This Afternoon:

Yesterday I played tennis for the first time since August of 1998. I got a knee brace a few weeks ago, so now I can safely play sports again.

Here's an excellent picture (and description) of my knee brace, the GII Extreme. It's pretty huge... :-) Mine is robo-cop silver though, not blue/purple.

I used to play all the time, until I blew out my knee in May of 1995. After that I wasn't able to play until August of 1997, when my knee was finally strong enough to play again. A series of minor but confidence-crushing re-injuries in August 1998 made me stop playing.

Before I left my last job I found out my medical coverage there would pay for 100% of the cost of a knee brace.

Playing tennis rocks. And last night, I got to watch a great tennis match between Agassi (he's been my favourite player since he started playing professionally) and Kafelnikov. Agassi is a true champion, and is truly the greatest tennis player in the world.

Here's a picture of my tennis racquet. I would have linked to the page on Head's site with the info picture on it but their site doesn't work with bookmarks. Not too smart.
