I damn sure hope those are records that NEVER fall. Unbelievable. Those records should have an asterik next to them due to the worst D in the history of the league.

Personally, I think the pinkie toe is a great toe, but then again that roast beef toe is pretty great also.

Turf toe is not a laughing matter. It really hurts like a bitch whenever you try to move it, let alone, try to put pressure on it. I had it happen to me, and it was very painful.

Bob Dole doesn't think a sprain and turf toe are the same thing. Turf toe is actually a tear in the tissue around the toe joint rather than an injury to a ligament.
