I wonder if he could pass a baseball physical considering it isn't a contact sport.


I bet with the way his leg is, he can't do the duck walk. Most major league teams require this when doing a physical.

If he isn't able to play baseball, this will be one of the saddest examples of lost talent I've ever seen. I feel really bad for him. He is amoung the top two sport athletes in LSU history.

I wish Chad would go visit Rocky Bleier if he has not already.

quote:

On August 20, while on patrol in Heip Duc, Bleier was wounded in the left thigh by a rifle bullet when his platoon was ambushed in a rice paddy. While down, an enemy grenade landed nearby after bouncing off a fellow soldier, sending shrapnel into his lower right leg.


quote:

One year after being wounded, Bleier reported to Steelers training camp. Upon his return, he couldn't walk without being in pain, and weighed only 180 pounds (82 kg). He spent two full years trying to regain a spot on the active roster, and was even waived on two occasions. But Bleier never gave up, and said that he worked hard so that "some time in the future you didn't have to ask yourself 'what if?'".


quote:

In addition to being a great lead blocker, Bleier was the second of the Steelers' rushing weapons (Franco Harris was the primary back), but was effective nonetheless at both blocking and rushing. In 1976, both Harris and Bleier rushed for over 1,000 yards, making this the second NFL team to accomplish this feat, after Mercury Morris and Larry Csonka of the 1972 Miami Dolphins.
Bleier played in the first four Steeler Super Bowl victories, and caught the touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw that gave Pittsburgh a lead it would never surrender in Super Bowl XIII.
Bleier retired after the 1980 season with 3,865 rushing yards, 136 receptions for 1,294 yards, and 25 touchdowns. At the time of his retirement, he was the Steelers fourth all-time leading rusher.

I seriously doubt that.

Whatever Chad Decides to do, he will succeed. He has the will power of superman. He was a blessing to LSU and will be one where ever he goes. Thanks Chad and God bless.

Left handed pitcher with a left leg injury is not a good thing. His left leg is his drive leg and with the injury he had to that leg I would be suprised if he could pitch again.

untimely car accident


I don't disagree with your statement but I don't know of any car accidents that are timely (unless you don't want to get wherever it is that you are going.)
