Are you asking a question? Was football part of it?

It took me a few moments that I'll never get back but I think I figured out what you really meant to say. Is this it?

Any information about this would be appreciated,

1 blown knee in high school football, the other knee blown skiing, both shoulders crapped up from kayaking. 3:1 I asked the doctor when I was about 40 why everything was starting to fall apart and he said "thats the price you pay for being active"

does hurting your liver count as an injury?

Yes, unless it is caused by drinking, then it is actually considered a form of Hepatitis.

Sometimes it's fun to post and read silly, irrelevant stories. My river injuries:
Twice fell so hard on some rocks that my entire butt turned a dark purple and I could hardly walk. I was stone sober both time. On a Grand trip some finger tips were shredded when I was under the boat. They were stitched up on a beach and I didn't row again.

I never played team sports but have had plenty of sprains, abrasions, and bruises biking, skiing, hiking, etc. loving the outdoors.

Gamer, youre off the MountainBuzz script, dude.

You gotta stick to topics on coolers, groover maintenance or if the Pumphouse to State Bridge run is too low in a xx raft/cataraft at xxx cfs.

Maybe work into every other post that you have a Yeti cooler, too.

Im here to help.

Worst I ever got on a river trip was a broken foot. Slipped on a rock while scouting. I have had WAY worse from down hill mountain biking, and power tools. ( The kind that takes 5 minutes till you can make yourself look at what ya just did to yer self!!)
