Advice, Investments, News, Risk Profiling
Do not let anyone try and tell you that soccer isn’t a contact sport. This past weekend I was injured while playing the game in our yard with my two young sons - Dylan, 12, and Max, 9. Max and I collided going for a loose ball. For a 9 year-old, Max is a pretty sturdy kid, let me tell you. As Max and I were lying on the ground in agony, Dylan gathered the ball, dribbled to the net and scored, which sealed his victory. In a moment of triumph Dylan proudly exclaimed “I won! I won!” Though it was obvious that Max and I were suffering from a great deal of pain, Dylan seemed rather oblivious to it all. He was just glad that he won. As it turned out, Max was fine, but I was not so lucky. I broke a rib. It is no fun getting old.
