Soccer Player Ruptures Testicle While Scoring Goal

File this under things you probably never wanted to read about.

Scott Dann, a defender for the Blackburn Rovers, suffered the injury during a match against West Bromwich Albion on December 17.  He apparently was injured when he scored a goal in the second half, but continued playing despite increasing pain.

Following the game, Dann was transported to the hospital after his injured testicle got grotesquely swollen.  Surgery was successful and Dann should be back in action in about six weeks.

Gives new meaning to the term "balls to the wall," doesn't it?
