I share my company’s size because in August of 2011 I noticed something wasn’t right during a self examination. Being a part time hypochondriac I initially thought the worst, cancer. After my scare I tried to surf the internet to get an idea of what might be causing my uh, condition. Junior Seau death really made me reconsider the sport generally gladiatorial nature. I don get that excited anymore over a big hit.
