Anyone other than me fascinated by professional sports injuries?
First injury I ever saw was televised, Joe Thiesmann's compound fracture of his leg when he got hit by Lawrence Taylor back in 1985. TV was pretty raw back then and the instant replays were pretty gruesome.
The London Olympic weightlifting event today, where the South Korean had a "devastating injury" reminded me of the Theismann injury; your body just isn't supposed to look like that.
For the younger Wooters, here's Theismann's footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHCXNt4P8Xg
Here is the replay of the London Olympics (this has pics of the back angle): http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=87d_1343911641
Maybe it is the "doctor in me" that's loves medical stuff in general. Makes hubby's stomach turn to see or even hear stuff like this.
