Weird Sports Injuries

Bill Grammatica
Who can forget Bill Grammatica injuring himself after celebrating a field goal?

By Lang Whitaker, SI.com When the Miami Dolphins take on the New York Giants on Sunday in London, they will be without linebacker Zach Thomas. He was hurt last Sunday, not during the Dolphins desecration at the hands of New England, but after the game, when Thomas was rear-ended in postgame traffic by a man wearing a Pats jersey. This is the same Pats team that utilizes punter Chris Hanson, who was injured as a member of the Jaguars when coach Jack Del Rio's motivational routine involving an axe and a stump of wood resulted in Hanson requiring stitches. And during the World Series, try not to smile when you see Rockies first base coach Glenallen Hill, who once had a bad dream about spiders, so vivid that he woke up, crashed through a glass table and fell down a flight of stairs. Injuries happen frequently in sports, and they're usually no laughing matter, but occasionally, something happens to an athlete that's so bizarre it's funny. Here's my top five weird injuries to athletes. 1. Just a few years ago, while playing in Switzerland, midfielder Paulo Diogo scored a goal and celebrated by hurdling a fence into a crowd of fans. His wedding ring had other ideas, however, and it decided to celebrate with the fence. Diogo's ring finger was torn from his hand. Luckily, he plays soccer. 2. In the mid-'90s, Steve Sparks was a career minor league pitcher hoping for a shot at the big time. He visited a motivational speaker, and after returning home tried to replicate a stunt he'd learned, trying to rip a phone book in half. Unfortunately, the only thing he ripped was his shoulder from its socket. 3. Cavs forward Ira Newble did time in a hospital with a face infection. And his current teammate, Drew Gooden, once was hospitalized with what was originally thought to be a spider bite, but turned out to be an infected leg hair. 4. The wee kicking Gramatica brothers, Bill and Martin, were perhaps best known for their post-kick celebrations, in which they gesticulated wildly, even if they had just booted a 20-yarder to make it a three-touchdown game. This continued until Bill hit a FG to give his Arizona Cardinals a 3-0 lead in a game, and during his revelry, he tore his ACL. 5. A couple of Braves pitchers suffered strange injuries a decade ago: John Smoltz burned his chest while ironing a shirt...a shirt he was wearing at the time. And Tom Glavine allegedly broke a rib while throwing up an in-flight meal. What are your favorite weird sports injuries? Let us know below...

Terry Harper

A Georgia native signed by the Braves as a pitcher in 1973, Harper was made an everyday player in 1976, but it was 1983 before he spent a full season in Atlanta. In July 1982 he dislocated his left shoulder while standing by the plate and enthusiastically waving a runner home. In his one solid season, 1985, he hit 17 homers. He played in Japan after his 1987 release by Pittsburgh.

He was actually starting to play well and pull his game together after a lengthy run of trials and tribulations. But this has to be the dumbest, if not the weirdest injury ever.
His team having scored, Quarterback Gus Ferotte could not contain his excitement and decided to show the home crowd just how pumped he was by head butting a BRICK WALL....yes, head butt a brick wall.
Game over.

Ken Johnson was a journeyman pitcher in the majors but did manage to throw a complete game no-hitter and lose to the Reds. One game invovled a bench clearing brawl where he stood up to rush the field and smashed his head into a dugout beam that embedded the top button of his cap into his head. He then spiked himself attempting to run up the steps and left a gash in his shin. Bleeding from two different places and he hadn't thrown the first punch.

It was Chris Hanson (P, Jaguars) who injured his foot with the ax, not Todd Sauerbrun.

Jack Del-Rio used the saying "Keep chopping wood" that year and placed an oak log in the locker room with an ax. The players took turns "chopping wood" with that ax when Hanson swung it and buried the ax into his non-kicking foot.

I think it was someone from the Browns who missed a game because he had a "swelling in his groin area." I've had that myself and I never wanted to play football then, either.
MacArthur Lane, a running back for the 70s Packers, scored a touchdown, threw the ball up in the air to celebrate, lost his balance in the snowy conditions, and crash landed over a rolled up tarp. I think he had to miss a couple of games.

Stowe,a very sure-handed receiver (unlike T.O.),played in the early 70's. He had just caught a TD pass when workers started raising the net behind the goalpost to keep the ball from going into the stands after the XP.(Believe it or not, they did that back in the day.) As Stowe was returning from the back of the endzone, his foot got caught in the netting, injuring his ankle so badly that he never recovered to play again!
canizares, Spanish goalkeeper. 2 weeks before a world cup he was shaving in the comfort of his own home, dropped the bottle of aftershave, tried to stop it with his foot. the bottle broke and cut his right ankle (achiles) ligaments in about 3 places. He missed the world cup.
