“Beset by injuries ranging from a lacerated kidney, to a torn labrum in his shoulder requiring surgery, to more recent calf and ankle problems, Luck missed half of the 2015 season and all of 2017. Still, he returned last year to play the best football of his career … which is why it was such a shock on Saturday night to learn that Luck, not yet 30 years old, was retiring from football.” The Ringer: Andrew Luck and the Afterburn of Early Retirement. (Colts fans booing Andrew Luck as he walked off the field and away from a life of constant pain is a perfect metaphor for the empathy-free imbeciles we’ve become in the social media age. I guarantee you one thing: No one who has ever suffered severe chronic pain criticized Andrew Luck.)
