This isn’t how I wanted to spend my Tuesday night. It’s enough that I was watching the Blackhawks only to see Patrick Kane get hurt. It looks like a shoulder injury for him. Then, about an hour or two later, I find out that Derrick Rose is out for the season. Great.
A reader who goes by “Nikola Drops” chimed in with a comment in the previous post on here. He already predicted that I was going to write about how this is on ThomASS. While this injury isn’t on him, directly. However, I will say that could have been caused from his previous injuries. It all started with the ACL tear three years ago, in my opinion.
I hate making comparisons or analogies, but I will here. With Rose, first, it was the ACL. Then, it’s a meniscus tear. Then another one. I compare this to an old car. In college, I drove an ’83 Cavalier. The first problem was a coolant fan relay and that lead to my car overheating. About three weeks later, the car began shaking. I needed to replace the alternator. Later, the serpentine belt. You get the point. At the end, the transmission fucked up. I ended up junking it for $50.
Derrick Rose is my 1983 Chevy Cavalier.
