Athletes get hurt all the time. But only a select few manage to self inflict injuries while celebrating.
There was Redskins quarterback Gus Frerotte who was so fired up over a touchdown against the Giants in 1997 that he head-butted a cement wall behind the end zone. His reward? A strained neck and trip to the hospital.
And who could forget Cardinals kicker Bill Gramatica jumping for joy after nailing a game-winning field goal in 2001 - and tearing his ACL in the process. He was out of the NFL within three years.
More recently, in 2009, we witnessed Angels star Kendrys Morales break his leg celebrating a walk-off grand slam. He hasn't played since.
Now, improbably, a French golfer has somehow managed to add his name to the list.
Thomas Levet was so ecstatic about winning the French Open on Sunday that he jumped into a lake to celebrate. Turns out the poor guy shattered his shin bone in the process.Quel dommage, Monsieur Levet.
The 42-year-old, who is now pondering his exuberance in a leg cast, might miss next week's British Open as a result.
We probably shouldn't mock Levet too much though. After all, Tiger Woods is going to miss the British Open too - and at least Levet has a victory to his credit this year.
