    More silly injuries

    Hello all,

    In the aftermath of Glenn McGrath's slightly feeble excuse for missing the second Ashes test (standing on a cricket ball whilst recieving a rugby pass and tearing lateral ankle ligaments), a few more amusing sporting injuries have been reported...

    Derek Pringle

    The former England all-rounder Derek Pringle suffered a back injury while he was sitting down to write a letter.

    Chris Lewis

    The former Leicestershire all-rounder decided to shave his head during a tour of the West Indies and then got sunstroke.

    Stuart Spruce

    The Widnes rugby league full-back injured a shoulder trying to stop his dogs fighting with each other.

    Rio Ferdinand

    During his spell at Leeds the England defender managed to pick up a tendon strain in his knee watching television. Ferdinand had his foot up on a coffee table for a number of hours and ended up injuring a tendon behind his knee.

    Richard Wright

    The Everton goalkeeper faced most of the summer on the sidelines after damaging his shoulder falling through a loft as he was trying to pack away his suitcases.

    Sean Flynn

    The then Kidderminster Harrier's captain suffered a broken nose, busted lip and bruised toes after tripping over his son's toy cars.

    Dave Beasant

    The veteran goalkeeper managed to rule himself out for eight weeks in 1993 when he dropped a bottle of salad cream on his foot, severing the tendon in his big toe.

    Santiago Canizares

    The Spain goalkeeper missed the 2002 World Cup after accidentally shattering a bottle of aftershave in his hotel sink. A piece of glass fell on his foot, severing a tendon in his big toe.

    Kasey Keller

    The American international knocked out his front teeth while pulling his golf clubs out of the boot of his car.

    Alan Wright

    The diminutive former Aston Villa full-back strained his knee by stretching to reach the accelerator in his new Ferrari. He subsequently swapped the sports car for a Rover 416.

    David James

    The England goalkeeper once pulled a muscle in his back when reaching for the television remote control and the keen angler also tweaked his shoulder when trying to land a monster carp.

    Steve Morrow

    The former Northern Ireland defender broke his collarbone after falling off the shoulders of Tony Adams while celebrating the 1993 League Cup final win against Sheffield Wednesday.

    Alex Stepney

    In 1975 the Manchester United goalkeeper Alex Stepney dislocated his jaw while shouting at his defenders during a match against Birmingham.

    Chic Brodie

    The Brentford goalkeeper's career came to an abrupt end in October 1970 when he collided with a sheepdog which had run onto the pitch. Brodie shattered his kneecap while the dog got the ball. "The dog might have been a small one, but it just happened to be a solid one," he reflected.

    Svein Grondalen

    The Norway defender had to withdraw from an international during the 1970s after colliding with a moose while out jogging.

    Alan Mullery

    The England star missed the 1964 tour of South America after injuring his back while brushing his teeth.

    David Batty

    The former Leeds and Blackburn midfielder managed to re-injure his Achilles tendon when he was run over by his toddler on a tricycle.

    Darren Barnard

    The former Barnsley midfielder was sidelined for five months with a torn knee ligament after he slipped in a puddle of his puppy's urine on the kitchen floor.

    Lee Hodges

    The then Barnet player slipped on a bar of soap in the shower and wrenched his groin.

    Charlie George

    Arsenal's 1971 FA Cup hero managed to cut off his toe with a lawnmower.

    Colin Montgomerie

    The Scot had to withdrew from the Open at Royal St George's after tripping over a step on his way to breakfast when he was looking up at the sky in disbelief at the bad weather. He suffered a swollen right wrist and badly bruised knees and although he tried to play he abandoned his attempts after seven holes.

    Sam Torrance

    The Ryder Cup-winning captain managed to fracture his sternum after colliding with a flower pot while sleep-walking.

    Jose Maria Olazabal

    The Spaniard broke a bone in his hand at the US Open in 1999 after punching his hotel room wall in frustration at a bad round.


    The Indonesian footballer was killed aged just 25 by a stampede of pigs which overran his team's training pitch in 1995

    I'm off to lie down in a darkened room until next Thursday - not sure I can stand the pressure any longer. If it's this bad to watch the games, heaven knows what it's like to play in them :eek:
