So I had an appointment with the knee specialist and he gave me the dreaded news that I have ruptured my ACL... Whats worse is I have to postpone the surgery til next year because Im going to NYC for a year...

Pretty shit Im 24 now and Il be 26 before I can play football again and Iv already not been able to play for the past 3 years...

Are you actually Joe Rogan?

Or just trying to emulate his life?

Just trying to emulate his life...

I tend to find a lot of real life applications for his comedy especially on forums... Same goes for George Carlin...

Only just seen this. No way to delay the NYC year to get this sorted first?

On the positive mate, at least you'll be sorted and able to play again (and do other stuff) ... Always try to look on the bright side my good man, it is the only way!

Nah Iv spent 1500 on flights and the visa plus Iv gone through all the other processes I kind of have to go or right off most of the money...
The damage has been done to it the consultant said I wont damage it any further so leaving it for a year wont make any difference...

It is what it is I suppose at 26 it still leaves me with a good few years to play sports... If I get myself to peak fitness I can extend my playing days... MY brother had an ACL injury, he is approaching 34 and he is as fit as he has ever been so there is the positive to look at...

Yup. Only thing to remember mate. You have decades left for more sport, even when footie ends there are loads of other things to do and play.

I have good examples to follow my brother still plays competitively at the highest level available to him...
I also use to play with once or twice a week on 5 aside with a combination of guys my age and then older fellas who were in their late 30s and early 40s... Those boys could still play...
