Rockies' OF Leaves Questions
About Huggins' Seven-Rib Injury
One Great Season
Sorry to bag on the bedridden, but OGS reader Barry called in Sunday night to pose a very good question.
If Colorado Rockies outfielder Dexter Fowler, at 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, broke one rib after sprinting and leaping into a wall while making a game-saving catch Sunday, how did Bob Huggins, at 6-3 and probably no lighter than 250, break seven ribs during a fall in a hotel room -- in Las Vegas, of all places -- last week?
Surely Fowler, only 24 years old, is in far better physical health than Huggins. But when Camp Huggs insists he broke four ribs while packing his bags, then later insists he actually broke seven ribs because he took medication on an empty stomach and got dizzy, you can't help but wonder if the West Virginia basketball coach was getting his Tony Soprano on all over Sin City.
I certainly wish Huggins well as he recovers, but I don't think Barry and I are the only ones still curious to know what really happened.
And there's more great rib video below in Chris Rock's "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" appearance:
