Think you’re having a bad day?

Ran across this image on the web site of Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, and since it makes me cringe, it must be worth sharing.

Broken Leg

I hope he’ll make a full recovery.

And yes, soccer is statistically speaking one of the most dangerous sports to play.

Here’s a translation of the article’s lede:

Fabijan Cipot, 28, hoped to play his way to a contract with Norwegian [soccer] club Brann.

Instead, his career may be over after a dirty tackle during a friendship game against Birmingham.

“It’s the worst thing I’ve seen in my entire career,” says Brann midfielder Paul Scharner to [Norwegian newspaper] Verldens Gang.
