Stay In The Game

Crouch, tiger - Seventy percent of ACL injuries occur when players are pivoting or landing awkwardly after a jump. Hitting the ground with your knees bent instead of nearly straight greatly reduces the risk, according to a report published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Figure the heatstroke equation - Heatstroke harms many an unwary athlete.

If the number tops 180, exercise indoors, or move to Canada. Tee-hee.
