Strange sporting injuries ...

There is no need to cause the lad any further trauma so he will be named throughout as " Harry"
Harry was a tenacious but limited midfielder who played in the Sunderland Sunday leagues during the 80s .
Unfortunately for Harry the 80s were the peak for those horrendous multi coloured polyester football shirts .
On a bitterly cold winter morning Harry played his most memorable game - conditions were so bad with an icy wind blowing in from the North Sea , that during the course of the game three players could not cope with the freezing conditions and simply walked off the pitch .
Harry played on - returned to the dressing room at full time - pulled off his polyester shirt together with one of his nipples .
The entire nipple was sheared off - frozen solid to his shirt.
Thankfully this was long before generation snowflake - Harry bravely refused all offers of counselling and therapy and was out drinking the same night .
Was this a one off ? Or are there a generation of players from the 80s now walking around with only one nipple ?
Does anybody know of any other strange sporting injuries ?

My old training partner got penial frostbite on a 3 day adventure run in New Zealand .... He was trapped in a blizzard for 12 hrs and nearly had to have his knob amputated... Luckily for him it got better....

I wonder if that subconsciously happened to me, half an inch less and I would have been a woman

Years ago when I worked at the eye infirmary Stephen Fletcher rocked up claiming he looked down his toaster to see how much the bread was toasted and burnt his eyes. That’s a god honest true story I think at the time I posted a thread saying Fletcher was a doubt for the game tomorrow but couldn’t reveal my source.
