I’ve never been much of an athlete, but I do know a few guys who were. Emphasis on the “were”. This is what makes it so difficult for me to get Z into athletics. There are no real ‘jockish’ role models in her life. I suppose the closest would be our friend Thomas. He tore up his knees playing Hockey (of all things) while in high school in Texas. I didn’t even know they played hockey in Texas until I met Thomas, but I guess not much surprises me anymore. But that’s not the point of this story…

The point is that Thomas used to play hockey. These days the only sports he plays require only the movement of his thumbs on a PS2 controller. I tried to recruit him, as a former jock, to help Z and I get more exercise but met a brick wall of resistance when it came to anything more intense then air hockey. When pressed for details he shared the tale of the “big game”. He rescued the puck from behind the net and charged forward, checking and dodging opponents all the way down the ice, drew back his stick for the winning slap shot and … fell … flat on his face. At least that’s the story he told… Pressing further, the truth came out that he tore up his knee stepping onto the ice for practice one afternoon. Who ever said truth was more exciting then fiction. But that’s not the point of this story…

Freeze It Gel is the point of this story…

You see, if Thomas had a free years supply of Freeze It then Z and I would actually have an athletic friend to help us get into shape ourselves. Then, perhaps, we could have our own ‘old sports injury’ stories that might actually be more compelling then Thomas’ 😈 And, since we already know that Freeze It helps relieve muscle and joint pain in addition to arthritis pain, we’d be able to tell those stories while continuing to participate in sports as well!
