Only sport-related injury I ever had was a deep cut to a finger done by the propeller on a radio controlled model airplane. On cold days that finger is the first to get cold.

After the knee surgery at age 40 the doc told me "no running for you". The knee injury came from playing with the dog.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

Okay, true confessions: I broke all my bones falling on the ice in my driveway a couple of times. Never broke anything on the field or the rink.

The cartilage damage to the knees is another matter...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

For years, I rode horses. Once in a gallop, my body shifted and to the passerby I probably looked like I was doing some fancy trick. I didn't fall off, but every muscle in my body ached for days.

I develped a herniated disc and this malady got worse over the years. I try to convince myself that it was due to other means, but I'm pretty sure it was due to riding. Riding horses was my greatest pleasure...I miss it so much.
There's no need to complicate, our time is short..

Our kid rode dressage for over three years, and during that time I never met a single ER'd equestrian...

Basketball is NOT a straight-line sport, either, and I have a mild knee sprain to prove it.........

Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)
