Yesterday I broke my thumb. this is how I did it.... My basketball got stuck between the rim and backboard. So I jumped up to get it from behind the hoop. The hoop was adjustable but not anymore because they put a screwdriver to hold it up. My finger came down with so much force It got suck between 2 pieces of metal. It took 3 grown men with screwdrivers etc.. to get the metal moved enough to get my thumb out. So I went to the ER thinking I would only need stiches... but instead of stiches I get a broken thumb, a torn tendon and a date with the sergoun tuesday.
