Back in August 2011, I had what I would consider to be my first major surgery of my life. It nearly caused me to miss VMworld in Las Vegas, but luckily got the all-clear from the doc to travel just in time and was able to attend.
A little over a month ago, NetApp held tryouts for the company softball team. Seeing as how I missed it last year due to the date I joined the company, I was super-excited to come out and get to play on the diamond again.
Had a great warmup throw-around. Jumped right into shortstop and did some fielding while people hit, and the arm (which I was most worried about) felt great. Still got the cannon.
It came to be my turn to hit, and I took about 5 swings, almost knocked one out, and then the next swing….
WHOA! Something is BURNING HOT in my knee! WTF is that!?
