Least I didn't injure my sense of humor.
I'm fine...it was a few years back. Thanks for asking. I got thrown into the boards pretty hard after driving the the net at full steam. I hit so hard the bridge of my nose was in my line of sight. It was so bad that the doctor in the emergency room wouldn't even touch it. In total I ended up with a broken nose, a concussion, and a badly bruised knee. I was out of work for a few weeks and was off the ice for close to three months.
So many times I have thought about going to a half shield. I won't because I am not going thru that crap again. If I had been wearing a shield that night I would have ended up with some pretty bad cuts on my face from the shield being driven into my upper lip and mouth.
