Since Stephen Garcia could not manage to stay out of trouble at South Carolina and never lived up to his potential, his post-college career is set to begin in the CFL. He is the fourth quarterback on the roster, so it’s safe to say the Montreal Alouettes are not expecting huge things from the former Gamecock. In any event, Garcia started his tenure with the team by being placed on the one-game injured list last week after he hurt his fingers. But this was not just any finger injury.
According to the Montreal Gazette, Garcia injured his two fingers by flashing the peace sign when he got off the team bus. This may be some sort of brilliant joke that the Alouettes are playing on the public, but if so they are not letting on.
That’s literally all the report says aside from some stuff about how Garcia was suspended five times during his days at South Carolina. We already knew all that, so let’s focus on the real story here. How the hell does someone injure their fingers giving the peace sign? Was it the most agressive peace sign flashing known to mankind? Did someone who doesn’t like peace grab his fingers and twist them? Was he drunk? Okay, that’s a cheap shot, but we can’t really rule anything out when it comes to hurting your fingers by throwing your deuce up.
And we thought this ridiculous list of injuries was entertaining.
