This is a question Sporting Woe

In which we ask a bunch of pasty-faced shut-ins about their exploits on the sports field. How bad was it for you?

Thanks to scarpe for the suggestion.

Two sports attempted, two hospital trips followed
Ok the first one is technically not sport related but I was going home from doing it so I say it counts.In my youth I, along with my brother, decided learning Jiu-Jitsu (or however it's spelled) would make us ninjas or some such. Anyway, after going for a few months and not being utterly horrible at it I was a happy chap. One evening I was making the journey home and jumped over a low wall by the sports centre it took place at. I landed a little heavily so put my right hand down to steady myself. It turns out a broken bottle was right at that point of the floor and went right through the skin and muscle etc. of the palm of my hand and revealed the tendons to my thumb and index finger. I was, understandably a little upset at this and ran home and then got a taxi to hospital with my mum. I've still got the stitches somewhere. I never went back to Jiu-Jitsu due to a fear of damaging my hand.

The next one was when I was 16, the week before my GCSE's were to begin to be a bit more precise. I was in goal during the regular Friday afternoon P.E. session which was football as it happens. Anyway, I was in goal and had just saved an effort on goal, I was actually lying on the floor for a second or two and was about to get up when some utter bastard decided that the ball was available to kick and jumped on me. the crack my collarbone made when it broke was described by the teacher in charge as being 'like a gunshot'. Needless to say the parental units were informed and off to hospital again for me. The fucker never did apologise. Still, it got me a bit of lee-way with the GCSE scores/time allowances due to not being able to write very well.

tl;dr (1) Hand plus broken glass = don't go to Jiu-Jitsu again.
(2) Broken collar bone while playing football leads to GCSE success.
