    A week ago I broke my right middle finger (3rd Meta Carpal) in a fight and now today my buddy collapsed on the squat machine and I got my left index finger (2nd Phalange) jammed in between the barbell and the rack. My finger is the size of and apple and now I have two splints on... sigh... and whats worse is I have the Provincial Junior Snooker Championships this Sunday, and it doesn't look like I will be able to defend my title.

    Aw, Av, I'm sorry to hear this.......
    But perhaps there is a bright side to this!
    Look at it this way, it'll give you more sympathy from chicky-poo at the gym!
    Word of advice--milk it for all it's worth

    I'm sorry to hear that bro, I broke my hand in the gym a year ago and it wasn't fun. Sav's right, for once , this may be your opportunity for the hottie in the gym. I hope things get better for you, peace bro.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    Hulk and Fangel: if I ever make it to the crucible, i'll get you two free tickets!

    Ryuage: Snooker is the british form of pool (billiards). Its played on a bigger table with smaller balls and pockets than the american tables.

    RisingPhoenix: Yep, I won the fight
