"When will he be back"
"What is the status off"
"This game will be affected because the injury of"
"What's the deal?"
What I haven't heard too often?
"Are you ok?"
"How's your heart?"
"Is there anything I can do?"
Too many times, I've noticed when someone has a injury, instead of being considerate and compassionate, I've noticed more people being rude, intrusive, and inconsiderate. Especially in the sports world. And somewhat in the entertainment industry (In my personal experience it depends on what circles you run in). Do they think talking about it is going to speed up the recovery process? Or do they expect you to go into it not recovered, and further damage yourself? It's more about how much money is made or what someone can do for you. Or winning games.
Maybe it's the people who I've hung out who are rude.
When you are hurt, injured, received a cancer diagnosis, or in pain, you don't need inconsiderate people in your life. Or worst, people that try to make you feel bad.
I recently wrote an article about this about my personal experiences with this being in the music industry. And in my town our quarterback is injured with a shoulder injury. So that's the main topic everyone is talking about back in Indianapolis.
In my opinion if we were winning more often or had a better record (6-0, 5-1, etc) then people wouldn't be talking as much.
Despite everyone and their momma putting in their 2 cents?
I find my quarterback Andrew Luck is the being the best example. Despite people talking and hackling him, he's remaining silent. He's calm and cool as a cucumber on the sidelines during Colts games. He's staying out of the spotlight. He's not talking with the media. He didn't respond when trade rumors started (I do think his agent did).
#1 thing you can do when your recovering from something? Sometimes it's best to turn off the TV and turn off the world. Have supportive people in your life that will defend you. Take the time you need to heal. Ignore people's judgements and opinions. And we will see you when you get back.
I think the next time I have something medical happen, I'll communicate once then turn off my phone. Geez.
It makes no sense for people to annoy you when you feel the weight of a medical crisis on your shoulder.
Original article I was going to write in place of this is below. It's been sitting in my drafts for a long time (like September of last year, so I decided to dig it out and recreate the whole article in general).
Can I Bring My Kid To The NFL Game Without A Ticket?
According to blog.ticketcity.com, if you have a kid under six and you are going to a Saint’s game, no you don’t need to buy a ticket.
Depending on which NFL game you are attending, you will need to check that particular team and stadium’s policy.
Families bringing children to NFL games are frequently unsure if they are required to purchase tickets for their children, or if they will be allowed free admittance into the stadium. There is no master child ticket policy that governs all NFL teams, meaning that each individual team and stadium sets their own child ticket policies. For most teams, there is a simple age requirement, while others have restrictions on height, and some require that all children entering the stadium have a valid ticket. We have put together the child ticket policies for every NFL team, so you know exactly what to expect when you arrive at the stadium.
Free admittance for children under 6 (have not reached their 6th birthday):
- New Orleans Saints
Free admittance for children under 2 years old (have not reached their 2nd
Free admittance for children under 1 year old (have not reached their 1st birthday):
- Carolina Panthers
- Dallas Cowboys
Free admittance for children based on height:
- Minnesota Vikings — Under 36 inches tall
- New York Giants — Under 35 inches tall
- New York Jets — Under 34 inches tall
- Jacksonville Jaguars — Under 34 inches tall
- Atlanta Falcons — Under 33 inches tall
- Chicago Bears — Under 32 inches tall
No Free Child Admittance:
- Indianapolis Colts
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- Green Bay Packers
- New England Patriots
- Philadelphia Eagles
- Washington Redskins
The New Orleans Saints have by far the most generous child ticket policy, allowing families to bring children up to 5 years old into the SuperDome without having to buy them a ticket. On the flip side, 6 NFL teams, including the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, require that all children, even infants, have a ticket to enter the stadium. Parents should remember that children admitted free to NFL games will not have access to their own seat, and will have to sit on a parent or guardians lap during the game. It is always a good idea to have proof of your child’s age with you at the gate, in the off chance that the gate attendant asks to see it before allowing your child to enter the stadium.
