    Well we had are first softball game lastnight,and they stuck me in left centerfield. Well first inning no action for me..Next inning guy ropes it over my head. I ran to the face turn and threw the hell out of the ball,and feel something tear right above my elbow. I continue to play,and threw a couple more times...then pull out,and I rode the pine the rest of the game. I drive home,call Kaiser and off to the Emergency room. Come to find out that I torn my tricep,so now I have to have my right arm in a sling for atleast 2 weeks. This sucks... It took me 4 minutes to type this with my left hand. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    That sucks!

    Here's a good softball war story for ya...

    Friend of mine out in left center, ball gets hit-back, back, waaayyy back...to the fence. He jumps up to catch it and comes down on the top "spike thingy" on the metal fence...mouth first! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    Ripped through his top lip straight up his face!
    One of the worst sights I've ever seen! Still gives me the chills!

    Hey, that is nothing! My dad used to play minor-league baseball and when I was a kid he jumped for a fly ball and the leftfielder ran into him and knocked him right up on the chainlink fence, yes, you know how I mean. Had to go to the hospital for stitches, too. Not the big guy, just where the two little guys live. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Don't worry, though, I have two younger brothers from after that. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
