Everything, from sports, to politics. Just Things I find relevant to society today.
So lets take about asthma. Lots and lots of kids have it. Some being sports induced asthma, which to me is really bullshit. And actual legit asthma where your bronchial’s are constricted and not as much oxygen gets through your body. Resulting in difficulty breathing, particularly when being active.
Now “sports induced asthma” is supposedly when that you after a certain period of time suddenly run out of breath and have to take a break and use an inhaler. You know what that sounds like to me? You being fucking out of shape. Gee its the first time you’ve ran a long distance for about three months, no shit you’re not going to be able to do it in a great time. Your body isn’t used to that amount of exertion, so the lungs aren’t strong enough to support the oxygen you need. So personally sports induced asthma is a load of shit if you ask me.
Now lets get to real asthma. Now don’t think I have no idea about asthma, I was born with it and was cleared of it just last November. So I dealt with it for 17 years. Not just regular asthma either no. It got so bad where in 7th grade I started having to get shots once a week so I could simply breathe, that ended when I was cleared of asthma back in November. Now on top of that I had a prescription pill, plus two inhalers. One was an emergency inhaler, the other just a presctiption preventative one. I dealt with nasal rinses and the whole 9 yards for this shit all right? so I know what the fuck I am talking about here!
Now people that say “Oh I can’t run, lift, or really do any exercise because I have asthma.” FUCK YOU PEOPLE!! I can almost guarantee I most likely had asthma worse than you. Not only did I have severe asthma where I shouldn’t have ever played sports. Guess what sports I do play? Ice hockey, the most physically demanding sport on the planet (sorry football players, you couldn’t keep up with us if you tried). And soccer, that shit requires a lot of cardio!! On top of that any night I don’t work I run 3.2 miles, in a little under 30 minutes. And I recently started INSANITY. If you don’t know what that is, google it and be impressed.
Along with basic lifting in the gym and some tennis whenever I can, I like to say I keep myself in damn good shape (It’s pretty great actually). Now here’s the last factor that gives me the one-up on you. I live at 7,000 feet ABOVE sea level, that means a shit ton less oxygen because of the high altitude.
So needless to say I keep in great shape, while having been a severe asthmatic for 17 years and living in high altitude, I could have easily stopped playing all sports and said I can’t because I have asthma. No one would have blamed me either.
But to me, that’s the easy way out.
Why use it as a crutch?
To get to where I am in sports, starting for both hockey and soccer and often playing more than other players. It wasn’t given to me, I have had to put in nearly twice as much work and effort, simply to be at the same level as the others, not any higher or lower.
Trust me it frustrates me to know that I put in that much extra work, only to still be at the same level as everyone else. But that is not the point!!!
The point is that asthma is not a crutch!!
Why limit yourself??
The minute you say that you can’t do something because of asthma, well shit have you even tried? And not once or twice. But an honest effort, where maybe its training for a 5k. Don’t expect to be perfect the first time out, but don’t quit after 3 days and you haven’t made any significant improvements. IT TAKES TIME!!!
Another thing isn’t just fixing your physical routine, you got to change what you eat! I am not saying go on a diet, just watch what you eat. I haven’t had any fastfood for a little over two months and I avoid it as much as possible. Yes I indulge every now and then and will grab an ice cream cone or whatever, but that is so far in between it does no real damage. Its good to spoil yourself at times.
Using asthma as a crutch to be lazy is like blaming fast food for obesity. Its not their fault! Its yours for choosing to eat there. If you have asthma and want to be lazy more power to you, but when someone asks you why you don’t exercise more and you say its because you have asthma. FUCK YOU! Thats a load of shit.
I could do it, why can’t you? I am not saying I am better than you, anyone can do what I do, it just takes a dedication and commitment to get where you want to be! It all depends on your motivation, don’t use asthma as a crutch for hindering your physical activity…..if anything use it as motivation to prove that you can do what you want with it as a hinderance!

True facts of the past few years.
The decline is pretty apparent to me, but Obama has found ways to slow it down and if he is re-elected then I believe he will figure shit out and reverse.
And no the remarks I made are my own experiences, if you have a valid reasoning to oppose Obama please let me fucking see them. Since you seemed to point out that I’m apparently a moron and a fucking idiot. So show me facts that show that then.
I would love to hear it. Besides if you even read the rest of the post you’d understand why I said that most people I do talk to can’t make any valid argument as to why they don’t like Obama.
The problem isn’t people like me that make the remarks of other people I have heard and gained national attention but more people like you, who hide behind the face of anonymity and then immediately haul off and insult my intelligence instead of making a REASONABLE ARGUMENT.
Here is an article about a hockey hit. Something I know a lot about. Now I understand it was a HUGE hit and that the kid who received the hit was out of school for 5 weeks and is still suffering from concussion like symptoms. You know what? That is fucking hockey. There was no criminal intent, so I don’t believe the defendant will really face any trouble, but its still bullshit that the parents insist on taking it to court because they didn’t receive an apology. WHAT THE FUCK? Remember my other post? About how America is a bunch of people with a toddler mentality, that is exactly what this fucking is! Yeah it is unfortunate he received a concussion and missed the last two weeks of his season, yeah it isn’t fun. I know about missing a season.
When I was in 7th grade I was on a breakaway and a player tripped me as I went by him, well my momentum carried me so hard into the boards I had a deep bone contusion in my ankle that left me in physical therapy for 8 months. Now that was in the 2nd game of our season, so I missed the last 5 months of that year.
Did I pursue criminal charges? No I said well shit happens, life goes on. Did I expect an apology? No because shit happens. Oh well. I broke a kids collarbone one game, did I apologize? Nope. Because I didn’t mean to break it, it just did off a clean hit.
Hockey is a physical sport, and as a parent if you can’t handle your kid maybe getting a little bruised up and possibly a concussion that’s the risk he takes and you must accept. So to anyone who thinks the player should face criminal charges, get the fuck over yourselves.
See that link? Now look at the comments. See the fucking idiots saying that Obama’s comment about picking a superior gene pool is a Hitler Puritan mind set. Seriously? Why is it everything has to be a fucking controversy. Maybe he was just trying to have some fun. I don’t think its some stupid controversy like several of the people commenting do believe. Maybe it was just a little joke at the old joke that women are smarter than men, and men should marry someone with better genetics. Maybe the problem with America is everyone is so fucking uptight. Seriously what the fuck was it that crawled up our assholes to make everything suck a big fucking deal. Shit I can’t accidentally bump into someone without them suddenly thinking I assaulted them. Fuck off. Maybe I tripped on something and fell forward, my fucking mistake I am not trying to steal your wallet. America is full of fucking pussies. I know it is hard to hear that, but it’s what America has become. A bunch of prepubescent children threatening to tell our parents that you said a bad word. Its fucking no wonder our country is in the shitter. We have no hope to continue functioning much longer until we lose our self-centered selfish attitudes. No I am not 100% innocent of it, but fucking-a lighten the fuck up people and get over your self. Why is it there is a goddamn lawsuit because your coffee was a little too hot and you burned your tongue. Fuck off. America is a bunch of self centered people with the mindset of a toddler. Yet when our parent (the government for those that can’t figure out this metaphor) disciplines us, we turn into rebellious teenagers that think because we smoke some weed we are fucking bad-ass. Sorry weed doesn’t make you cool, smoke it for a real reason. America is a bunch of toddlers then when something doesn’t go our way we throw a little hissy fit and cry until someone gives us attention. No wonder people hate us. Because Americans hate each other.
