    The thread about the X Games guy over on Sports and News, along with a Tyrone Prothro blurb on the wire this morning, got me thinking about this. What is the most gruesome sports injury of all-time?
    And I know there's a few I've left off the list (Tim Krumrie and Napoleon McCallum, for sure). But my computer sucks and I can't add them right now.
  2. Robert Edwards's leg injury, while playing flag football ON THE BEACH, is right at the top of my list.

    Jason Kendall's foot basically coming off his leg when he rolled his ankle on first base against the Brewers about 7-8 years ago.

    If Theismann is the runaway winner, Krumrie has to be right there as well... I just about threw up when watching that in the Super Bowl...

    The thing I remember most about Theismann's injury was Lawrence Taylor jumping up immediately after the hit and screaming for a trainer. When the guy who broke your leg freaks out, you know it's bad.

    But Krumrie's injury was his own damn fault. He was trying to trip somebody.

    And McCallum nearly died from his extremely fucked up leg. Brutal stuff.
