So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


That's gotta hurt!

Arsenal's Eduardo suffered a grody injury Saturday in their match versus Birmingham City. Most of the videos of it have been taken down, but I found a few. It is even grosser than the picture shows it. In a statement, Arsenal Football Club said: The Club can confirm that following the incident during Saturday’s match at Birmingham City, Eduardo has fractured his left fibula and sustained an open dislocation of his ankle joint in the same leg.
He was immediately taken to Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham where he underwent surgery on Saturday evening. The operation was successful and Eduardo was transferred to a London-based hospital on Sunday afternoon. Earlier today (Monday 25th February), the Orthopaedic surgeon and Arsenal medical staff assessed the extent of the damage and possible time scale for a full recovery. All being well, Eduardo will have his leg in plaster and using crutches for the next six to eight weeks. After that time, partial weight-bearing exercises will be scheduled into a slow rehabilitation process. It is hoped that Eduardo will be running again in six months time and making a full recovery after nine months. Eduardo will be released from hospital in a few days.

Damn. Oh yeah, Taylor with B'ham City: red card.

    OMG, serious ouch. Reminds me of the Theisman injury from a million years ago.

    Thanks a heckuvalot, AoM. Now I'm gonna have flashbacks to blowing out my knee for the next couple of weeks just like after the Theisman injury.

    (It's hurting like hell right now, just from sympathy with this poor bloke.)
