I remember reading a book about old time football.
Players played with broken ribs throughout the season.
I think one guy played with something like 12-18 broken ribs.

How many ribs are there in the human body anyway, Doc?

Go break 1 rib and see how you feel. The total amount doesn't matter.

Maybe cracked or bruised, but definitely not broken. Broken ribs can lead to life threatening injuries and the pain would be intolerable if a whole slab of human ribs were broken. Anyone who did that is both fyucking nuts and fyuking lucky to be alive. They definitely wouldn't try it with today's 300LB+ Behemoths tracking them down.

24 or so is the normal number of human ribs, I believe.

It's been awhile; I can't recall whether it was cracked or bruised or broken; probably not that many broken ribs.

But hey, they didn't have protective gears back then; there's no telling what happened.

Obsiwan is correct. Yesterday on 610, this question came up.........and it was so amusing to me how many texts to the station stated that there were different numbers of ribs in males vs. females. The bible evidently has confused more than just some out there.
