That game last night was so bad, it almost ruined my Movember vibe. Almost.
Did you know that an estimated 8.7 million men in the US over the age of 20 have diabetes, and that 1/3 of them don't even know it? How exactly does one manage a disease if they don't even know they have it? The only way to help yourself, gentlemen, is to get a checkup. Regular, yearly physicals can help save your life. Read that again. They can help save your life. You looking for a hero? There's no such thing as Batman, and you are really a Special Forces soldier (despite what that game makes you think).
Go get a physical. If something doesn't feel right, go see a doctor. There really is no reason not to. Putting it off is as embarrassing as that performance last night.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are not the worst team in the league - Arctic Ice Hockey - Nope. According to the stats, the Wild are worse. I'm not going to argue stats today. Hell, I won't even be around today. But for the love of everything holy, they've won three games. Three. I really don't care about your Fenwick or your PDO (whatever the hell that is). They've won three games out of 16. They are, indeed, the worst team in hockey.
