Morning Free Association: Charlie Coyle’s Knee

Embed from Getty Images

Did you know that Charlie Coyle had knee surgery? When we last heard about the Weymouth Wonder, he was having a “maintenance surgery” with Don Sweeney failing to detail what that actually was. It turns out his left knee was all sorts of messed up.

This surgery repaired multiple issues: a slight tear in his patellar tendon and an avulsion fracture, which occurs when a chunk of bone that is attached to a tendon pulls away from its parent bone and just flies around all willy-nilly. Okay, that might not be the exact definition, but you get the idea. Usually before resorting to the surgical option, rest, ice, and crutches are usually the way to deal with that injury. It seems that Coyle probably got his injury sometime during the season, meaning that he had little opportunity to properly take care of it.

Coyle is expected to be ready for training camp in September.

Morning all. Pretty productive weekend. Read A Man Called Ove and then watched the film adaptation. Got a bunch of chores done that I had been neglecting (looking you, fridge).

And it’s nice when you take your sweet ass time getting out the door and to the office and see you have a message from your boss admitting he’s dragging his feet as well!

I went back to bed for awhile. Not a fan of today.

Am groggy this morning. Went to see a late showing of a movie last night, and it both started later and ran longer than I was expecting. I’m sure I’ll be fine.comment image

The movie was the Black Widow movie, and here’s something I forgot. From some angles, Scarlett Johansen reminds me of someone I know. Someone important to me who just passed away a week ago. So there are scenes near the beginning where she’s running around all lost, running from the authorities talking quietly and fatalistically to another person, and the camera keeps catching her from those angles. There’s nothing that takes one out of the mood faster than to be reminded that you’re mourning someone.

It wasn’t even that great. I could have waited for this one to be on-demand.

So sorry, IW. Sucks when that happens because you’re trying to give your mind a break.

Good morning!
Selling all my kayaks and building an ark! Biblical rains here.
Got out on the class 4 section in my repaired boat…. That repair is not going to last. Still, I had crazy fun.
Knees, hockey can be tough on them. Let’s hope Coyle’s surgery went smoothly. He was starting to look like Charlie Coyle toward the end of the season.

Sore neck and a lil headache today. Flipped in a bad place and bashed my head on a rock or two. I rolled up pretty fast, but ouch. Glad the roll is working as I was headed for an even worse place! This was the river Friday. No, just no.

I saw it at first, and I’m thinking “looks mighty rough, but an experienced class-4 kayaker sees this pretty often, no?”
Then I saw a hole open up off to the side and couldn’t see the bottom of it, comment image

I’m told it’s easy, just make sure you stay away from those holes. They seem to pop into view rather suddenly, tho

Ouch! That video looks … kinda terrifying! So that’s eight minutes- what kind of distance did he cover would you say? Looks like hard work – how long is a typical session?

My friends and I play a lot, so can take two to two and a half hours. People who run straight through at normal levels – about 45 minutes! That’s A fast run.

I heard that in the first edit of the Book of Genesis, Noah made canoes. But the lions didn’t have opposable thumbs so they couldn’t row. And the Hippos were too big and just flipped the thing right away. They then said “Fuck it! We’ll learn to swim.” The snakes were generally ok with it, but because the sides of the boat were sloped, they kept sliding to the middle, getting crowded up over the keel. So Noah decided “I need something flat on the bottom of the canoe, like a plane. But Noah’s wife, not being fond of snakes couldn’t deal with it. “Noah, I’m sick of these mother fucking snakes on a mother fucking plane!”
So he had to come up with a new plan which turned into an ark in the re-write.

Yeah, evolution didn’t really do a good job building the knee. Could have spent more time perfecting that one.
