    Dislocated ankle, not foot. Randy, that’s the injury I got on the U of I quad ding an acid drop in winter 85.Remember? My foot was turned in 90 degrees. I snapped mine back into place myself and hobbled to the emergency room. I was laid up for months. It’s worse than a break because you tear all of the ligaments and tendons in your ankle and they take forever to heal, and often it never heals 100%.

      Dislocated shoe….

      So true,Neil;that last thing you say,about the ligaments.

  2. Ouch! Tendons are the worse thing ever to wreck. Ask my knee… Heal well Mike!!

  3. Oh man, that looks painful! Wishing you a QUALITY recovery Darkness!

  4. Damn, couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. (About whom I’ve even heard a good-skating lesboeen say “That’s my guy!”.) I’m a little surprised it happened to such a rubberman, though… but I guess he’s got more rubber in his style than in his tendons… but, hopefully enough.

  5. that photo makes me want to barf.

    Seriously, dislocated seems like the understatement of the year. Jesus, it looks brutally cartoonish, like an “acme” steamroller driven by some random squarejaw just ran over it. Or it was crumpled in giant gears.
    Is that Tacate Seedy is drinking?

    The doc at the hospital popped his foot back in place, put him in a cast, and released him back to us. He continued on the trip. Never complained.
