A very special substitute edition here. We went all off the grid. We went totally off the grid. We where totally planning to do the taste test for dill pickle potato chips. But instead we have sweet potato tortilla chips. And we have a very special guest, Ian Bosman. Hi… Thank you. That’s classy. He has flown all the way in from Hope to tell us all about his ACL recovery and how it’s going. … yeah pretty much… Thanks. Wow! You really suck at this. He is on it today. You are probably the worst guest we have had to date. No no, no no, you are by far the worst guest we have had to date and you are only the second. So. That’s not really good competition though, if he has to compete with Dr. Mike. That’s true. I’m not a doctor, that’s unfair. Dr. Mike is crushing you.
Anyway, we are doing the Food Should Taste Good Brand Sweet Potato Tortilla chip and we are going to discuss ACL recovery. Ian is now 16 months post surgery? Probably closer to 13 months, August 1st
. It is now October. So that would make it 14 months. Djimmer is something like 3 years post ACL surgery. And I am still struggling. And I am ACL deficient. Which means I don’t have an ACL. Well not a complete ACL anymore. Which proves that you really don’t need one. Yeah, my knee does hurt a lot today. I will come out and say that. If all you do is cycle and struggle with pain. Yeah, cause I am not allowed to do anything exciting. So anyway, that’s fine.
Let’s talk about ACL. ACL injuries happen incredible frequently now. There is something called the ACL project, which is pretty interesting. They track the number of ACL injuries. This year alone in the NFL they are up to 37 ACL tears. Which is classic. Which is pretty impressive. They have narrowed it down and found that there is one more ACL tear per year on artificial surfaces vs grass surfaces. Which is a pretty interesting statistic I think. Generally we are seeing them way way way more often now then we use to see them.
