Kevin Ware seems to be taking this snapped tibia thing a whole lot better than most people who had their Final Four dreams shattered along with such a gruesome injury.
The University of Louisville guard has been all over the television screen ever since he had his broken leg surgically-repaired last weekend and even appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman last night to present the Top 10 List for: "Thoughts going through Kevin Ware's mind at the moment of his broken leg."
It might seem to be just a tad morbid (too soon?) but the Cardinals player was in good spirits when he did the interview from his Atlanta location.
Ware started with No. 10: "What was that cracking sound?" and ended with "At least my bracket's not busted" as No. 1.
Kind of dark, but still pretty funny.
On a more serious note, Ware said the first real thought he had when he broke his leg was about getting in touch with his mother.
See the full Top 10 List below:
10. What was that loud cracking sound?
9. I hope this doesn't leave a bruise.
8. Hey, look—my tibia!
6. Did it go in?
5. Oh, boy… hospital food!
4. Tape it up, coach, I'm staying in.
3. They fired Leno?
2. Heat, then ice, or ice, then heat?
1. At least my bracket's not busted.
