I will turn 40 this year. That combined with the fact that I am not in the best physical condition has made it imperative that I use Ibuprofen before playing my regular basketball game. Well, I should take it before playing.

Today I was in a rush to get dressed and upstairs to play before I realized that the Ibuprofen was still in my locker, so I played without my regular dose of 600 mg. Ankles are funny things; I don’t think they’re supposed to feel like tennis balls, swollen knobs with feet coming out the other side.
