Lol, well that's great superman, but I suspect you never experienced a serious ankle sprain or the right set of circumstances for it to happen. Fact of the matter is, it definitely can happen. I sprained my ankle playing ice hockey more than once. The last time it happened was very severe...it was over 5 years ago, and it still bothers me each and every day. I hit a pretty big dude up against the glass, he fell back on me, my one leg was in a bad spot, and all the weight of him and me drove straight onto my ankle as it buckled beneath me. I shudder just thinking about it.
