This thread is a bit slow out of the blocks. It could be just a hop, skip, and a jump away from a full on vault...

Wait, forget the puns. Bring on the pole-vaulters!

Was he HIT in the head too?

At the very least, he could hammer out a deal. Two years is quite long, justice should be swift and not a marathon. I wish we could relay that message to the court system.

Weeners FTA got it: "Isn't anybody responsible for themselves anymore?"
My sentiments exactly.

Question 1: "Bystanders should be allowed to sue when they are hit in the head by an errant athletics missile".

Discus.

All these puns, but we're jumping the gun when clearly the shot put him in clear danger. Being said, the discus thrower deserves a medl-ey one of these dais, although they will find it a steeplechase.

Perhaps submitter meant to say:

Man sues after being 'it in the 'ead with a discus. Says 'e faces 'urdles daily and has now 'ired a P.R. firm to track and field calls from the media. The bar is set 'igh, but 'e thinks 'e can win 'is case.

So he was in a ship's restroom, and there was a frisbee in there with him? What's the big deal?

My brother knocked a kid off his bike with a disc. Kid got up with a bit of a whimper, jumped on his bike, rode off. Great kid.

I hit a kid with a discus once at a high school track meet. Out comes the ambulance, he went to the hospital and we had one less competitor.

5+ lb metal ringed discus? That's some kinda rotary club...

Fmr disc/shot/hammer thrower. Kicks and all...

Loving the puns. Missing the throwing.

On a more serious note though, why was this guy not behind the fence or, I don't know, actually watching the heavy, metal-rimmed object fly through the air? Either this guy is trying to get a Darwin Award, or there is more to this story.

Wait, if you get beaned with a discus, does the doctor check to see if you have a discussion?

/Nothin'

Came into complain. Got being hit in the head lessons instead.

I teach a student who got hit in the face with a discus just last week. he had surgery today to repair his eye socket.

Bravo, subby.

What kind of retard goes to a track meet, and is close enough to the discus ring to be hit, and then sues?

It's not like they put the rings where a spastic throw is going to careen into the crowd or anything.
