More about ankle sprains

Ankle sprains range in severity from grade I to grade III. A simpler approach is to divide these injuries into two groups: complicated and uncomplicated. Uncomplicated ankle sprains are treated without surgery. They include injuries not associated with concomitant problems that contraindicate early motion and rehabilitation. Complicated ankle sprains usually require surgical management. Of note, late instability is as common after surgical treatment as after nonoperative treatment of severe ankle ligament injury. Furthermore, late reconstruction is effective in patients initially treated nonoperatively.

In case you were interested, in the classification of ankle sprains, my ankle sprain is a grade - II ligament tear / ankle sprain.

Back at work!!

Finally after a two and half week layoff ... got back to work today. Working from home was fun. Makes me envy the people who do it all round the year and also makes me wonder how on earth do they get work done without a nosy boss hanging over their shoulders.

Now I understand the reason for the existence of the idiot boss mentioned in my other post on this EARTH. If not for him, other skilled labor wouldn't have done their bit of work. And if he too was smart, maybe he wouldn't have got a kick out of doing his "peeping over shoulder" job.

Idiot Boss!!!

Ever had an idiot boss!!! I'm sure if you've worked in Corporate America or to a smaller extent Corporate India for some time, you surely would have had the (dis)pleasure of working under one.

The key to working under one and still enjoying work is to learn to laugh at the boss (behind his back obviously). I used to get really frustrated earlier. Nowadays, work is so much fun.

Me and my friends compete over each other trying to prove that his or her boss is the most idiotic. We even thought about writing a book "101 ways to beat the idiot" and also thought about compiling the quotable quotes by my idiot boss.

Here's an article on the subject worth reading.

Salaam Namaste

What was Saif doing singing Salaam Namaste after fighting all the way to the party with Preity?

Why is Preity unable to walk a few yards without somebody's help and in the immediate next scene is dancing around holding her belly?

What the hell was Abhishek Bacchhan doing in the movie? Was that supposed to be funny?

I'll never have an answer to these questions.

And Javed Jaffrey, I think I'll kill him with my own bare hands if ever I get my hands on him.

What's a Hindi movie without some questions? Otherwise was a pretty watchable movie. Worth the one week downloading effort from http://www.desitorrents.com

My ankle again

Twisted my ankle again. Torn my ligament again. Oops, I did it again.

I remember the last time I did this. I had gone to the extent of telling my friends that I probably won't play cricket again. This was at the time when Cricket was at its fever pitch. No I am not talking about sitting at home and watching cricket. We played Cricket everyday from 9am to 6pm. It was almost like we were professional cricketers. One tournament is over, move on to another one. Oh, that team is in need of a player. Do we have a match on that day? No, then go ahead and play for that team.

But going thru the pain of the swelling and pain of the ankle just not dying down after 6 months and I decided that it was time for my retirement.

Now, 5 years down the line, here I am in the same predicament. Deja Vu. This time I am wiser though. Will give my ankle enough time to heal and then get back to the game I love (Playing .. surely not Watching the Indian team play).

COSARC - Champion Braggers

Just an update from my previous blog.

We went on to loose 4 of the next 5 games of the tournament. No, don't be misled. We didn't win the fifth game. It just so happened that the other team didn't think we even deserved to play them. So they forfeited the game. :-)

Come September, we enter another tournament - this time a 20 over a side game. Played two matches back to back and lost two matches back to back.

No, I am not done yet. The worst part about COSARC * oh yeah, that's the wonder team I've been bragging about * is that if you put in a vote asking if anyone is interested in practice, you'll be lucky if you get a handful of interested players. But you get a team to a BW3 (Buffalo Wild Wings - our usual hang-out place), you'll be amazed by the talk that you hear. You'll probably think, you are with the champions of the Midwest league.
