Whats the worst you have had?

My worst ones are a busted lip from a power ranger (high double) on flag, a broken nose from a 5 on rifle, a bloody nose from learning to do a one handed 45 on flag, tendonitis from overworking my wrist while practicing for rifle line tryouts. And as of yesterday afternoon, I actually needed stitches! I managed to bust open my entire eyebrow plus another inch, making a 4 inch long gash that reached bone. Twas from a one handed 45, that starts at seatbelt position, then goes up, we spin with one hand up, and catch on one knee. The wind decided to take the flag farther back than expected, and the sun blinded me, so the last foot of the pole landed on my forehead/eyebrow area, splitting open the skin. Needed 37 stitches, and medical glue. I think I may have made our freshmen forever scared and frightened of doing 45's. :P

What is your worst? Huh, huh?
