Default Tailgate Injury Report

Look...just like preseason is for the team, but its all for the tail gaters too. We are all bound to get hurt or do someting stupid. Injuries are worth bonus points

Here's the place you post which tailgating gear (and you can include people...but be nice) you have that is on Injured Reserve. Please explain what happened to your gear or your friend and if they will be able to make i back before the end of preseason (why or why not).

I'll start with one of us. On of our members went out on injured reserve by opening too many beers for us to shotgun. He missed 3 weeks wirh limited movemet of this thumb before he came back. Everyone is waiting to see if he is as 'strong' when he gets back to beer opening full time.

So what's your tailgating mishap? All Colors welcome!!

BTW - you could add someone hit my car...someone stole my beer....GET CREATIVE!!!

In tailgate camp earlier this year, my Texans canopy was put on the CUP ( canopy unable to perform list ). During a BBQ a freak storm came up and had one of its legs broken in two places. Am in search of a replacement before regular season starts.

I had to place my canopy on the CUP list also. It wasn't from whenever the wind kicked up - as we were able to manage holding it down. The injury occurred while breaking down at around 6:00....

It was my second canopy in under 7 years. My next canopy will be purchased with highly incentive laden clauses (i.e. freakin' warranty).

Well, I guess my sweet little old canopy deserves an Olympic medal then. Been ridin around in the back of various trunks, trucks, and buses for going on seven years now, and STILL manages to "get it up" when it see's platinum!! Not quiet ready for the CUP list, just yet anyway!

I do have a MIA though!! A GIRL fan took my brand new TEXAN labeled ice chest TWO years ago and won't give it back!! I've never been able to find another one like it either!! I just have to believe that little old ice chest worked it's magic and made that Cowboy see the light! Is that possible???

I am still suffering from PTTS(Post Traumatic Tailgate Syndrome) from the '06 Christmas Eve game against the Colts. I had severe frost bite from reaching into the ice chest waaaay too many times durring freezing temps. I have recovered physically, but mentally I am still working through it. When I close my eyes I can still see the 5-man shotgun 30's clear as day.

My portable gas grill is currently on the preseason PUP list. During offseason OTA's it was discovered the burner is clogged with grease from last season and needs to be scoped. Worst case scenario it may need full burner replacement surgery. We expect it to be ready by the home opener. By no means is this a carreer ending injury.

My camo pants had a sprained side pocket that's had a hole in it and it's getting bigger. I have to be very careful to remember not to put my keys or wallet in there, as a fumble of that magnitude could cost Team TDC a ride home.

But, they'll be o.k., as my wife is a good physical therapist and can work wonders with a needle and thread. The pants are expected to be ready for the Tampa Bay pre-season game.

I have officially placed the "grill to go" on retired/inactive list and sent in the official retirement papers to the head office. After numerous grilling activities, she's got no flame left.

RIP, and hopefully you'll be a first ballot grill of fame inductee.

The finger nail on my right index finger was quite sore after opening so many beers at the first tailigate party. Typical overuse injury. It shouldn't affect gameday performance at future tailgates though. I just checked the depth chart and I'm stacked 10 deep at that position. One of them will be ready to play.

My flag pole and texan flag are now MIA due to a SOB walking around the ORANGE lot. The poles career is now done and must be replaced by a rookie.

It's partly my fault. It was the only piece of tailgating supplies that was not put away. DAMN!!!!

Default Re: Tailgate Injury Report

We seem to have the same problem with canopies that the Texans have had at LT.

We are currently on our FOURTH one. Now granted, Jungle Bob has been known to use them in off-season conditioning activities, and as a result, the weather took one of them out when he left it to the elements overnight. The other two that went to the CUP list were taken out in the line of duty. High winds caught both of them un-anchored in the yellow lot. They were brutal, ugly injuries, too. One of them got left on the field, obviously beyond rehab. The other was taken into a conditioning program by the Captain, replaced with a bionic leg, and currently handles light duty activities.

The current canopy is a second year vet, and the coaches are watching him closely. Since I drafted him, I take every precaution to prevent him from staying out late or performing in dangerous weather conditions. He also got an upgrade of 5-lb. anchors for each leg, and has a reinforced skeleton to maximize it's potential. I think *knocks on wood* that he should be our starting canopy for many years to come.
