This weekend I plyed at my favorite woodsball field around here, using my favorite gun (phantom), and I had been looking foward to this day for weeks, it would be my first time to this field in almost a year.

day starts off great, not doing as well as I expected, but I wasn't used to having to account for wind. I play a few games and we play a few rounds of "take the fort"

well, in this game, the fort is in the middle of the field, the attackers start at one point, but have a decent run almost all the way around.

The ref starts the game and I just run full out making it almost to the opposite side, I was in a key position to get the people in the fort.

Just as I get to the spool i'm going to use as my first bunker i start to slow down and go into a slide (on purpose) just a regular baseball slide on some leaves so it was fairly easy. As I was sliding, I suddenly hit a dirt patch and my foot caught the ground, and still pointing foward, turned 90* to the outside. I thought I broke my ankle, when In fact I just injured it, but the force of my ankle whippin to the side actually broke a bone in my leg

Of the two in the lower leg, it was the non-loadbearing one, luckily for me. i finally got the x-rays back and as you all know, bones are shaped like this ======3 from the spot where the straight part and the round part come together, it is broken about 60* up my leg from that point


my weekend sucked, atleast I can spend plenty of time talking in the chat


I'll get the x-rays up ASAP

remember, always be careful when sliding




ok, no x-rays available yet, but i finally have pictures, this is from today, just over a month after it was broken

that's why i slide with my feet up, like you're trying to spike the second baseman on a doubleplay ball to short.

Don't try to pronounce the second "o". Instead, try realize the truth: there is no second "o"

Really a good reminder to be careful when you slide. That sucks about your ankle.

Sliding is no joke. I tore a whole in my knee on day 1 of a 26 hour game. 7 stitches were need.

This video shows a bit of it. You can see me lift my pant leg, throw my DM5 down and then people working on my leg on the field. If you don't like blood you might not wanna watch.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

i yelled for about a minute and a half for the ref to stop the game, when he finally did and came over he didn't seen to know what to do and I ended up giving orders like "you, go get bear" and "you, in my right pocket I have a barrel cover, please go over behind that bunker and empty the breech then put on the cover." and "you, can I use your pack to support my leg? thanks" another one was "AHHHHHHHH! DON'T MOVE IT!!!!!!" i was surprized how calm I was and I seemed to know exactly what to do

I also sent someone to get my phone so I could call my parents
