INJURY of the SEASON

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Madison » Thu May 20, 2004 12:46 am

If we are going with all time injuries, how about Dave Draveky's (sp?) last pitch? Saw his arm break in half at the elbow. Pretty nasty stuff.

Any wrestling fans remember Sid Vicious's leg breaking in half when he was with WCW? Jumped off the middle rope and snap! Half his shin was just hanging there.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

In the gross out department I don't think the Theisman injury can compete with Jermaine Dye. It looked like a toothpick.


For strange but true Mario has an excellent list here.

My favorites?

Pitcher Steve Sparks dislocated his shoulder while tearing a phone book in half, as he was trying to emulate a motivational speaker.

Paul Molitor dislocated a knuckle when it got stuck in another player's glove.

And of course as a Royals fan

Vince Coleman missed the 1985 World Series when he got rolled up in the tarp machine. ;-D :-°

LMAO. All very funny. Great thread. Forgot about Coleman.. haha


As for Bill Grammatica, it should be pointed out that the field goal he was celebrating was like a 33 yarder and in the second quarter if memory serves me correct. what a dork.

Worst injuries I remember seeing:

- Robert Edwards breaking his leg in for-fun game.

- Moises Alou a while back, which was already mentioned. It was very similar to Dmitri Young's incident.

- Robin Ventura sliding into home plate and breaking his ankle, while playing with Chicago. I think it was in ST, and it was NASTY.

- Psycho Sid (if you consider wrestling a sport) jumping off the top rope and breaking his lower leg :-o I can barely watch that video. I can almost feel the pain.

And also, I know somebody who threw out their hip while sneezing. So I can somewhat see where Sosa is coming from :-D

DHC.....I'm surprised you or wrveres hasn't mentioned my "falling out of bed whiel playing XBox" injury. If it was baseball season I'd have been on the 15 day DL with a lacerated thumb :-b It's funny to laugh at now, but it hurt like hell at the time.
