And now, right up there with the guy who walked through a glass door while asleep and the guy who tried to put in his contacts after being jalapenos, we have Marty Cordova.

Mr. Cordova was advised to stay out of day games for the last couple games because he got a bad sunburn from falling asleep in a tanning bed.

Oh, that's GOOD. Still not as good as Jeff Kent injuring himself popping wheelies on his motorcycle and claiming it happened while washing his car (stupid vs. incredibly inept, can't go wrong either way), but still good.

The Jeff Kent thing is dumb, but to me doesn't rival the really stupid classic baseball injuries.

Someone on the Yankees threw his back out once in spring training when he bodyslammed a teammate while they were horsing around in the lockerroom.

Bob Ojeda cut the tip of his finger off while trimming his hedges.

Someone on the Padres I think cut himself in the stomach last year trying to get the plastic off a CD or DVD.

Someone strained his back by sitting too long in a recliner.

Vince Coleman got run over by the tarp before a game in the 1985 World Series.

All good points. I think I'm sticking by Kent's as the funniest and dumbest, though, just because the cover story he gave was even dumber than the actual cause of the injury.

Speaking of the Padres, though. Am I the only one who remembers Chris Brown in the late 80's getting scratched from the lineup for a few games because he "slept on his eye wrong"? And, of course, Tony Gwynn injuring his hand and missing several games by closing his car door on it.

I think it was Pedro Guerrero who once hurt himself wrestling with his kids.

Let's never forget Glenallen "Arachnophobia" Hill, who sleep-walked through a glass table in his home. He was apparently having a terrifying dream about spiders at the time.

I liked the player from Baltimore that threw his arm out waving someone home.

For football the Seahawks signed a cornerback from the Bills about 10 years ago. He stepped on a football in practice and tore up his knee. I don't think he ever played again.

We can't forget Sosa for missing the All-Star game for sleeping on one of his arms causing some type of soreness.

'Twas Adam Eaton. And I believe the player who injured himself in the recliner was on the Marlins.

Who was the guy that burned himself while ironing a shirt at the same time he was wearing it? For some reason, the name John SMoltz sitcks in my mind as the player involved in that.

It was indeed Smoltzie.

Not surprisingly, a bunch of columnists around the country wrote the "stupid injury" column last week and I saw that mentioned in a bunch of them.

Last Thursday night on Sportscenter,they played a game called "Whaddaya Have!" which went through all the injuries.It was Dan Patrick and Rich Eisen(I think) that were playing and the game was hosted by Bill Pieto.They went through all of the ones you all have mention before.It was funny.

BTW:
DAN PATRICK IS THE MAN!!!!

I seem to recall Glenalen Hill having another spider-related injury, but I can't recall what it was. All of us here in southern Ontario got a couple of good yuks out of the glass table incident though.

I think maybe a spider got in the shower with Hill and he freaked out and injured himself somehow.

Then there's Sandy Alomar, Jr., who *drove* from Ohio to Florida for Spring Training in the early 90's and as a result was out with a back injury for a couple of weeks.

According to the Sporting News, Kevin Brown got his latest back injury while lunging to keep his kid from falling off of a bed.

I read one last night in this week's SI that I was going to post, but I forgot what it was. If I remember, I'll post it later.

The great thing about this thread is that you can bet they'll be an addition or two a week. :>

EDIT: Matt Anderson, Tigers' relief pitcher, tore a muscle in his shoulder after participating in an octopus-throwing contest held at Not Tiger Stadium. He was allegedly trying to win Wings playoff tickets.

I saw that report also and it stated emphatically that he didn't reinjure himself throwing the octopi. Which of course means that's exactly what he did!

You can't forget:
Rich Gossage throwing his back out with a sneeze.
Juan Gonzales hurting his back while tying his shoes.
Ken Caminiti fracturing a vertabra while falling out of a duck blind.
Ken Griffey, Jr. skipping a game in Seattle because his wrist was sore after playing too much Nintendo.
Chris Brown with the old "Fly in the Eye" excuse when he played for the Giants.

1. True 2. Debatable. Pedro had just the same reputation of throwing inside when he was in the NL, and actually, you know, had to hit(from what I've read), Unlike your boy Roger. He hit Jeter on the back hand.
