    Saw this question on r/cfb, and it made me curious to see how the CF crowd would respond. Personally, I’d take it for an natty in football

    Edit: on the reddit post there are 2 assumptions. 1) the team wins the title in your lifetime, but you don’t know when; and 2) you don’t know the severity of the wound. It could be a flesh wound or you could limp for the rest of your days

    I'm cool with limping. That means a great parking spot and a good seat.

    Sport of my choice? Maybe. But not for XC or wrestling or something like that.

    As much I would like isu to win a championship, I do enjoy my mobility. Considering I have diabetes, I am at higher risk of being immobile in the future.

    If I am able to live without chronic pain from the injury, yes. Honestly I'd probably take multiple.

    I opened this expecting no, no, no, no.... Quite disturbing to see anything else. But obviously I'm the oddball.

    Not my thigh, but the thigh of other CF posters, sure. Yes, they may be hurt, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make.

    If I could get it within 2-3 years and a flesh wound, 100%.

    Is it like a spectacle for the gunshot? Like a parade and then drop down on top of Hilton from a helicopter with thousands tailgating in the paved lots for the event and then Fred Hoiberg shoots me with the surrendered sidearm of Robert E Lee?

    Or is it like, I will get shot randomly in the thigh while riding down the bike trail at some random time?
