    From AP:

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University officials say basketball coach Bob Huggins has been taken to a hospital in Charlotte, N.C., for precautionary reasons after tripping on an airport tarmac and hitting his head on the pavement.
    Athletic director Ed Pastilong says Huggins had a bump on his head, and never lost consciousness.
    Pastilong says Huggins and other athletic department staff flew to Charlotte on Thursday morning for a Mountaineer Athletic Club event. After Huggins got off the plane, he was checking his cell phone messages when he tripped over a cone on the tarmac and hit his head.

    If only precautionary, why start a thread? Just wondering.

    Why not? A prominent coach taken to the hospital is newsworthy, isn't it?

    As he said, I thought it was newsworthy that a well-known coach had been taken to the hospital.

    Is "fell while checking my cell phone messages" the new euphanism for falling down drunk?

    He must have been weighed down by his wallet after receiving that new contract.

    "Does this count as habitual intoxication?"

    Was it a cone or beer bong?
