marshall faulk jersey during surgery. Not my game jersey, but a faulk jersey none the less. There are two main reasons for wearing the faulk jersey during the procedure. First, given that faulk has had about ten of these operations, i figure he will be with me spiritually. Second, given that this involves general anesthesia and there is always some risk that i wont come out of it, if i die on the table, at least my wife wont have to change my outfit before she buries me.

    Ramming speed to all, i know your thoughts and prayers will be with me,

    general counsel

    Funny stuff GC....a little over dramatic.....but hey, surgery can be scary. I hope it goes well for you. Knee surgery is standard stuff these days....nothing to worry about.

    GC - good luck with your surgery. You'll be fine. Wearing your Faulk jersey can't hurt.
    Here's to a sharp knife, and sharp eye. Then prop that leg up and start posting !!!!

    Re: General Counsel having knee surgery tuesday

    I've had two knee surgeries. Full ACL and meniscus reconstruction in 1992, and then had the same knee scoped to repair/remove torn meniscus in 2001.

    Not much fun, but on the plus side, if you've never listened to Pink Floyd while on percodan, you're in for a treat!

    Plus, you have the bye week to recover!

    Good luck.
