Just to send you into spasmodic shaking BSMS, at a rugby game in NZ a player was tackled and dislocated his leg....the EMT put the leg back in and the player started screeching so loud that everyone started looking at the sideline where he was......one of his testicles had entered the socket hole for his femur (I think that's the name for it - the thigh bone) and when the EMTs put the leg back in it crushed his testicle....apparantly he screamed so loud he broke vocal chords.
To make it even WORSE... During another rugby game, a guy (Wayne Shelford) had his scrotum ripped open by a cleat and his testicle was hanging out.
What did he do? Have the side medic stitch him back up and then WENT BACK OUT TO PLAY.
From the wikipedia article:
he was caught at the bottom of a rather aggressive ruck, and an errant French boot found its way into Shelford's groin, somehow ripping his scrotum and leaving one testicle hanging free. He also lost four teeth in the process. Incredibly, after discovering the injury to his scrotum, he calmly asked the physio to stitch up the tear and returned to the field before a blow to his head left him concussed. He was substituted and watched the remainder of the game from the grandstand where he witnessed the All Blacks lose 16–3. To this day Shelford has no memory of the game.
AND to be on topic - I don't care for rodeos. I am well aware that not all of them cause injury to animal or human, but. It's not my thing.
The worst I've seen (heard of firsthand) -My school has a rodeo every year, it's a huge event. Last year, there was a group talking about how one of the calves got roped around the neck and when the rider jumped off, the horse spooked and took off, dragging the calf behind it. It didn't make it. Another ended up getting trampled and broke a leg. The group thought it was hilarious, and the rider of the dragged calf didn't bother trying to catch his horse because 'he'll stop on his own eventually.' (Calf roping is one of those sports that I think is a bit inhumane, myself).
Different parts of rodeos score differently with me. Some I am very against. Some I am neutral towards. Overall, I wouldn't go to a rodeo, but in general will not look down on those who choose to.
