I watched "ESPN's 30 for 30" last night about Bo Jackson and it got me to thinking...

Here's the scenario for you guys. You will go back to age:20 (if you're older than that) and you will dominate the sport of your choice in a way that has never been seen before (better than Jordan/Wilt in bball, better than Federer/Sampras in tennis, better than Rice/Montana/Sanders in football).... but only for 10 years... at which point you will suffer a debilitating career-ending injury that will result in you being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of your life (no amount of money will fix this). No movement in your legs at all. Your penor still works though (lulz) and you still have sensation there.

Your 10 years in the sport will be completely injury-free and you'll play every game.

Do you do it?

Not a chance. Unless I can retire at year 9 and not get hurt. But since I doubt that is an option. This is a easy no for me.

No, I'd be content just being the Brian Scalabrine of the sport.

I would love playing the game, especially being the best and becoming a legend, but its not worth crippling myself for the rest of my life after that.

Would anyone change their mind if it was 15 years of domination and walking with a pronounced limp? (can move around slowly but cannot run)

Yeah Id do that one.

Couldn't handle being in a wheelchair and being a punchline.

hmm that's a tough one

on one hand you get the unparallaled fame, money, respect all in your prime years. Plus still being able to retain almost all of it after the injury. You can probably still function quite well

but on the other, wheelchair for rest of your life, not being able to play the game you love, phaggots talking about you in the media and on the internet

I would probably say no. OP would you say yes?

I think knowing before hand that there will be a nasty career ending injury will drive you insane

I dunno TBH... I've obviously never been confined to a wheelchair but I think that life probably wouldn't be that bad considering you'd be filthy rich and famous rather than being on your own in some poverty house.

And I'm also considering how legendary you'd actually be in the sporting world. Just to give you an example.... imagine playing basketball and averaging 45 pts/gm (while shooting 50/40/90).... or being a RB in football and rushing for 2500 yds in a season... or playing hockey and potting 120 goals.

Setting records that would be nearly "unbreakable"... having statues of you erected... I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be tempted.

1st option...no thanks jeff
2nd option...maybe

either way in your 10th year you wouldn't be the same player since the future injury would always be on your mind and you would play very safe and try to avoid it

absolutely, I'd just take up a sport like the ski-chairs, not to mention I'd still have the endless amount of money and fame that chicks would cling to

I've seen plenty of happy people with leg issues, and let's be honest how many of you plan to keep REALLY using your legs for any hobbies after 30 that you couldn't do in a wheelchair?
