Reporter-on-athlete locker room violence

    Interesting story, painful injury... somewhat over-the-top self righteousness on the blog posting, but oh well.


    Blackburn, the Giants' third-year backup middle linebacker and a special-teams contributor, was cleaning his ear with a Q-Tip after the win over the Eagles when someone slammed into his arm, shoving the Q-Tip into his ear canal and nearly puncturing his eardrum. The swab was forced into the wall of the canal, causing plenty of bleeding inside Blackburn's ear. His hearing has also been affected, but doctors have told him it should return to normal once the blood dissipates. He practiced yesterday and today, and he is expected to play on Sunday against the Jets.

    ...That's why today I'm calling out the individual who disrespected the code of the locker room and nearly damaged this kid's hearing for the rest of his life.
