I don’t want to rag on baseball players too much (since guys in “tough” sports like football experience freak injuries as well) but it’s hard not to roll your eyes when you hear about Torii Hunter and the Case of the Tight Shoes.
A grade 3 tear hip flexor tear will sideline him for the duration of the Warrior’s postseason. A postseason that would be expeditiously cut short in his absence were it not for his former Knick teammate/Isaiah Thomas draft pick Danilo Galinari also out. Is this a Knick playoff curse? Of course it is.
Bad news, Kobe has ruptured his achilles tendon. What does that mean for the Lakers postseason hopes with 2 games left, or Kobe’s career, or all sorts of NBA benchmarks/records he was supposed to break? Our breakdown as well as video of Kobe breaking down after the jump.
Earlier this morning, Alex Ovechkin took a puck to the face during Capitals’ practice, slicing open his chin for a nice and healthy gash that required 22 stitches. Ovechkin decided to post a picture of his gash on Twitter, both pre and post-stitches, because he is a mensch. And look at how nicely it healed! After the jump, of course.
The Lakers’ 96-92 loss to the Hawks tonight already would have been a disappointment – with the Jazz falling 110-87 to the Thunder, the game presented a golden opportunity to put a bit of distance between L.A. and Utah for the West’s eighth seed. But the Lakers couldn’t get the job done… and then lost their franchise player.
By now there’s a decent chance you’ve heard the bizarre (and scary) story of Mark Mihal, the guy who was just playing a round of golf in Waterloo, Illinois, standing on the course, minding his own business… when he fell into an 18-foot sinkhole that hadn’t previously been visible. Crazy? Yes… but sinkholes on golf courses actually aren’t rare.
Did you know there was a day, not so long ago, where NHL players just didn’t wear helmets at all? Looking back on that now, it seems super dumb. One day when all NHLers are required to don face masks, we might be singing a similar song. Or at the very least, Marc Staal will.
Apparently this happened over the weekend in a French soccer league match, but it just came to our attention this afternoon, via USA Today. If you’re not squeamish, you can check it out after the jump. If you are squeamish, probably best to spend your day some other way.
Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman Broke His Ankle Jumping Out Of A Plane
To Escape His Thankless Job For Charity
The New York Yankees can’t quite escape the ankle injury bug these days. There was Derek Jeter, of course, breaking his ankle in last year’s playoffs, but now the disabled list has infiltrated the front office.
It wasn’t a good day for Rory McIlroy. After a disappointing finish to his opening round at the Honda Classic on Thursday (he bogeyed the par-5 18th hole to finish at an even 70 on the day), the world’s top-ranked player got off to an absolutely terrible start today. And then, he… just walked off.
