How do you help a choking man?

This might help the Yankees.

1 Ask A-Rod stand if he or she(he does wear makeup, it can be confusing) is sitting.

2 Place yourself slightly behind A-Rod.

3 Assure A-Rod that you know the Heimlich maneuver and are going to help.

4 Place your arms around A-Rod's waist.

5 Make a fist with one hand and place your thumb toward A-Rod, just above his or her belly button.

6 Grab your fist with your other hand.

7 Deliver five upward squeeze-thrusts into the abdomen.

8 Make each squeeze-thrust strong enough to dislodge a foreign body.

9 Understand that your thrusts make the diaphragm move air out of A-Rod's lungs, creating a kind of artificial cough.

10 Keep a firm grip on A-Rod, since he or she can lose consciousness and fall to the ground if the Heimlich maneuver is not effective.

11 Repeat the Heimlich maneuver until A-Rod stops choking.




He'll be OK once he puts on a RED SOX uniform.

Do my beloved RED SOX really want him, if he can't produce in October?

I know it's premature, but...


The Sox are up 2-0,

and the Skanks are 0-2.

Things are good tonight.

If the Rangers was my local team, I'd hate it too.

The Red Sox vs. the Yankees, it's the best rivalry of any sport.

No matter who he plays for, the Texas Rangers, once the plaything of GW Bush, are still paying his choking arse.

Just took a first aid course at work... apparently it is now no longer called the Heimlich maneuver. They call it abdominal thrusts. I think I'll still refer to it by the old name. I don't see myself going up to a woman and asking if she'll let me do some abdominal thrusts on her.

Oh, and if they're coughing, leave them, they're more effective at removing it themselves. If they're not coughing ask them to talk. If they can't talk, then it is completely blocked and you can do the thrusts. (and not 5 times.... you only need to do it until it comes out which is usually two - probably one to see the reaction, and the second to do it hard enough)

With the yanks it's premature until the final out of the last inning.

Forget all the sports crap you've read on this thread.

1 Ask the person to stand.

2 Place yourself slightly behind the choking person.

3 Assure the person that you know the Heimlich maneuver and are going to help.

4 Place your arms around his or her waist.

5 Make a fist with one hand and place your thumb toward A-Rod, just above his or her belly button.

6 Grab your fist with your other hand.

7 Deliver five upward squeeze-thrusts into the abdomen.

8 Make each squeeze-thrust strong enough to dislodge a foreign body.

9 Understand that your thrusts make the diaphragm move air out of the choking person's lungs, creating a kind of artificial cough.

10 Keep a firm grip on the person, since he or she can lose consciousness and fall to the ground if the Heimlich maneuver is not effective.

11 Repeat the Heimlich maneuver until he or she stops choking.

A Red Sox fan prematurely busting on the Yankees about choking no less? Wow, win one World Series every 100 years and look what happens. Go Rockies!

You may gloat now.

While you are at it, go slap the Buffalo Bills QB silly. Threw an interception when they were within range of putting the Cowboys away

Trust me, having to face them scared me a bit. Thanks to the Midges, we won't need to worry about the Skankees




The Cowboy's have a real tough game coming up against the Pats. Any predictions on that one?

That's for sure. There aren't too many 150 pound players in the NFL.

Hope the patriots grind them to dust. I think it's wrong to take pleasure in someone else's misery, but in Jerry Jones' case, I make an exception. Right up there with Steinbrenner.

That said, pulling in Romo as an undrafted free agent has got to be one of the best football deals ever.
