Good Thing I’m A Habs Fan

Like Mario Lemieux, who had such a bad back he had to get a trainer to tie his skates.

I had a professional massage today by a massage therapist in daylight hours. (as opposed to a massage by a professional lady of the night.)

I did a huge number on my back and if I had skates, somebody would have to tie them for me. This massage therapist explained to me that when I picked the object up when the damage happened, my pelvis rotated like it should, but then it got stuck and couldn’t rotate back. So he’s putting it back in place over a period of several visits. He also said the damage made one leg an inch shorter than the other, which he fixed.

For others – Leaf fans or Bruins fans and such, this type of massage would hurt like crazy. Pain from the depths of hell. But because I’m a Habs fan? Didn’t hurt one bit.

  1. So I’m glad you’re getting the Mario Lemieux special, Dennis, and thanks for clarifying the daylight masseuse from the night time one. I’m a Habs fan, and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have tolerated that level of torture, but then again, I even still have all my teeth – one of the benefits of being a girl and thus not qualifying to be drafted by the sexist pigs leading the NHL. At least now you get to be one of the few that can appreciate Jacques Martin’s calm delivery of his players’ lower body injuries.

  2. Thanks, Tyg. The massage therapy was actually quite interesting because he explained in laymen’s terms what he was doing and why. First time I’ve ever been to one of these. It’s not fixed yet but expecting after the next two that things will be much better. He said I wouldn’t need a stick between my mouth for the pain as a joke but when he was doing it, I kind of felt like I need one.
