Scary? I think Fark needs a "Too Bad" tag.
2007-08-03 08:15:47 PM  
I guess he'll be tendon to that injury for awhile, eh? eh?

Someone just shoot me and get it over with.

I'd clip 'er.

Duke Sucks.
2007-08-03 08:19:12 PM  
Oh no! His only weak spot!
2007-08-03 08:20:48 PM  
This is news? Who are the L.A. Clippers? Who is Elton Brand?
2007-08-03 08:20:57 PM  
Sounded like a brown paper lunch bag being popped.
2007-08-03 08:22:33 PM  
Somebody post a "He'll get over it" pic.

Pppph. He needs to man up. Come on, you don't need an achilles tendon...
2007-08-03 08:24:09 PM  
L.A. Clippers are they part of the WNBA?
2007-08-03 08:24:12 PM  
Stick a fork in him.

/he's done

/go Duke

What a wimp. He's got another one.
2007-08-03 08:26:55 PM  
Last season, Lakers 42 and 40, Clippers 40 and 42. I remember when the Clippers were a sure doormat and Lakers were a sure 55 plus win team.

Goodnight Funnyman

Nah, if they were a WNBA team it would of been a torn ACL.
2007-08-03 08:28:12 PM  
The star of who?
2007-08-03 08:29:15 PM  
Isn't he a movie producer?

Any relation to Elton John?

I got a nasty paper cut. Now that's scary.

As soon as somebody invents the 10-gauge-over-IP protocol.

What a heartbreaking story. Good thing there was a picture of a large breasted blonde posted below to help easy my pain.
2007-08-03 08:40:15 PM  
I hate when people try to pass off ignorance of sports as some kind of intelligence. Elton Brand has been an MVP candidate for the National Basketball Association's Los Angeles Clippers.

/OMFG, I have no idea what any of that is! I was engaged in intellectual pursuits and cultural enrichment!

Fluid: Oh no! His only weak spot!

Excellent. That's the joke I was trying to think of.

I ruptured my Achilles tendon last year so I'm getting a kick out of these replies...

/No, really
//Honest - stiches one week after surgery (new window - not for wimps)
///Crutches for 16 weeks, physical therapy for 6 months
////Mostly better now - at least I can walk.. :-)

Now that is a painful injury.
2007-08-03 08:56:13 PM  
Denise=impressive physical specimen who will need surgery soon to avoid debilitating physical problems within a few years.

Brand=typical injury-prone dookie who'll continue to burnish K's legacy in street clothes behind the bench.

2007-08-03 08:56:44 PM  
What is this, hockey or something? There are other sports besides baseball, football and striper fishing?

Certainly You Jest: Brand=typical injury-prone dookie who'll continue to burnish K's legacy in street clothes behind the bench.

You, sir, have no idea what you're talking about. I hate dookies with guesto, but Mr. Brand has never been injury-prone and is one of the better players in the Association on and off the court. Tonight, I drink to you, Elton Brand!

/my fantasy team is already sunk and it isn't even training camp

Back to the basement Clipper fans. Future franchise player Shaun Livingstons career is over and now the current franchise players career is over. The Clippers need to sell their souls to the devil like the Celtics did.

Pay the man, Shirley.
2007-08-03 09:05:01 PM  
Those gotta be fake.

/wait, Clippers "star?" How is that possible?
2007-08-03 09:08:16 PM  
L.A. clips toenails? clippers? what? what does this have to do with some guy's tendons? did they use the toenail clippers on it? that would hurt...
2007-08-03 09:11:48 PM  
I remember when headlines on Fark were funny, even just last year. WTF is this?
2007-08-03 09:21:19 PM  
Alton Brown needs to be more careful.
2007-08-03 09:24:08 PM  
"I remember when headlines on Fark were funny"

And it's mysteriously tagged as "scary." What, is this the first of a series of tendon ruptures, each of which will take out a three city block radius with flying basketball-man parts?

/not afeared
//but you might be
