Playing through the pain

Why is everyone making such a big deal about Tedy Bruschi's return to the football field? Consider this story:

It's our 2nd round chess match, and we are already behind 0-1 (of 6), from a game played early.... Robert (our 2nd best player and a close friend) calls me up last night and says he just left the hospital due to some neck muscle injury. I told him to stay home and get better, but being one of our more dedicated players, he says he'll come anyway as long as it isn't in any way health risky. In other words, the guy will be doped up, riding in a cab for an hour, and in a lot of pain, but still plans to play. A man after my own heart. Also an idiot.
