I don’t remember the last time an injury knocked me out of a basketball game, but an accidental blow to my right calf did the trick. I still have pain, and walking is a struggle, but Saturday (September 12) was screaming pain.
Notice the triangle scar underneath the bruise. That happened in my pre-teen years while crawling through a barbed-wire fence. I only felt cold on my leg, and waited several minutes to look at it. I was on a farm, so I was not taken anywhere for stitches.
I also have a bump on the opposite knee, but I have no idea how it got there, and it doesn’t hurt.
It is anyone’s guess if I will be able to play this coming Saturday.
A couple of years ago, I got whacked in the eye playing basketball. That was the best shiner ever!
