Top Ten Rehabilitation Orders Doctors Gave Denny Hamlin After Knee Surgery

Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Wednesday March 31, 2010


10. Post-It notes reminding him that he is a race car driver and not some minority college kid in the Final Four.

9. Daily “healing hypnosis” sessions induced by staring at the swinging pendulums of three Grandfather Clocks.

8. A shot of Crown Royal, once a day, in honor of Matt Kenseth.

Look Mike, I know we got the clock and all… but seriously, I work hard enough for my money!

7. OK, two shots of Crown when he really gets to thinking of how Kenseth helped him out!

6. A daily whirlpool session that includes Kenseth, Jeff Gordon, Ryan Newman, and Joey Logano so they can all get together to reminisce about the closing laps — and Denny can brag they got beat by a one-legged Virginian.

5. Strict orders not to enter any butt kickin’ contests.

4. Ordered not to win any races for at least six weeks as doing burnouts is hard on the affected ligaments.

3. A sturdy leg brace, because doctors foresee a massive swelling of his head once he starts believing he’s the only challenger to Jimmie Johnson.

2. Deep knee bends while kissing Mike Ford’s butt for making a gutsy call with less than 10 laps to go.

1. Practice kicking Mike Ford in the butt for making such a gutsy call, causing Denny to work so hard for a win!
