Kevin Ware's injury

We all cringed when we saw Kevin Ware's horrific injury during the Louisville-Duke game on the weekend.  Good to hear that the surgery went well and he's already up and walking with the aid of crutches. Ware's directive to his team came through---the guys went out and won it in the second half, and the Final Four looms this weekend.

I will never forget how I felt when I had major knee surgery when I was 16. I had ripped up my knee playing basketball, and the surgery was to repair the torn cartilage--big, ugly 10-inch cut!  Yes, before the days of arthroscopic surgery!!  The truly memorable moment was post-surgery when the PT person came in and said that it was time to get up and work the new knee!  That first time that you elevate and the blood rushes to the knee is a pain you will never, ever forget!  I mentioned on the air Tuesday that it's like your grandmother jamming her crochet needles into your knee!! Yikes!

Catch the NCAA championship game Monday night the 8th on WHBY.
