Weekend Warriors

Classic story for y'all.

Saturday afternoon, me, my roomates and a couple other friends of mine decide to play some football out in the park. Of course, thinking we were tough, we decide to play tackle. 3 on 3, with the 7th man (who has a torn ACL) as the auto-QB. So the game goes fine for awhile, my team gets way ahead (up by 5 TD's), when the first injury occurs. Seems my friend (James) who was the hurt QB decides he also likes to tackle people. So he gets in a 3 man tackle and completely twists his knee...he goes DOWN writhing in pain. But after about 10 minutes, he is back up and ready to play (although later that evening he would be in incredible pain with a nice bag of frozen corn on his knee to keep down the swelling).

So we play a little bit longer. Im on defense this time, and the other team lines up in the I-formation (stupid when you have no line-man). I blitz because i could tell they were doing a hand-0ff (poorly, i might add) and end up trying to tackle the man with the ball, Andy. we collide FACE to FACE, and i go down with a split lip and a bloody nose. Awesome.

After about 5 minutes the blood and snot stop flowing out of my nose, and we get back to playing. 20 minutes later, my roomate Navin is trying to tackle my other roomate Tim, by grabbing the waistband of his sweatpants. But Tim struggled on and the waistband snapped back, and Navin goes down holding his hand in pain.

At the emergency room, they tell him that he broke his pinky and ring finger of his right hand, and to make matters worse, he has to have surgery this friday on the ring finger, to put a metal pin in it.

To make a long story short (though its probably too late for that now!), we are all sore, broken, and tired...from now on we will stick to watching it on TV!


P.S. to mike- this means navin cannot come out this weekend (surgery), so it will just be me and Julie visiting you and your lovely wife.
