You know how sometimes you are playing football and part of your finger falls off and you don’t even realize it until you take your glove off after the game?
Yeah, me neither, but it happened to Rashad Johnson on Sunday.
He isn’t even sure when he lost it.
*blink blink blink*
I can’t even… Listen. I have a small burn on my thumb. I know exactly when it happened. I was taking a pizza out of the oven on Friday at lunch time and I accidentally tapped the element. I got this paper cut while overzealously opening some mail. The bruise on my leg is from where I ran into a drawer I forgot to close in the kitchen. You can bet your bottom fucking dollar I would know exactly when and where it occurred if part of my damn finger fell off.
I don’t think that I am unusual in being sensitive to losing digits.
Then again, I am not a safety for the Arizona Cardinals. Maybe if I had been preoccupied beating the living shit out of the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday I might have missed something like that.
That was mostly for Garvey and Bob. I apologize to the Eagles fans who have not recently harassed me about the Buccaneers.
But still. PART OF HIS FINGER FELL OFF AND HE DIDN’T NOTICE? How is this possible? Did Rashad Johson lose all of his nerve endings in a spinal injury? Hypnosis? PCP?
It isn’t even just that he didn’t notice, it was the nonchalance.
One time I forgot to eat lunch and I didn’t notice until like 3:00 PM. This still stuns me.
Update: I did some more research regarding the incident and it looks like Johnson lost the top part of his left middle finger while tackling Darren Sproles during the Saints game in week two, but I’m not taking out the Eagles part even though I haven’t published this yet because, burn Eagles fans.
*looks around to make sure nobody is throwing batteries*
See? Making fun of Philadelphia sports teams is fun!
But I digress, Rashad Johnson is currently recovering from surgery and being monitored for infection. We wish him a speedy recovery and also more body awareness.
