That's Gotta Hurt!

So, we just saw USA whoop up on Japan (10-0) in sitting hockey.  Canada’s going to be our strong rival since they beat Sweden 17-0.  I noticed some were on their sleds with their legs out and some kneeling.  I noticed this watching the biathlon and Alpine also.  I’m in awe, because a hockey game’s 3 periods.  Since I’ve got feeling in my legs; although, I can, I couldn’t kneel for that long.  My legs’d fall asleep, and I HATE that pins and needles feeling of limbs waking up.  In the Alpine, if the athlete has feeling, it must hurt hitting the bumps kneeling at the speeds they’re going, because their legs wrap UNDER their seating platform…that’s A LOT of pressure on the knees bent that way, then, when you factor speed and terrain?  OH, AND, IF THEY GET AIR, which I’ve seen in Alpine.  MAN!  If the athlete can’t feel or is a double amputee, it’s all good.  Still, though.

Be good to each other.
