Joe Donahue: Today is my first day at work in over two-and-a-half months. On November 17th, in Dublin, Ireland, I fell down a flight of stairs and suffered a bi-lateral tear of my quadriceps. I still have no real idea what that means. The way I have been explaining it is – you know that song: “The knee bone’s connected to the leg bone?” Well, mine wasn’t. So, I invited the guy who put me back together to be on the program today. He can explain it better, I am sure.
