Deskitis

Steveos Knee
My new excuse to go riding more...
I have Deskitis. Not kidding. Just returned from getting a 5-inch needle stuck in my knee so I can better cope with sitting in my chair and typing all day. Sound like a load of BS to you? Me too. But I'm going to roll with it. Let me explain…

A couple years back I tore my ACL riding motocross – just like all my other injuries. I had it fixed and for the year following everything was fine and dandy. Until the last month. I noticed the longer I sat in one place the more pain I was feeling from the good ol’ right knee, especially when I was at my desk working for the grueling long hours it takes to be a moto-journalist. Right… Anyhow, as for when I’m riding and up walking around, totally fine. It only locks up when I’m sitting for long periods of time. As it turns out I have scar tissue building up from the surgery and a bone chip from… well, me being a goon doing something, I’m sure. Wonderful. That’s exactly the kind of news you want to get at 8:00 a.m. on a Monday morning.

So, first course of action was a massive needle stuck in my knee and a cortisone shot. While the shot hurt like hell, my knee does already feel better. But if this wears off and doesn’t work I may have to go back under the knife and get my knee scoped. All this so I can sit at my desk and work? So, like I said, it looks like I may have the first legit case of Deskitis I know of.

Looks like I better get up and go riding – 100%, totally, completely for medical reasons, of course. Dr. Graham said so…

Easy on the Haterade, man. Got to stop drinking that stuff so much brotha. Quick updates like this are what blogging is all about. Had I posted this under "News", now that would be a different story. Anyhow, you may now resume your bad day...

Steve, you call yourself a "moto-journalist"?? It seems like a lot of your pieces are about yourself and how hardcore you are. Really Steve no one cares about your knee. Instead of trying to pass this filler as news, try to get us an update on the Spies rumors.
