Roczen literally destroyed his arm (while racing) but returned to racing and has been in the champions contention ever since.

That's quite a filet, looks like what they do to cadavers

Actually came back from this gruesome one and got hurt almost as bad again, so twice.

Learn golf, the fundamentals of golf by Ben Hogan. GREAT BOOK . My golf phase

THIS guy...

In the crash in February 1949 Hogan threw himself across the legs of his wife Valerie to protect her. His injuries were a double-fracture of the pelvis, a fractured collarbone, fractured left ankle, chipped ribs and near fatal blood clots. A surgeon was flown from New Orleans by US Air Force plane to save his life.Jun 14, 2013

Ben Hogan Golf's Greatest Comeback. Tiger Woods said this week ahead of The Masters that Ben Hogan's comeback was the greatest in sports history. ... The fact thatBen Hogan even played in the 1950 US Open at Merion is incredible, as 16 months earlier he almost died in a car crash. That he won is beyond belief.Apr 5, 2018

At the back of the pack and out of the dust
Don't forget Robert Dunlop.
And if we're including yachting, we might include Bernard Moitessier who decided that sailing was more fun than winning the Sunday Time Golden Globe solo around the world race and turned east after rounding the Horn and headed to Tahiti.


And for me, golf is another game where the biggest injury threat is to the liver.

This was interesting what went on behind the scenes of the masters tournament on Sunday in Georga

The day before in TX, Saturday ,saw where there was a ef 3 tornado in Franklin Texas that tore up jack and even killed 2 I think. This is going to be a bad spring with the constant el Nino flow from the pacific.

Dear viewers who sent death threats, I'm sorry...you have THE DUMB.
There is no cure or treatment.
Please have some free condoms, no they are not chewing gum.
Please, please take the stairs as you leave, carefully.:doh::doh::doh:

Yea, at some point we're going to have to take this death threat nonsense seriously. Don't like some politician... send them a death threat, don't like somebody's post... dox them and send them a death threat, cut some guy off and he clearly says something to his steering wheel... raise your gun and send him a death threat. Geez threaten a meteorologist for explaining severe weather, gutless.

makes me wonder if animals have more sense.
Or that other saying... The more I get to know people, the more I love my dog! Of course animals have more sense!

Seriously though, I see this as a consequence of the continued breakdown of community groups.
I know most of my neighbors, if not by name then by sight, and they know me.
That used to be normal but now it's considered unusual at least and downright weird in many places.
Online anonymity encourages people to be idiots, where they wouldn't have the courage/idiocy to say that in front of others IRL. (not twice anyway)
Like the brainiacs who trolled/shamed the pregnant weather woman for her belly being in the way of them seeing the map.
Any tiny perceived inconvenience to their life and enjoyment is grounds for the most vitriolic and hateful diatribes they can come up with.
Because they perceive no consequence (to them) for their actions, they feel immune and free to say whatever.
I don't have the skills or the time but if I could hit them with some ransomware....
Maybe if I could borrow Thanos' glove for a few minutes...

Agree, we all need to find a happy medium . TWT is that happy medium , personal contact with real world experiences and the best of high tech communications. There's hope for us yet.
