That Kevin Ware injury in the Louisville Duke game was gruesome.  Looked like a tibia-fibula compound.  Poor guy.

One of the worst things I have EVER seen...

That's the way it is in most countries.

Here is Julian Savea. He is naturally gifted at running over people.
Does that mean I think he's going to dominate the sport of table tennis if he gave up rugby?

Somehow I don't think he'd be particularly good at this:

I've only seen one injury worse.

Not for the faint of heart.

Hendrix, if there was the infrastructure/money/popularity to train in table tennis at an early age in the US, someone like him probably could become pretty good at it. When I referred to naturally gifted young athletes, I was referring to people whose physical gifts translate better to explosive sports. Sports like football and basketball highlight the disparity in physical ability between people. There are other sports that are more forgiving in that regard. You have to take body shape/etc. into account, but you could find some less popular sport equivalent such as wrestling or even shot put or something for someone like him.

Also Regis, did you order the purple Margiela shorts? They look pretty nice.

There's always more popular sports that take the best athletes in every country.

Here, rugby dominates. In eastern Europe olympic weightlifting has a large following. there are probably rugby players and weightlifters who could've been exceptional Gridiron players.

But they're not, and it's stupid to say "if we cared about it, New Zealand could produce teams that would smash the USA at American Football".

If America cared about fashion, our designers would be the best in the world.

Agree with Moo. That's the worst thing I've ever seen on live TV.

These are pretty awful as well (watch at your own peril):
