So "a while" = approximately one day?

Not that this isn't something worth noting.

That's good news.

I wonder whether I should be as reluctant to watch football as I am boxing, for fear of seeing a man die in the cause of my entertainment. The slow crippling of backs and linemen is not the only worry.

The ascendancy of Tom Brady in the 2001 season followed Drew Bledsoe's exit from a game with a lung punctured by broken ribs and collapsed. During the 2005 season, one player was knocked out of a game with what turned out later to be a bruised aorta, which seemed at the time and seems now to be uncomfortably close to a killing wound. Last year, Chris Sims suffered a ruptured (and ultimately removed) spleen.

Drew Bledsoe's exit from a game with a lung punctured by broken ribs

I thought it wasn't a punctured lung, but a sheared blood vessel in his chest.

Everything is like crack, if you have the right attitude. Or so the Buddha says.

Aw, geez, apo. I didn't want to see that. And for entirely different reasons than I generally didn't want to see the things you link to. (Totally SFW, but disturbing as all get out.)

Oh, he's injured. I thought he was just very flexible.

Maybe just flexible? That was what I found so disturbing -- having to look at the picture for a while before I realized that there was one seriously fucked up ankle there. I kept on trying to make it anatomically possible. But maybe I was wrong and he's okay.

No, he's definitely injured (just looked it up).

Quote from the article accompanying the photo: "I looked at his foot, and I didn't need to look at it anymore."

Indeed.
