All Time Dumb Sports Injuries
Enes Kanter goes down. For all accounts he broke his arm out 6 to 8 weeks. I guess hitting the bench and breaking your arm isn’t too bad but it is a pretty soft look for NBA players.

I love to see people get hurt in stupid ways during games and really out of games. The most fun ones are while they are celebrating but some are even dumber.
10. Sammy Sosa Injured Himself Sneezing
For all of you that don’t want to remember just how bad Sammy was on his way out of the Cubs organization here it is. Some people remember him for his home runs, Some people will remember him for his Corked bats or now his so white he is clear skin. Me I’m going to remember just how dumb he was that he got hurt in 2004 from sneezing.
9. Carlos Quentin Broke his Wrist Punching a Bat
I have a special place for this guy. He will always remind me of a 90’s baseball movie guy that has some problem he needs a live chicken to remove. In 2009 he was leading the league in Home runs got pissed he fouled a ball off and punched his bat. Love It.
8. Milton Bradley Tears ACL Arguing Call
Milton Bradley, my favorite board game company, was just a typical non descriptive good baseball player and a horrible pick up from the Cubs at one point. Kind of like a Vance Law was pretty good during his time in the majors but once he is gone he won’t be remembered. This happened arguing a call where it was a close play on first.
7. Jimmy Johnson Fell Off a Golf Cart
This is the race car driver. He was in the off season. Decided to surf on the top of the golf cart fell off and broke his wrist.
6. Adam Eaton Cutting Himself Opening a DVD
He did it opening Big Mamma’s House. Great pick up White Sox.
5. Bill Gramatica Tears ACL Celebrating
We have all seen this. What a pussy.
4. Hunter Pence Glass Door
I have always wanted to root for this guy because of the ridiculousness of his name. He was out at a friends house. Friend closed the sliding door and he ran right threw it. Broke right threw it and got cut up so bad he had to go to the hospital.
3. Gus Frerotte Head Butt
This couldn’t be a list if he wasn’t on here. Will be an all timer and the only reason this guy will ever be remembered.
2. Orlando Brown’s Eye
This one will always stick out in my mind because it has to be the dumbest way for someone to miss 3 seasons because of an injury. He ended up winning $20 mill for it so at least there is that.
1. Plaxico Burress Shot Himself in the Leg
The nightclub incident. I still don’t understand and will never understand how and why you would 1. bring a gun to a night club and B. be wearing sweatpants. Ballsy move that didn’t turn out so good for him shooting himself and getting arrested.
