This video, I think, captures the meaning of the word ‘scrappy’ perfectly. You gotta love tons of guys piecing together one of the most amazing/ridiculous plays in football of all time.

It was an accident. It happened so suddenly, and it changed my life forever. Oh, the trauma! Oh, the despair! I broke a toe!

That’s right. On Sunday, October 21st at 7:24pm, I broke the next to smallest toe on my left foot. I have whined, limped, and whimpered for days. This made me curious: Are guys really tougher than girls? It could just be that I am a huge weenie, but breaking a toe hurt BIG TIME! I was seriously worthless for a considerable amount of time. Yet women walk the planet for nine months with another human being growing in side of them and then go through hours of intense labor and delivery, and are chipper and going to concerts, working out, and working in like 36 hours. Men, if I am any indicator as to the physical rigor of our gender, and I may not be, we need to toughen up if we’re going to fulfill our God given call to lead, provide for, and protect the women in our lives. As it stands now, they are in big trouble! So, guys, share your thoughts. Also, what are some hilarious injuries you have suffered? What have been some hilarious reponses to injuries (good chance to cultivate humility there)? What about serious injuries?

Hey, it’s Fat Jon…yes I’m still alive in case you were wondering. Do you guys ever listen to Al Mohler’s radio program? I subscribe to it as a podcast and I really benefit from Dr. Mohler’s biblical perspective on current events. Mohler’s especially strong on biblical masculinity; he challenges me and I’m sure he will challenge you as well. Check out his podcast sometime.
