    Worst injury you've had...

    So I just watched the video of the cart taking the wide receiver last night and read the ESPN article and cringed...What's the worst injury you've had?

    I'm going to go with a torn groin during football/cross country my freshman year. Gave a whole new meaning to being blue balled all day from a freaking ice pack

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    Took a charge in high school, got a knee in the chest, cracked my sternum and hit my head so hard on the floor I got a concussion... Guy who did it went on to be infamous for this...



    Tore my plantar facia a couple years ago, thought I got shot in the foot...still bothers me.

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    I had too much to drink once and stuck a stick through my foot. 3 years later some wood surfaced in a bloody mess. Ahh... College.

    Oh, were you talking about SPORTS injuries???

    I was cut by jumbopackage once. Cut me real deep.

    But seriously, I'd rather avoid any sort of knee injury in the future. Suckage.

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    I've made it through pretty easy so far...

    Broken nose in HS, due to a bad hop grounder is the worst I can come up with, except for various papercuts, which are excruciating.

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    Torn ACL/ sprained MCL. They ended up taking some hamstring tendons instead of my patellar because my growth plate was still open and they wanted to give me a chance to grow some more. This led to recurrent hamstring problems during track, and I'm still not any taller.

    That wasnt the other one I was thinking of... Course the knee was probably worse overall... "You never hit a man in the pills."


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    In order from most pain to the least (relatively speaking)

    1) Ligament and Tendon damage in left knee playing a pick game of football at ISU
    2) Broke my right elbow two weeks ago working out at the gym (I fell and hit a weight bench)
    3) Plantar Fasciitis in BOTH Feet at the same time
    4) Threw my back out moving while at ISU

    Re: Worst injury you've had...

    Shattered the bones in my left wrist about 10 years ago playing hockey. I was cutting in front of the goal and got hit low, and then the goalies weight and my entire bodyweight landed on my elbow. Put your hand on a table with your elbow up in the air, and now think of 400 lbs landing on it.

    I still cannot do pushups because my wrist does not bend right.
