Huh?

I got dragged in to do a consult (and I'm not on call!) today. As per tradition, I stopped in the doctor's lounge to grab a Diet Coke on the way up to the floor.

It was the usual Saturday mid-day crowd of surgeons and hospitalists, some at computers, others watching the Saturday college football games.

As I paused to look at the score, some TV announcer chimed in "Be sure to stay with us at halftime. Many Big State University alumni died serving their country in World War II, and BSU invited them to today's game. Nearly 50 were able to be here, and there will be a special Veterans Day tribute by the marching band."

Hallowe'en was last week?

Reminds me of a comedian making fun of John Madden... "Now here's a guy who, when he puts his contacts in, he can see better." You aren't actually supposed to listen to what they say.

Hmmm. Well, I ran in a Zombie Run today...2 miles while being chased by the living dead! Maybe they went there afterward.

With all the CTE and dementia in former sports players, you have a gold mine awaiting you.

This guy may be the start.

Just sayin'...

Smelly. Getting the exhumation orders must have been a b***h. But the path docs were having a ball looking for anomalies.

Seriously, many thanks to the vets.

Too many people don't listen to what they say thmselves. On the other hand: How many people besides you actually noticed?

The zombie apocalypse has begun!

The university probably made a press release that they had dug up a lot of alumni who were vets that would be attending the game.
