this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
OT: Joey Harrington injured in bike accident
There is nothing funny about a guy getting hit by a car dude. Nothing.
His Dad was joking about it on TV, saying Joey was in good spirits about it. I would never be serious about joking about a guy getting hit by a car. I made the joke only after hearing his Dad joke about it.
Coming from a family that has lost several members to car accidents, I would never seriously joke about it.
A joke is a joke.....Why is everyone so fucking sensitive? ??? Get over it...
I mean, too soon.
Holy fucking stupidity. What, no rape jokes to follow that one up?
You may call yourself "Wolverine in a bag," but you certainly don't act like a Wolverine. You trolled an ex-Michigan player and made fun of someone who is in the hospital in one pathetic excuse for a "joke."
Why don't you change your name to "Sparty in a bag?"
It's a good thing it wasn't Lloyd Carr that got hit by a car, because it would have been you who started this thread. I can only imagine the Carr-tel jokes you would have found a way to slip in.
the Olentangy Mafia and shamateurism.
I do apologize if it offended anyone. It may not have been at all serious, and came only after hearing his family joke about it, but it was in poor taste. I have also edited it, and do again apologize.
No big deal. You had more information than we did at the time. Your link didn't work, so all we knew was that Harrington got hit by a car on a bike.
joey will be ok. He's been hit harder playing for the lions. he will just walk this one off. get well joey.
I was hit by a car and suffered the exact same injuries and a year later I'm still hurting and sore from it. I hope his recovery goes well and that he can come back strong from this.
Well, that was disappointing. All this outrage, then then OP changes the post. Man, I miss the crude jokes.
Rabble, rabble, rabble!
(I didn't get to read the joke since the OP edited it but I still wanted to chime in with my two cents. Anyone know if he was wearing a helmet?)
IDK, was the driver texting?
The helmet question is a pet peeve, as it has nothingg to do with the accident (assuming the driver hit him) and somehow puts the blame on the cyclist. At any rate, a helmet provides little protection for impacts above appox 10 mph.
The driver on the phone/texting/emailing is a great question. But you cannot discount the helmet question. There are state laws requiring bikers to wear helmets for a reason. Not that it applies in this accident, but I definitely have less sympathy for a biker that sustains a head injury who wasn't wearing a helmet (regardless of the alleged ineffectiveness over 10 MPH). That said, if the driver was breaking a law he/she should definitely be prosecuted.
anyone know the whereabouts of Matt Millen? I mean it would not be like the first time Millen nearly killed this guy.
I hope he recovers fine. Bike riders in Portland are assholes on the road. I'm just sayin'. Except the chick that rides around town naked. She is cool.
Picture of the naked bike-riding lady or it never happened . . .
