Dumb injuries and even dumber players...

Postby TheYanks04 » Tue Jan 27, 2004 12:37 am

OK, thought I would get a list going of some of the more notable ones in light of the Aaron Boone Rocket Scientist situation today.

Correct me if any of these are wrong:


Smoltz burning himself by ironing his shirt while still wearing it.

Mantei cutting his hand opening a can of dog food.

Nettles cutting his hand mowing his lawn.

Sasaki hurting his back lifting his own luggage up stairs in a hotel.

Morris hurting himself jumping down stairs in dress shoes to get to an elevator.

Klesko hurting his back moving a giant American Flag during pre-games ceremonies in SD.

Cone hurting his hand by being bitten by a dog.


Please add to the list.

He wasn't washing his car. He was riding weelies on his motorcycle. The washing his car was a stupid excuse to cover for his even stupider actions.

Not that it's that stupid but a freak accident was Mike Lansings "sneeze that threw out his back".

This one's fantastic. In honor of my avatar, I give you Brian Anderson, in his own words:

As for the iron, I was getting ready to press a shirt. You know on the road some of the irons you plug in and have to turn on; some you plug in and they're automatically on. There've been so many that I plugged in, would wait five minutes, go to use it and it would be one you had to flip on. So this one, I plugged in while watching the Indians play on Sunday Night Baseball. I picked up the iron, held it to my face to feel the heat and was trying to look around the corner (of the iron) to watch the game. I just put my cheek right on it. It didn't take much, and it fried the side of my face.

I believe he missed a start as a result. :-b

Back in is prime with the Indians, Sandy Alomar Jr. thought it would be fun to drive from Cleveland to Florida straight through for spring training, instead of flying. Well, he messed up his back on that trip and if I recall correctly, struggled with it all season. To this day I assume he just wanted to stick the travel money the team gives out in his pocket, the cheap bastard.

Plus his failure to slide home cost us the title.
Eternal vigilance is the price of integrity.
