    Soriano and the five dumbest on-field injuries in sports

    [size=13pt]Soriano and the five dumbest on-field injuries in sports[/size]

    It's official. According to the Chicago Tribune's Hardball, Alfonso Soriano and his .175 batting average have been placed on the Cubs' 15-day disabled list after straining his right calf. The injury happened right after Soriano landed from the "bunny hop" he habitually performs while catching fly balls.

    1. Gus Frerotte
    (NFL)— Fifty years from now, the lasting memory of Goofy Gus won't be that he was fr'real or that he played (poorly) for seven different NFL teams. It'll come in that he knocked his own ass out in the same game that Michael Westbrook decided he was morally opposed to helmets and would prefer MMA in the future instead.

    This is a very good list. Being from St. Louis and a pretty big Cardinals fan (though a bigger S.F. Giants fan) ... I remember the Vince Coleman tarp thing even though I was only 7 years old. It cost him the NLCS and the World Series, where if he had played ... no one would know the name of Don Denkinger and his blown call that cost the Cards the series, because St. Louis would have probably won in four or five games.

    Yeah, I remember that too...Don Denkinger, what a bad call.

    What I remember most was Andujar losing it in the 7th game.
