Nashville Predators down the Dallas Stars 5-3

 

Nashville PredatorsDallas, TX – The Nashville Predators defeated the Dallas Stars in a highly entertaining game tonight 5-3.  Pekka Rinne stood tall in net for the Predators to keep Nashville in this one, giving the boys a chance to win it. 

The Predators win the season series against the Stars with the win tonight, in what many feel will be a first round matchup for the Stanley Cup playoffs.  The two teams have already been announced as the feature of the Winter Classic.

Brian Boyle continues to show why the Predators made a trade for him just a couple of weeks ago as he lit the lamp first for the Predators at 10:50 of the opening frame.  It was Boyle’s second goal for the Predators since joining the team and got Nashville the early lead, 1-0.

Dodging the Roadkill: Chronic Pain and Riding Motorcycles

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Chronic pain affects millions of people.  Normal everyday people.  By no fault of our own, and the older we get, stuff just breaks down, or wears out. 

I’ve had two hip replacements, two wrist surgeries, and I deal with rheumatoid arthritis.  I didn’t ask for it, but that’s where I am in my ripe old age.  With titanium in my hips and my joints affected by the arthritis, it can get uncomfortable.

I don’t complain about it because there are MANY people who struggle with more serious issues, even life threatening illnesses and I’m blessed to be relatively healthy at this stage of my life.

But chronic pain is just that.  It’s a PAIN.  

Chronic Pain.
