There's a blog called verywellthen.com that delves into an assortment of subjects with understated flair.
Its author brought his most recent post to my attention and, in return, I want to bring it to your attention.
The blog post is a letter to Joe Nathan.
"Wow. That Tommy John thing is really something. I’m sure Dr. Andrews already told you all this, but I was amazed to learn they take a tendon from another part of your body and loop it into your damaged elbow to stabilize everything."

"I mean, I’m just imaging you coming in and blowing away Pujols on a nasty slider to lock down the 2011 World Series, and I’d be high-fiving my friends at the bar and screaming… SCREAMING!!!… at the top of my lungs, 'That’s my tendon! ' "
You can read the whole thing here ... and then I suggest bookmarking the blog.
