I still like this one...


Glenallen Hill missed a few games after falling out of his bed while having an arachnophobic dream about spiders. He dreamt that spiders were devouring him, jumped off his bed, fell through a glass table, and crawled through the shards of glass

This is one of the "hmmm" injuries

May 10 According to The Providence Journal, Boston Red Sox 1B Kevin Millar (eye) will have a second round of eye surgery Monday. Millar injured himself in a screwdriver accident at home last week.

Didn't John Smoltz try to iron his shirt while he was still wearing it?

Who was the Wide Reciever on the Bears who destroyed both his knees when they got stuck in the Awful Philadelphia Veterans Field Turf?

Cant place the name....

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Since we had different takes on it, I pulled the tape and watched it again just now. Sid Vicious in the WCW (he was Psycho Sid in the WWE when it was the WWF, but at the time of the break he was with WCW, hence Sid Vicious at the time of the break), he jumped off the middle (not the top ;-) ) turnbuckle and sustained a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula. He was wrestling Scott Steiner at the time (who is now currently with the WWE). Really weird to just see his lower leg just hanging there at such an odd angle.

Scroll up and you will see that I already mentioned it. :-D Big wrestling fan here. B-)

Didn't mention Owen Hart due to it being his death instead of an injury :,-( . For those who don't know, Owen Hart was using a gimmick called "The Blue Meanie" and was going to be lowered into the ring from the ceiling for his match at a pay-per-view. Unfortunately, either he was not strapped in properly, or the harness broke (it was kept fairly quiet) and he fell to the ring hitting his head on the turnbuckle and breaking his neck. :,-(
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.....

I can't remember who it was but didn't a baseball or basketball player break his hand answering the phone, I believe he missed a good amount of time too.
