I learned many years ago from my man Bas that the human body can only tolerate so much punishment before it absolutely crumbles into bolivian. Everyone out there has a certain pinch point where they simply can't take anymore and HAVE to give up.
After spending last weekend in NH with Team Barstool's pond hockey squad, I fear the arms/legs/soul of our dear Chief may be near that breaking point. BANGITY, BANGITY, BANG...
Former Head Coach R.A. said it best, "Oh SHIT, Chief is having a rough day out there!"
And coming from the man himself this wasn't even the worst tumble from Saturday. PRAY for Chief's void-of-all-cartilage joints in the next 24/7 episode coming this week. Guy is a warrior...
As a non-hockey guy and massive coward overall I don't really have any advice to help Chief's survival in Toronto this weekend. But if I did I'd go with these 3 simple steps:
1) DON'T GIVE HIM THE STICK
2) GET A BODY MASSAGE
3) AVOID CLIFFS AT ALL COSTS
