What we share with Peyton Manning

Sadly, it's not his paycheck. But, today being the start of the NFL season, and Peyton being one of the biggest fishes in the pond, the big news is the fact that he is out for the foreseeable future due to having yet another neck surgery. Why neck surgery? A crippling injury, no doubt? Pounded by some 300-lb. defensive beast into the ground and playing with smashed vertebra, perhaps?

Nope. He has what we have: rotting neck bones that lead to false pain and numbness in his neck, shoulders, back, and extremities.  Except he's Peyton Manning and they cannot wait to operate on him with the latest techniques to make him feel all better.   So, Pop, I don't know if this is what they would do to you, but if so, it seems to work for Peyton! At least we'll see. Wish I had an NFL medical plan....
