isn't it also pretty much accepted that the games are fixed in the NBA?  the NBA has to be the biggest joke league of any popular major sport.

True, Hockey Players are a different breed when it comes to pain tolerance. Hockey players normally get stitches between periods and play like nothing happened.

If it was Baseball they would have had an ambulance drive onto the field and the player would be on the DL for a week.

hmmmm... not so fast on the baseball players there, Rick. They take 95 mile an hour fastballs to the body (and usually just walk it off), foul tips directly to the ankle (again, just a quick walk around the batter’s box then back in there) collisions at home plate (no pads), spikes to the leg at second, running full speed into walls (outfield) or guardrails (foul balls) and they play a grueling 162 game season – many with lagging injuries. They're pretty tough. They suck up their fair share of pain.

Meh. Cramps are debilitating. You'd think that if there was any group that would know that it would be us. How many race reports have we read where someone's race was ruined by cramps?

I agree.  It doesn't matter how "tough" you are if your body just doesn't work.

I'm not arguing that hockey players are not "tougher".  They used to get stitched up ON THE ICE, or get their teeth knocked out and keep playing.  But you can get 20 stiches in the face or lose a tooth and keep running/playing.  But if you calves cramp up and lock?  It's not the pain that keeps you from going, it's the fact they don't work/loosen up to operate...

So all the elite IM'ers that get knocked out on the run at Kona from cramps must be soft too.  Even though some have crashed their bikes, removed 10% of their skin with road rash, broken collar bones or wrists from bike crashes and continued to ride/run.
