It Only Hurts When I Laugh
Oxey reports that he strained his achilles tendon jumping 6" to grab something over his head. I think that this injury is far lamer than my multiple Wii injuries, but he disagrees. All of which brings to mind some of the stupider injuries, which of course, can be further categorized into subsets of stupid injuries: show-boating stupid---Drew Pearson spiking the ball over the crossbar after scoring (knee), Gus Ferotte banging his head against a concrete wall after scoring (concussion); drunkenly stupid---Erik Williams car wreck (entire body); criminally stupid---Plaxico Burris shooting himself with an illegal handgun (leg); youthfully stupid---Ben Rothlesberger and Cullen Winslow Jr. crashing their motorcycles (miscellaneous broken bones and internal injuries). Any others come to mind?
