    Pie gone awry: Marlins' Coghlan tears up knee in cream pie attack

    By David Brown

    We are through the looking glass on these postgame celebrations, people. We have our first injury caused by someone giving a shaving-cream pie to the face.

    Florida Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan tore the meniscus in his left knee, and is headed for the disabled list after he face-pied teammate Wes Helms during a TV interview Sunday.

I have several opinions on this but they all conflict, so I will lay out reaction-wise...for now.

An Angels player broke his leg (nbcsports.msnbc.com) in May jumping at home plate after ending the game on a homer.

Back in 2004, Bill Gramatica tore his ACL (cracked.com) celebrating a field goal.

The Lovely Mrs. Tracker continues to mock Sammy Sosa for hurting his back by sneezing too hard (sports.espn.go.com).

OT, but my favorite weird injury was Glenallen Hall of the Toronto Blue Jays, who sleep-walked into a glass table while he was dreaming that spiders were chasing him and ended up cutting his foot.

We covered this one. (The W)

    Back in 2004, Bill Gramatica tore his ACL (cracked.com) celebrating a field goal.
Wikipedia says that was 2001, so I can't point you to a thread for that one here. But here's a passing reference.

We have a passing reference for THAT one, too.

Rather than rehash all the stupid baseball injuries (The 7) and more stupid baseball injuries, I was kinda hoping you'd have an opinion on this PARTICULAR stupid baseball injury?

The Marlins banned all post-game pie activities after this one. I think that's a bit of an overreaction since this seems to be more of a freak injury than anything else.

It likely didn't help that the pie victim was super serious Wes Helms.

I think the Marlins should ban the post-game pie activity just because it looks stupid, to say nothing of the fact that a freak injury happened as a result of one.

EDIT: Of course, if we were banning all the things in sports that look stupid, boy, that'd be a long list.

I don't see how they can move around in cleats anyway. If I tried to jump wearing them, I'd torque a knee too. They may as well be high heels.

Huh? They have to jump wearing cleats all the time during games. Have you worn cleats before? They're really not all that different than regular sneakers as long as you're in a grassy or dirt-filled or muddy surface.

Now, if you're on a flat, slick surface like tile or hardwood, that's a different story. You have to practically tiptoe around to avoid slipping.

Never have I ever.

He asked for an opinion. That's my best shot.

Names including Alex Rodriquez, most notably, along with Gio Gonzalez and others. At some point, we've seen the last of Arod playing professional baseball. If the Yankees can find a way to void his contract, this may be it. http://espn.go.
