Must be I’m getting old

I keep finding new ways to injure myself. You know that soft spot right under your thumb?


During my lunchtime soccer game, I somehow managed to severely bruise this area. So bad that I thought I broke my thumb. I’m still having a hard time holding a pen, but I’m feeling a little better. I iced the crap out of it and took some Mortin but it’s still swollen and bruised.


Can you see what I’m talking about? How do you injure this part of your body when you’re playing soccer??
The other thing I managed to do was pull my quad. At the very end of our game, I was dribbling up the field and I saw a guy wide open right in front of the goal in the middle of the field. So I looked up, took an extra step to get my balance, and perfectly executed the pass, but in mid kick I could feel the quad pull. After my teammate missed the goal (doh!) I hobbled off the field, completely done. By this point, my quad was burning and my hand was throbbing.

I’m still happy I played though, as sick as that sounds.

I know, something is severely wrong with me.

What’s the weirdest injury you’ve ever had?

  2. How did you do that? Did you fall and hyperextend it or did someone slide tackle you so you slammed your hand in their face? :p
