And I'm not talkin about that sweet show on Bravo!
Hello Mets fans. VZ here, reporting live from my bed at Flushing Medical Center. I'll be the first to admit, this has gotta be one of the worst cases of tennis elbow, ever. It started acting up during a few matches at the Hugo Chavez Open right before spring training. Doubt most of you knew I was an avid tennis player. Gotta stay in shape during the off season. I was pretty good in that tourney. My serves were up near 100mph. Sent one of the ball boys home with a black eye. Anyway, the pain seemed to die down after that and I was good to go for the first few weeks of the season. I felt something early Saturday morning but thought I could play through it. After I struckout Andruw "They didn't teach me how to spell Andrew in the Netherlands" Jones, I figured I should get a second opinion. When I got to the locker room, my elbow was the size of a watermelon. Jose threw up in his glove. I didnt even know he had one.
Official word is not good. The tendon in my elbow is shot and I'm done for the year. Just when I was getting back on track. Stay tuned folks, I dont know how this injury will affect my ability to continue with this blog. I dont want to get carpal tunnel from all the typing. Counting my $3 million for the year already took quite a toll on the old digits.
