James Harrison (@jhharrison92) used to hate needles—HATE them. But after 15 punishing seasons in the NFL, the New England Patriot linebacker, who on Sunday will play in his fourth Super Bowl, has learned to love them. Well maybe not love them, but he loves what they do for his 39-year-old body. Last spring photographer Fritz Hoffmann and I spent several days in Arizona documenting Harrison’s offseason routine, which includes a variety of therapies to help reduce the pain and soreness that comes with his famously intense weightlifting sessions. He told us that former teammate James Farrior got him to try acupuncture for the first time. “He said, ‘Dude, try this. You're going to feel great.’ I'm like, 'Dude, (screw) needles.' But I did it, and it worked. So, I said, OK, I'm going to have to deal with the needles.” Since then, Harrison’s acupuncturist, Lisa Ripi, flies in from New York for weekly sessions. The day we were there, she inserted more than 400 needles at different points all over his body. He seemed to barely notice, checking his phone and reading on his laptop as she slid in the needles. Some go as deep as three inches into his dense muscles. Ripi says this promotes blood flow and speeds recovery after a workout. It’s a technique that remains controversial among medical professionals. “If it makes me feel good and I play good, that's all I need,” said Harrison. “I don't need no scientific proof. I don't need no studies. I don't need none of that.”

I am so sad to be away from your smiling faces, your sarcasm, your love and hearing of your highs and lows. As I’m sure you’ve been made acutely aware - this year has been a rough one for me, medically. I’ve had to miss many moments of your year, and that truly breaks my heart! Seriously! I have a few more tests to be done, treatment and then I should be able to return before spring break! 😍 Be kind to one another, and feel free to email me if you need anything (or just someone to listen to you xx). I think about y’all everyday. 💛 Coops
It was a weekend for the history books, hopefully never to be repeated. We're thankful for a faithful God and His strength to get us through. 💪 I'm happy to be home, snuggled in and feeling better. I'm thankful for @isaacboyes the best looking male nurse 😜 and @leafluit @tamminga and all the family and friends for their kind words and support! I love you all!
@proudfootk for the cozy knits 🤗
