This is a question Sporting Woe

In which we ask a bunch of pasty-faced shut-ins about their exploits on the sports field. How bad was it for you?

Thanks to scarpe for the suggestion.

The Horrors of 5 a Side
Playing a 5 a side "friendly" competition last year I happened to run at full speed behind the net (full size outdoor pitch with 4 games before anyone starts picking holes) and straight into a knot in the middle of a rope tying the net to a fence. I crumpled to the ground winded and in quite a lot of pain.

I get up and carry on with every breath being a pain in the... well, chest I guess! Turns out on later inspection I had cracked a rib at the top left of my rib cage. What made this worse is it was summer and I have really bad hay fever, every breath let alone sneeze, sniffle or blow of my nose was horrible

6 weeks later I decide to go back to 5 a side with a few mates. Worst idea ever. Going for a tackle I get my knee clipped by a player running by and I dropped like a stone with my knee banjaxed. 8 week lay off for that one.

Decided to go back after that was healed, (you can see where this is going) went for a header against another player and got knocked backwards losing my balance (I’m a skinny lad, don't weigh that much!) landing on another player who was just trying to get up. My ribs met his pointed elbow and a sickening crack followed by a familiar pain shot through me. Another cracked rib.

Just to top it all off when that was healing nicely I was watching a footy final (not saying which one as I’ll don't want your sympathy for supporting them) which ended with me celebrating and some big bastard grabbing me in a bear hug and swinging me round....

Another cracked rib.

3 cracked ribs and a destroyed knee in 8 months all due to sport. And I was told exercise was good for you.

Thats the thing
I have at least a pint of milk a day. Sometimes gaming I'll knock back a 2L drum of it instead of coke.
