On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
I'm definitely not going to go perusing through videos of horrific injuries to see which one is worst. I don't want that to happen to anyone, much less actually want to see someone's limbs (and livelihoods, in the cases of NFL players) be literally ripped apart. Although it does make me wonder what highlight videos of lumberjack or commercial fisherman injuries would look like, if their professions were widely televised. Not that I'd want to watch that, either, but for perspective when people start talking about how football is too dangerous. I live in Alaska, and have worked on some dangerous jobs, and you just kind of understand that while you might end up just fine, there's other people who die doing what you're doing each year. I'd be thinking of commercial fishing in particular in this case. I'm sure that a football player feels significantly more satisfied with his line of work, so I don't feel bad about watching them risk their limbs in the spirit of competition.
