Guy had massive welt after being hit in head with golf ball

Golf-ball-welt-forehead

Every golfer’s worst nightmare came true for a Swedish man named Joakim Boden recently. No, we’re not talking about missing a two-foot putt when you’re playing your buddy for $20 bucks a hole. Boden was drilled directly in the head with a golf ball.

Despite the monstrous welt the ball left on his forehead, Boden somehow lived to tell the tale. He told golf.se that he was playing a casual round with some friends when something that “sounded like a gunshot” turned out to be a ball striking him in the dome. Look away if you’re squeamish:

Fortunately, Boden was examined at a nearby healthy clinic and did not have any serious injuries. While it is incredibly rare to be hit with a ball, let alone in the head, Boden’s experience is a reminder that you should always cover your head if you hear someone yell “fore!”

Paul George suffers broken leg (Video)

Paul George suffered a broken leg during the USA Basketball scrimmage in Las Vegas on Friday, and there’s no way around it — it was ugly.

George went up to try blocking a fastbreak layup attempt by James Harden in the fourth quarter and his leg landed awkwardly against the backstop.

George’s leg bent like a cartoon and snapped. He was treated immediately and a stretcher was brought out for him.

The video is so ugly we have placed it below.

LSU DT Trey Lealaimatafao suffers serious injury after punching glass window

Trey-LealaimatafaoLSU freshman defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao reportedly suffered a serious arm injury on Monday after he put his fist through a glass window in the team’s weight room. According to Ross Dellenger of the Baton Rouge Advocate, Lealaimatafao was rushed to the hospital after he tore muscles “down to the bone.”

Lealaimatafao allegedly punched through the window after he got into an argument with another LSU football player. Sources told Dellenger he had a “big cut” on his arm that required stitches. The injury was so bad that another person in the weight room reportedly passed out.

Lealaimatafao is likely going to need surgery and could wind up missing his freshman season. The incoming freshman was ranked one of the top 40 defensive lineman in the high school class of 2014.

The gash on Lealaimatafao’s arm was so bad that a source felt the need to tell Dellenger the injury is not career or life threatening. If this was just a minor cut that required a few stitches, I’m guessing no one would be wondering if the arm injury was going to be career-ending.

Lealaimatafao tweeted a photo from the hospital on Tuesday morning and said he is doing well.

Haven’t we learned anything from Amar’e Stoudemire and the brutal hand injury he suffered a couple years ago by punching something? If you’re that angry, just scream. Putting your hand through glass never ends well.

Giancarlo Stanton home run leaves fan’s hand swollen and nasty

Giancarlo-Stanton-homer-fans-hand

The Home Run Derby is the only event of the MLB season where the outfield bleachers are the best seats in the house. You know a home run ball is coming your way at some point, you just have to be willing to make a play on it. Jordan Jacobson did just that, and his hand paid the price.

On Monday night, Jacobson got his hand on one of the Giancarlo Stanton home runs that didn’t travel over 500 feet and almost leave Target Field. He was left with a swollen mess and no souvenir.

“It was extremely painful at first, then went numb after about 15 minutes,” Jacobson told Page Q Sports. “It probably would have felt better if I would have gotten the ball.”

We know grown men bringing gloves to the ballpark is frowned upon, but it would be slightly more acceptible if it’s the Home Run Derby and you’re in Stanton’s path of destruction. Jacobson knows that for next time.

UPDATE: As it turns out, Jacobson actually has a birth defect and did not try to catch a Stanton homer. He admitted on Twitter Thursday morning that he was lying.

Surfer gets nasty shark bite on his hand

Surfer-hand-bitten

Carson Jewell was body surfing off the coast of North Carolina on Saturday when he felt some pressure on his hand. Thankfully, it didn’t hurt when a shark was mangling the 32-year-old’s flipper.

As Jewell told WWAY, he saw a fin sticking out of the water 30 minutes before he was attacked. Rather than taking that as a sign that he should get out of the water, he ignored it and kept catching waves.

“My hand was out, and the next thing I know there was pressure and really rough,” Jewell explained. “It didn’t feel rough. Just felt like I knew exactly what was happening. It didn’t hurt. When I stood up I could feel the body of the shark hitting my legs. It had me no more than two seconds, and there was no time to react, to think about it, or to do anything heroic.”

Jewell remained calm and had some of his friends use a surfboard leash to tie a tourniquet around his hand and slow the bleeding. He was then able to walk to the backside of Masonboro Island, where the attack took place, and was later treated and released from the hospital.

Javier Mascherano tore his anus during Argentina win

Javier-Mascherano-torn-anus

Argentina defender Javier Mascherano laid it all on the line for his country on Wednesday. No, I mean he really, really went all out. Mascherano may have saved the game with a tremendous tackle on Netherlands forward Arjen Robben in the 90th minute to keep the score 0-0. And you know what else happened?

He tore his anus.

Mascherano, who seemed embarrassed, told reporters about the unfortunate injury after the game.

“I do not want to be rude,” he said, as translated by SB Nation. “I tore the anus that play, so the pain…”

Unfortunately, Mascherano is not the first athlete we have featured on LBS that tore his anus. A popular wrestler suffered the same injury last year. The important thing is Argentina is going to the World Cup final. Imagine tearing your anus and losing?

The play where the injury may have occurred can be seen here
