The Dangers of Racquetball

As you probably know I have been playing racquetball with my nephew. It has been a lot of fun. But it had also reminded me that I am getting older. Between my "racquetball shoulder," pulling a glut, and my tender ankle, I am wondering if I am up to this. I'm hoping they will all go away as I play more. All of these have been self inflicted injuries but on Saturday I received my second direct racquetball to the body. The previous week my nephew smacked me in the arm with the ball. I had a nice bruise from that one. This time he slammed the ball into my side. When I showered this morning, this is what I noticed. Maybe it would help if I wasn't such a large target!
