ESPN Thinks Chris Duncan’s a Girl

When Clearly It’s Brad Thompson

I was reading this ESPN article about the Cardinals crowded outfield when I stumbled over this sentence.

Chris Duncan appears ready to reclaim playing time coming off cervical surgery.

Wait, what? Doesn’t one need a cervix to have surgery performed on it?

    The surgery in question here refers to the cervical spine – in other words, the part of the spine that is in the neck.

    While I have no idea what the reason is for Duncan having this surgery, I do know that the two most common problems people have with the cervical spine are herniation (a slipped disk along the spinal cord, which can compress the nerve roots, causing it to hurt like hell) and stenosis ( a narrowing of the spinal canal, which compresses the nerve roots and hurts like hell). As I understand it, cervical stenosis is the more difficult of the two conditions to treat.

    Sorry I can’t offer more info…but at least ya’ll know I’m still paying attention!

    Ah, so the spine is where it is on men. I did not know that. Thanks, KC2HMZ.
