Talk About Gruesome

Derrick Roland is a senior guard on the Texas A&M basketball team, but last night was likely his last game in college after he suffered a BRUTAL double fracture of his fibula and tibia. Roland underwent surgery today getting an iron rod inserted into his leg. Unfortunately, because of the extent of his injuries and the need for immediate surgery, and it being an away game in Washington, Roland is stuck in Seattle for the time being. His basketball career is likely over after such a devastating injury. If you’re squeamish, I wouldn’t check it out.

UW Gets a Kick out of Football

I was once arrested wearing a pair of University of Washington boxers and essentially nothing else, so while I may not have an affinity for UW, I would say I pay more attention to them than anyone else. Of course, that doesn’t mean I watch their games, I don’t.

Had I seen this week’s contest against the University of Arizona I would have been able to see this incredible interception live. Junior linebacker Mason Foster is out in zone coverage and when an errant pass hits the receiver on the foot and pops up in the air he just happens to be in the vicinity leading to a unique pick-6. Or more acccurately, a kick-pick-6.

UW UA GameIf you’d like to see the actual video of this, it’s available here, just fast forward to the 2:45 mark.
