While making what I must confess was a nice sliding catch for a goal in Sunday's Ultimate match, I managed to take off a nice 6-inch by 2-inch strip of skin from my leg. I didn't notice until after the match, and now it hurts like a bear. The only thing worse is removing the supposedly non-stick pads that do indeed stick and take off what is probably healing skin with it.
Still totally worth it. Even though my wife seems to think it happened because at the ripe old age of 28 I shouldn't be playing such games. As if after 27 years the human skin becomes a fragile layer that could just fall off if you ask for it.
Well I turn 29 in 16 days, perhaps I should invest in a large bubble to live in.
