      David, I feel bad that you have that going on. I had a shoulder issue once and it did go away eventually so I hope you get that relief soon. Once the pain goes away, strengthen that all up and use a foam roller or lacrosse ball to keep that soft tissue flexible and free up the adhesions.

      Hopefully lots of carb loading will follow, too. :) Wonder if a quick trip to a chiropractor might help the shoulder?
