The next day as I was explaining to my friend that managing diabetes is a lot like playing cornerback in the NFL, I realized that I was correct in more then a just a few ways. When you play football as a defensive player there is one truth, no matter what you do, or how much you practice, the guy you are...
Watch out for the...pump fake!
I like to think I'm the DQB, looking around the field, looking for bli(n)tzes, avoiding getting sacked, looking for the opening, etc! CB is a good analogy too!
Sure would be nice if the D-football game was on for only 4 hrs/week, 3 months/year !
