There's No Escape

“…he’s [Frank Gore, 49ers running back] having a conversation with his mother that he’s had everyday of his life; and this will continue even though, she’s passed away at the tender age of 46, because of, kidney failure…”
~Anonymous NFL Announcer

And I thought football was safe. At the tender age of 22, I can feel my kidneys failing as we speak.

Yeah, that Frank Gore thing is pretty heavy. On the bright side, it's 2pm EST and he's already scored a touchdown. On the other hand, the 49ers are losing. I say pass the ball to Arnez Battle, Alex!

Well I say fuck the 9ers!

I'm the one person in Texas who doesn't give a flying fuck about the Dallas Cowboys. Baseball's my game. The other sports are too flashy and there are too many prima donnas. In baseball if you do something like spike the ball or do a dance in the endzone, your ribcage can say hello to Mr. 95 MPH Fastball. Now THAT is a sport.

That said, I feel bad for that dude losing his mom. And Leila, your kidneys are not failing.

Baseball? The Dallas Cowboys? Where in the world did all of this come from? I thought we were talking about Frank Gore and/or the San Francisco 49ers. And remember, if you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair. Since we're going to get all random and shit.

No flame.

Damn you Leila! I read your post and now I'm suffering from kidney failure too. Acute or chronic? I still have yet to diagnose that, but I am leaning towards chronic.
Ugh. Such is life. Did I mention it often has no symptoms and is hard to diagnose? Hmmpf. Off to plot how I will get the dr. to actually TEST me for it! ;)

Damn you back! I had no idea kidney failure had no symptoms and that it’s hard to diagnose! I’m surely dying of it now!

Feeling a bit testy, are we? And while we’re getting all random, fuck the Broncos too!

My favorite thing about baseball is there’s no cheerleaders. And after Nikole’s comment, my kidneys are definitely failing.

Eh, football just irritates me. My post may have seemed random to you, but believe me there's method to the madness. Long story.
