Each week (or something like that) a different topic for the post will be chosen and to get the ball rolling this week, the topic is sports related injuries.

Yeah I know, not the most uplifting of topics and perhaps not the time to bring up a double leg break (unless you want to!), but there is plenty of scope for poetic licence and comedy.

Take @galenkp's amazing rise to stardom, and then dramatic fall from grace for instance:

I'm not sure how high my magnificent leap was, 10 or 15 metres at least, in my mind, but probably much less than that in reality. I felt the wind catch the board a little as I rose and fell.

.... I went down, the board hit the water and its natural buoyancy thrust it back skywards, in a leap that probably rivaled my own, tearing it from within my tenacious galenkp-chopper-grip. source


A few years ago, I was playing pool against the one of the entertainment staff members at a hotel in Portugal. A couple of drinks in, and with slightly sodden shorts from water polo not long prior, I felt confident about whipping this guy on a flat surface, as he had dominated the polo whilst i drank a lot of pool water.

We were half way through the first game, and I stepped up for my shot, slipping slightly on a puddle. My foot stopped sharply as it went from wet to dry, and it was then that I realised this was mostly due to my 2nd toe folding underneath my foot. It hurt a lot, and I couldn't even finish the game. For the rest of the holiday I was limping and having people laugh at me when I told them what happened. When I got home the doc told me I'd probably broken it, but there was not much that could be done. A broken toe playing pool, lame as you can get!


Something like that, but with a bit more chunk would be ideal.

  • Points for embarrassment
  • Points for comedy
  • I'll remind my STS buddies of the #sts-contest so they can dish some votes out
  • 50,000 SPORTS to the best one, chosen by myself and my extensive advisory team of no-one, as yet
  • A sports related injury you suffered, caused by you or some other 'idiot'
  • Don't forget the #sportstalk and #sts-contest tags or else I might miss your post



The floodlights man, they got me source

Good luck!

Asher

I'll have to have a think about some of the injuries I've had (or caused) over the years and see what I can come up with.

I can't wait until the topic of the day is the best sledges

Poetic licence - it was a Bobsleigh right? :)

This is awesome. I didn't notice, is this an ongoing contest or was there an end date? I will definitely take advantage of it next week. I already wrote my post for the day today :)

Cheers :)

I'll do a different topic next week and so I guess it'll run until post payout.

Hmm, so many injuries...I'm going to give this a go I think. I mean who can resist

massive profitsssssssssssssssss.

:)

MASSIVE I tell thee. I'm not surprised considering how old... all the sporting activities you have undertaken :D

Cheeky bugger. 😉

Always. And 0 slaps, must try harder :D

When one is as old as I am one gets used to jibes about age...I'm still rocking it though...Strong as an ox, wise like an owl and humble as a mouse! 😊

Besides, you ain't so far behind sir. 😂

You are correct, and I seem to be lacking more than one of those attributes!

Solution: More pies.

Pies, making people smarter.

Who knew that pool was such a rough sport!

I have one that springs to mind that I'll blog about later

I know right - always wear the appropriate footwear!

Cheers, looking forward to it :)

I have loads that spring to mind.

Let's hear one then old timer :D

NIce, it's not my topic, but I love to see a great topic and we could use more sports related content!

Good luck to everyone.

Thanks :)

Yeah we have a fair bit, it's just that people dont use #sport and opt for #sportstalk - I even forgot to use it in this one!

And thank you for the Resteem!

Only one entry per participant or one can make multiple entries?

hmm, ideally one cracker would be best but if you have two equally awesome stories to tell, go for it :)

Thanks. Wish you a lovely day.

Hmmm I don’t do sports much... 🤔

I stubbed my toe this morning on the way to the coffee maker.. does that work?

Was it because you were cartwheeling over to it as it was going to be your 6th of the day?

No.. but I did stumble out of bed in the bitch dark looking for a light switch.. I mean that’s more physical labor than most baseball players take part in 🤷‍♀️

Burn. I agree though, that sport seems more about the beer and eats.

It would have been better if you reworded the 5th requirement to "A sports related injury you suffered, witnessed or know of, caused by you or some other 'idiot'."

Otherwise you are excluding sports fans and sports journalists from participating.

Yeah, I'd like a personal one.

Nice contest, but I don't think I have had any such experience to share it. But I always love to see the #contest to feed myself an opportunity.

Anything from school days? Thanks!

An interesting competition and an impressive prize @abh12345.sports, it remains only to remember about their sports injuries :)

I'm sure most can remember more than 1 injury, mainly due to pain or embarrassment :)

Great effort Asher.
I will try to make a post related to this topic.

Thanks @rabeel, I'm hoping that the prize and the votes for solid efforts are worth a write-up, cheers!

I just saw this and would have loved to tell how the female teachers in my school played a football match with final year students after their exams. Not up to 5mins into the match, a student kicked me and i fell down. Haha. I have never been so embarassed. I suffered pain on that spot i was kicked for more than two weeks. Lol. I am not able to make a post with it cos i have no pictures to show and the story is so short. I will participate fully next week. Well done.

:)

The teacher v student games can be quite competitive!

Yes there's no rules on length of post but a bit longer than mine and yours above is probably best :)

this is absolutely cool @abh12345 i could make more sports power in that case...i can still remember my injuries so i take i could gladly participate this one..Thank for this contest sir!

My pleasure, I hope to see a post from you this week :)

i will.

Ouch, that must have been painful :(

Are you doing better today? Go for it!

Thanks. My dad is I'll and that complicates things but I've managed to get some rest so I'll be fine.

This is an amazing contest initiative. Good job @abh12345.sports

You didn't specify the duration of the contest, like when it ends. I'm sure it's still on right now though, and I'm gonna drop my crude injury experience.

Hi @abh12345.sports. Did this contest ever end? or is it ongoing? Just wondering since it was posted 13 days ago.
