Yeah, I was reading about that another day... Uhm, yeah.
I took a puck to the nutz one day.
I have also had kidney stones since I was 18.
To this day they're the only two things that ever put me down. The stones hurt so bad I was vomiting, an immediate high fever and my poor mother who was going to give me a ride into school was in a panic because she couldn't lug me to the car to take me to the hospital and thought I may have been dying.
The puck... I was able to limp off, tell everyone to get off the bench so I could lay down, and I lay there for some time. I went back in during the third period, but holy **** was that an intense pain. Obviously no "rupture" that day (which that word + testicle really scares any man I would think), but holy **** did it hurt.
That's just insanely painful to hear, much less feel, so I really hope he's ok. He skated pre-game but I wasn't sure if he played or not.
