OK, so my interest was sparked with the thread on Drogba's broken/dislocated elbow/arm. And it was mentioned that a couple people have played soccer with broken arms. I'm under the impression that you could definitely play soccer with a broken arm, in a cast, probably just couldnt do throw ins.
I've seen NFL linemen play with casts, and in some cases even backs.
Recently Duncan Keith got 7 teeth knocked out, missed 10 minutes of actual time, and played the rest of the hockey game. And that's about the 300th most-crazy played-with hockey injury I've ever heard of.
Do you think that soccer players can play with broken arms? What's the craziest sports injuries you've ever heard of/seen that people played with?
2 more hockey stories - Don't remember the player, but there was a guy back in the 50s-60s playing in the stanley cup game 7, who blocked a shot with his ankle, shattered his ankle. He went into the locker room, got his ankle taped (didnt take off his skate cuz he couldnt have gotten it back on) and ended up scoring the game winning goal. Baller.
Terry Sawchuck, he's got plenty of stories, but my favorite is one time Bobby Hull took a slap shot (with the new curved sticks, which were not regulated, and shots could hit about 100mph+) that hit Sawchuck in the shoulder. The shot knocked him unconscious... through his SHOULDER (shoulder pads back then were pretty much felt). They revived Sawchuck, and asked him if he was ok. His response? "I stopped the F#$%KING shot didnt i?" He finished the game. Ridiculous.
Who's got good stories? Can soccer players play with broken arms? Discuss.
