What's Slovakian for "Bleeding from the Head?"

February 24, 2010

Sometimes there are injuries that make us laugh, others that make us cry, and certain ones that force us to wonder “Why couldn’t that happen to anybody on the Yankees?” This particular infliction of pain, however, simply leaves us thankful that the fallen player lived to tell the tale and suit up for another game. This video is not for the squeamish.

As an active subscriber to the NHL DirecTv package and leading scorer of my non-contact adult men’s Burbank Ice Hockey League, I can safely say that this is one of the worst injuries I’ve seen in years and something that will terrify me to the point of using my Tony Amonte nightlight again.


The player, Lubos Bartecko, is in stable condition and in good spirits.
