Amen.

Two things I'll never forget about the 2009 season: The top three fighting for the top spot and Ryan Dirteater.

This is from Austin Meier:

"Ryan and I got home today from mohegan. He will have surgery next Wednesday. It tore his ACL, PCL, and MCL. and also dislocated his knee. Tandy said it is one of the worst injuries you can have. Tandy also said he will be out 8 months to a year. He was in better spirits today but it was really setting in today just how long he might be out. Thanks for the prayers for my little traveling partner. It means alot and I'll keep you'll posted as he comes along after surgery."

"Little traveling partner" aww... :)

I wondered when the full impact of it would hit him. He's going to need a lot of emotional and mental strength for this recovery as well as physical. Youth will work for him physically, but give him a hard time for the other two.

What worries me (and what I'm sure is in the backs of a lot of your minds) is that he may not be able to come back at all. In retrospect, I think he may have come back too soon from the last injury and that probably will weigh on him too. I just hate this.

Yeah, I've worried about him not being able to come back at all. I really hope that the people in his life, as well as Tandy, keep him from coming back too soon the next time.

Shannon, thanks for the update on Ryan. Definitely sending good thoughts his way.

Brendon posted a picture of Ryan the day after the accident. Although it was nice to see him standing, with crutches :-( and smiling, it still broke my heart. I'm so GLAD he won round 3! Before I knew about the wreck, I was imagining him down on one knee doing his "bow and arrow" celebration.

His surgery is today.... My heart goes out to him.

I second, third, fourth, whatever all of your damns! While I want whatever is best for him, this year has been horrendous and I'd hate to think it means he might not be back...
