Yeah, if you haven't seen it...brace yourselves...it's nasty looking.

I feel so bad for him. I wanted so badly to see him be able to run around like a little kid and celebrate a World Series title.

My wife made me change to Nip/Tuck so I missed it, thank goodness.

Thanks to new technology you can now see a calf snap and roll up like a window shade. That didn't look like a "day-to-day" type of thing.

At this point they are just calling it a muscle spasm in the calf and saying he could just miss a couple of days. So that sounds better than it looked.

That was one heller of a spasm, eh? I don't have anything close to high-def, but that looked nasty. I hope he's okay,I'm rootin' for him and the Kitty's.

That was some spasm then.

I looked like a squirrel ran up his pants leg.

I had a major back spasm during a football game. You wouldn't believe how painful and scary it is.

It can take days or even weeks to get better. Hopefully Sean is fine.

Oh man! I stopped watching the game for a half hour and upon turning it back on I noticed that he wasn't playing 1st anymore, I wondered what happened. I'm actually really sad right now. :(

It looked nasty on 13" TV even.

That exact thing happened to me once during a play two years ago. It was the most painful thing that's ever happened to me, not because it was in and of itself was so awful, but because the snap of it, in a high-adrenaline moment, just shoots up to your brain. And you have to deal with it until you get away from the plate (or off the stage). I had a trainer deal with me afterwards, but had to finish that play limping like a goddurn invalid and trying not to cry the whole way. It was horrible.

But as others have noted, it can be dealt with. The pain is awful, but if nothing is actually damaged, it's just dealt with through therapy and massage and stretching, which can help in a matter of days. It's not something that has to heal over a long period of time like a sprain or a break. And its effects shouldn't come back to haunt him either.

I'm sooooo sad... :( Figures that this would happen the night before I have tickets to see him play. I'm still going to wear his jersey to the game, though!!!

It wasn't that nasty. You see much uglier stuff in a football game. Besides, it looks like he should be back soon enough.

A friend of mine showed me video of pro wrestler Sid Vicious breaking his leg during a match. Maybe the sickest thing I've ever seen.

Tim Krumrie in the Super Bowl. Never seen a man wave with his foot before.

I'm not sure Theisman's injury was any worse than Krumrie's, or Napoleon McCallum snapping his leg in half. Not to say that Theisman's is pleasant to watch, I get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it.

The Sid Vicious one was just flat-out horrifying.

Napoleon McCallum's leg bending like a dog's hind leg was pretty nasty.

TIGERS NOTEBOOK
Hobbled Casey out for a while

Playoffs 2006







Tigers first baseman Sean Casey wore a walking boot on his left foot after Tuesday night's game, will not play tonight and could miss the rest of the American League Championship Series with a calf injury.
Casey, the No. 3 hitter in Detroit's lineup, awkwardly hobbled out of the batter's box on his sixth-inning groundout. He limped off the field and did not take his position for the bottom of the inning. Casey will have an MRI exam on his calf today, but manager Jim Leyland said it's "100 percent" Casey will not play in Game 2.
Leyland called Casey's chances of playing in Game 3 "a longshot."
"It felt like it popped coming out of the box," Casey said. "I thought I got hit with the bat, or maybe (A's catcher Jason) Kendall punched me. ... I swung and really felt a good jolt in my calf." Casey said he had a similar injury to his calf a few years ago, and he missed a little more than a week. A comparable absence would knock him out for the duration of the ALCS, though it's possible he could return for the World Series if the Tigers advance.
