Ladies and gentlemen, here is this week’s Top Ten list!
This Week’s Category: Top Ten Sports-Related Physical Ailments
Today marks the “official” beginning of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (those First Four games don’t count). This magical time of the year is commonly referred to as March Madness, but if you’re not a sports fan, doesn’t that sound like it could be a disease of some kind? Something you would pick up on a trip to some foreign country? It sounds like something we should be spending billions of government dollars to find a cure for. So here now, we have ten other sports-related phrases that could be mistaken for serious physical ailments. And, as always, we ask you to please consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms.
