      It’s really a shame that he couldn’t avoid a major injury for a few more years…

      Would never have guessed it. You “would” have thought that the hype would have started last spring. Impressive as hell…….

      I wonder if there will be any hype outside of maybe a graphic on the TV screen? Shame. It is a noteworthy thing.
