"Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends." - Revelations 3:20
step that I’ve done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I’m supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that??
I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that
was. Maybe this is how my book
ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me…Then again maybe not! It’s 3:30am, my foot feels like dead weight, my head is spinning from the pain meds and I’m wide awake. Forgive my Venting but what’s the purpose of social media if I won’t bring it to you Real No Image?? Feels good to vent, let it out. To feel as if THIS is the WORST thing EVER! Because After ALL the venting, a real perspective sets in. There are far greater issues/challenges in the world then a torn achilles. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, find the silver lining and get to work with the same belief, same drive and same conviction as ever.
One day, the beginning of a new career journey will commence. Today is NOT that day.
“If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear”. Ive always loved that quote. Thats “mamba mentality” we don’t quit, we don’t cower, we don’t run. We endure and conquer.
I know it’s a long post but I’m Facebook Venting LOL. Maybe now I can actually get some sleep and be excited for surgery tomorrow. First step of a new challenge.
Guess I will be Coach Vino the rest of this season. I have faith in my teammates. They will come thru.
Thank you for all your prayers and support. Much Love Always.

I was asked a question: “Do you believe that the battle of good and bad applies to you?”
My answer: The concept of good and bad is relative. The actions we do everyday are dictated by what we have learned throughout our lives as the concept of bad or good, or right or wrong.
Microvision: Though I feel you do need to take the footbridge to cross the street, if what dictates your actions in life leads you to just jaywalk, then that is the best choice for you. In short, rules and laws, for me, are there to be adhered to. Sadly, rules are merely suggestions for most Filipinos. That neither makes me or everyone else right or wrong.
Macrovision: What do you think about Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Kim Jong Il (and son)? You (and probably most other people in the “free” world) would think they are bad men. But that point of view would only be true here in “your side of the (free) world”. Everyone else on their side see them as good men, heroes, maybe even gods. That does not make any side (theirs or yours) wrong. We all just have different values, beliefs, experiences and realities. If only we all could just finally learn, realize and eventually respect that. ;)
It’s their own frikkin’ language (well, sorta, haha) for cryin’ out loud, and here we are, non-native speakers being better at it than them. I’m not hating. It’s just kinda sad. =/
(And if some of you still don’t get it, the words should be “should have”, “would have”, “could have”. Their contractions are should’ve, would’ve, could’ve, hence Americans saying the “of” part.)
