so I USED to play rugby....


So I am going to school right now at Thunderbird School of Global Management and working on my MBA in International Marketing. The school is really great and I've been having a lot of fun. Since the school isn't part of an undergraduate university, we don't really have collegiate athletics except for a few club teams, on of which is the Rugby Football Club. I had never played before I came down here, but had played football so I thought I'd give it a try. Well, I had a lot of fun and was really enjoying the hitting until I had the unfortunate event of breaking my ankle. I was carrying to ball and got tackled and rolled on, and my foot twisted out instead of typically rolling in and the tendons on the inside of my foot tore part of the bone off the inside of my ankle. Sounds gross and painful I know, but...well, it is pretty painful. They said I should be down 6 to 8 weeks and hopefully won't need surgery but we'll see. My advice, still play rugby!!!!




Theses are my x-rays, the arrow points to the fracture. I know its small, but it does really hurt.

That's so cool! The x-rays I mean, the break, not so cool. Hope you don't need surgery!

Which would you prefer...breaking your ankle playing rugby or intercepting a pass against box elder and running it back 90 yards to the 5 yard line?
