KG’s Blog Post #169 – 2/13/13 2:38am (Going to Have Peripheral Nerve Surgery)
A dear friend of mine recently gave me the name of a doctor in Georgetown who about 6 years go developed this unique way of dealing with nerve pain. Peripheral Nerve Surgery to be exact. In a nutshell, he takes the nerve or nerves who are creating stupid pain and pushes them into the muscle which in turn acts has a prisoner to the pain and doesn’t allow you to feel the pain. In a rare statement of honesty, he tells you that to-date they are about 65% successful in stopping the pain. After sending him my history, he has determined that I’m definitely a candidate for the surgery. Has of this moment I’m simply waiting on him to give me a date to do his thing. I’m trying to not get too excited that for the first time I might be able to live without pain. We’ve done so many procedures to date that haven’t worked, 7 to date. I can only tell you that I’m running out of ability to handle the pain so this is clearly perfect timing. Although in my view way too much time has passed, I refuse to believe that I can’t still do so many good things with the “story” of all that has occurred.
When the pain disappears, I can then move on and be the psychotic and whacky Ken Green who will devote his time to simply trying to help anyone in need. Take care my friends, and for those of you in the north know that winter is almost done and your swings will soon haunt you and you will love every minute of it.

So, who would’ve thought that the first golfer to apologize in 2013 would be Phil Mickelson? Now strike me with a bazooka in the wrong place, but I’m calling foul. Phil has apologized so few times in his life that I refuse to believe that he honestly thought he really had to this time. First of all, he had zero to apologize for. He is always allowed his opinion and he’s correct, so even more reason not to say boo. Step in the Mr. Clean Dude, aka Finchem? Or maybe his manager, but I’m leaning towards the clean guy. Did The Tour try and keep things quiet because PR points are extremely important or did they think that people in the big house don’t really want to invoke our tax break so let’s not give them a reason? Phil’s classic, “I didn’t feel it was appropriate to bring my personal feelings in to the public arena” would really fly. Maybe it did at the press conference – I didn’t see it so please tell me our so called know-it-all reporters went deeper on rebound questions. Phil has opened his mouth many times on issues and brought them right into the public, and I’m ok with that, but not with people being hypocritical.
I’ve learned when we back up our reasons with a lot of talk, we might not really believe it, so we’re trying to justify it with, “I can’t believe what mumbo frog dong I just said.” Phil, you should be pissed that you give that many millions to the dopes and they run our state and country into the hole.
Now, I will talk about more important things, me! Sweet. Well, I’ve started to play some more now that I’m healed, and I’m sorry to say that the new leg, although might be producing more club head speed, is also allowing way to many pathetic shots that I can’t keep in play. Low-snap-hooks-off-the-tee was a shot I thought was with the Dodo bird. I can’t believe some moron cloned those bad birds and let them into my house.
My son has ordered me a new gun, so you criminals be advised I’m shooting any Dodo birds and criminals on sight. The helicopter blade has more give and that’s a good thing we just need to go back and figure out exactly how to set all the angles up where I can get the best results from materials we are using. Will be tricky but I still have time.
