i was watching an arsenal game, very close to pitch level. one of my favorite players, alexander hleb, got a knee injury. he’s the type of player that is very crafty with his ball skills, so he gets kicked a lot, so this wasn’t uncommon. for some reason though, the medical staff decided that the best treatment was to shove a metal spike through his leg so that he couldn’t bend his knee, and then they sent him out on the field. i was yelling at him, “ALEX, DON’T RUN! YOU’VE GOT A METAL SPIKE IN YOUR LEG!” but he didn’t listen D: it was sad.
inspiration: numerous injuries were hurting my favorite football team.
