Guys and gals I think it's time to start working again as far as cappin goes,since the
spring I've done alot of lurking and really haven't been able able to contribute to this
great forum in the way that I would like to,
I went to see my back specialist and he basically told me I'm all through as far as work goes,I have ruptured discs as well as arthritis in my back and surgery wouldn't
be of any help,with this news I've had to make adjustments in my life and now that I've done so I can start focusing on cappin
starting with the CFL and continuing through
to the NFL,NHL and maybe even the NBA,heck I
might go back to cappin horses again which
really is my first love,anyways I appreciate
the terrific work that so many people have put in this forum,the new members and Sonny's
terrific leadership,nows it's time to make some cash,best of luck to everybody.

Hi Joe;
Welcome back. Sorry to hear of your back problems.
You'll have to let us know if your picks were made while on pain medication. haha.
I think CFL will be interesting this year as we seem to have the whole country covered on this forum.
With all the capping time on your hands I'm sure you'll make a nice income to replace the lost wages.
Good luck to you!!
Cheers. Grizz.

Hi Joe:

Sorry to hear about your problems but glad to hear that things are getting better. I'm starting to feel a little better after a bout with throat cancer (kept this ol'big mouth quiet for a bit) Anyhow just wanted to pop in and wish you well. Good Luck with all that cappin' you are planning to do! I'll lurk once in awhile just to see how it is going!

From a selfish standpoint, I'm glad you have the time to cap more now Joe.

From a personal standpoint, I hate to see any friend get injured ... especially the back. They just seem to flare up at the slightest twinge.

Take care and keep moving forward Joe! We're all right behind you rooting for you!!

Joe,
I'm sorry you're stuck with back troubles, I remember you posting a while back about possible surgery. What struck me most about your post is your ability to look to the future and focus on what you can do, rather than cannot do. Your insights last December in the NFL proved invaluable, and I look forward to more gems this season.
Best Wishes,
Glenn

Hey Joe, when did you get return?

Sorry to hear about your back that sounds pretty bad, do you get any therapy? and if so is it helpin?

My dad just ruined his back about three weeks ago, I thought he was done luckily it was just some muscle problems, therapy has helped him and he will be able to return to some light duty work.

Any how I work at a pharmacy and get pretty good discounts on everything, if you need anything, backbrace, obusforme cushioun, whatever let me know and I'll get for you.

Take care and good luck on all your wagers!!

Thanks Daponte for your offer,as far as therapy my doctor told me try to be active
when possible,other then that theres not much
that can be done,I have my good and bad days
but I have to live with this,so now that I know where I stand I will focus on cappin and
trying to live with my physical limitations,
I'm jacked about the upcoming seasons and will really focus on trying to be helpful with injuries and other info for our forum.
Best of luck to you.

Hi Joe... I 'm sorry to hear about the severity of your back problems... I imagine it must feel good (?) to have some clarification on your condition.

Your contributions here Joe are much appreciated... you've single-handedly done alot in helping us understand the ins and outs of hockey. If you need to take time off for yourself you HAVE to do it Joe. There are people that get paid to collect and analyze information, and they don't work nearly as hard as you do Joe. And heaven forbid anyone try and steal your posts... we'll fix them up with a six-pack!

lasvegasles I'm saddened to hear about your battle with throat cancer. That explains your absence -- we missed you and it's great to have you back... even if it's in a limited capacity.

Hang in there guys

I am sorry to here about your back problems. With your positive attitude and great outlook on life, I am sure you will be able to turn this negative into a positive.
We are all looking forward to the return of our of our "Capptain Joe". Many of the boys are missing that loss of income since the Hockey season ended.
I look forward to reading your posts. Maybe I could hook up with you at the track sometime, seeing as I go there myself on occasion. We used to own a horse once, and I loved every minute of it .
Anyway, take it easy Joe, and good luck with things!! ,,,,Rawk

Sorry to hear about your back problems Joe. I know wht you are going through. I have been living with a back problem for 11 years now. It's no fun as I have my good days and my bad days.
Anyhow looking forward to your picks in the future. Like you I'm waiting for the Football and especially hockey season to begin.
Best of Luck.
