Whaddup NS. I figured this story is legendary enough to warrant its own thread.
Way back in 2006, my friend cam and I were shredding under the chairlift at our local hill. It was absolutely prime spring skiing weather; the sun was out, the snow was slushy, and there was a slight breeze.
I was skiing in jeans, and Cam was rocking baggy track pants. It was total tee shirt weather and we were making the most of it.
Then disaster struck. Cam and I were training off a small drop underneath the chairlift. It was at most four feet high. When I turned around to see if Cam was behind me after hitting the drop, I saw him lying on the landing, rolling around in agony. Being the young punk I was, I naturally yelled at him to stop being such a pussy and get up.
Eventually he did get up and ski down to where I was standing, but by the ashen expression on his face I knew something was wrong. When he reached in his pants and brought his hand out...there was blood. With a look of utter terror on his face, Cam exclaimed "dude...dude...I ripped my nut sack. I'm bleeding man. I gotta go to the hospital"
When Cam had landed, one of his skis had punched through the soft corn snow and had somehow bent his leg back, effectively allowing the tail of his ski to harpoon his jewels. Needless to say this near neutering experience was more than a little discomforting.
So to the hospital Cam went. His mom drove him there in their Toyota minivan, and Cam later told me the nurse who sewed up his balls was extremely unattractive. He got four stitches, and he also told me his balls swelled up to the size of a softball.
I figured I'd share this story with NS. Post up gnarly injuries you have had if you feel like it.
