...his fat ass can't handle a trampoline. The result, a dislocated ankle. To be more exact, it was an open dislocation so his family got the great sight of bone through the skin. That bone had a lot of fat to pass through, so it must have been bad.

Chamberlain was having a fun time jumping on his trampoline (possibly in place of a real workout) with his son, when his ankle said "screw this", and there goes his career.  Possibly. Chamberlain had emergency surgery and screwed some things up for the Yankees. Fine by me.

ESPN New York:

"As we understand, they were at, they have these kids places where you jump on trampolines and stuff like that," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday.

Chamberlain had surgery on Thursday night at St. Joseph's Hospital, and is expected to remain in the hospital for several days for the injury, which resulted in an open flesh wound around the ankle. Manager Joe Girardi was at the hospital early Friday morning.

There was no timetable for Chamberlain's return, but Cashman labeled it a "significant injury." Chamberlain was already working his way back from Tommy John surgery last June.

Chamberlain is scheduled for an MRI and CT scan later in the day, and Cashman said he would visit the pitcher after the tests are administered.

"I just feel for him as an individual, as a member of our family," Cashman said. "We care a great deal about him, and we're just right now gonna be there [for him].

"From a team standpoint, it's a massive loss, because he's really good. But right now the most important thing is not what it means to the team, but what it means to him personally, in the present and the future. Right now I don't have any answers for anything."

Chamberlain can't put any weight on it for 4-6 weeks. Now Chamberlain can sit around for a month-and-a-half, being not slim. Let's face it, do you think he is going to make up for not being able to do normal workouts by doing upper body stuff? Scratch that, he doesn't have to make up for something he doesn't normally do. 

Is it bad that this puts a smile on my face?
