    No stupid questions just stupid answers. So I won't give one here, I'm sure someone has the answer though.

    It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

      Turf Toe

      Good question .... maybe this will help.

      Turf toe describes a sprain of the ball of the foot at the great toe. A sprain means that the ligaments (tissues connecting two bones) are stretched or torn. This injury most commonly affects football athletes playing on artificial turf with "turf shoes." When the athlete tries to stop quickly, the shoe grabs the turf. As the great toe slides over the insole and hits the inside of the shoe, it is sprained.

      The great toe can also be injured when it is forced to extend more than it normally can. For example, turf toe can occur when the athlete is standing on the balls of the feet and another athlete pushes him or her forward, hyperextending the great toe.

      A doctor needs to examine the athlete who may have turf toe. Treatment consists of applying ice, heat, and tape or stiff-soled inserts in the shoe to restrict movement of the great toe. The athlete must follow the prescribed treatment to alleviate this disabling condition and to return to his or her normal level of function.
      Despite all the hype, once you finally get a hammer, you don't hammer nearly as much as you think you will.

          I am sure you are aware that this kind of explanation from a chiefs fan leaves you wide open to all kinds of slams and abuse. I however will leave it alone. Very good Explanation though.

                          I could probably do it . It is much like highway work, but you can't afford delays like I remember on I-25.

                              Not a doctor ...
                              Just a man with a computer and search engine.

                              As for HMOs, I think they were designed to be confusing in order to keep people from seeking medical treatment.
