Why You Shouldn't Play in a Family Basketball Game

Every Christmas, we spend a day at Tony's dad's house. All of the siblings' families get together and there is always a family basketball game. Those of us who are smart, no longer play. Today, there was one such game. It was my Meaghers (Tony, Tristan, Tyler and Kellen) against the other Meaghers (Granddad, Mike, Chris and Matt) Lets just say they all have the same competitive nature...
I believe that Granddad is getting ready to push Tony, but he would never admit it.

Luckily, no one ended up on the ground in this play.
Then out of nowhere, the injury happened. Chris ran into Tony and he took an elbow to the face. Turns out the mouth bleeds like crazy as does the punctured lip. Off to the emergency room we went. Two hours and 3 sets of stitches later we returned to the party. Tony got stitches in two places inside of his mouth and seven stitches on his lip. The worst part of everything is that he is on an all liquid diet until Friday. The New Year's diet has officially begun.
Please note that the orange on his face is iodine, not chicken wing sauce!

Is it inappropriate to snicker, just a bit? Boys will be boys. My brother in law broke his arm one Easter during, of all things, an Easter egg toss. He tripped stepping back and fell on his arm. These are the things holiday memories are mafe of. I bet they do it again next year, hopefully without the stitches.

Ohhh, that's one dangerous game of basketball! My first thought was, "that's a little close to the car!" No injuries so far here in S.D. thank goodness!

I love the sock monkey from the post below! What a cute idea!
