The MBA basketball curse

It’s official…  MBA students are not meant to play basketball.  Tonight I drove a classmate to the ER after he had a bad fall during a basketball game.  Initially we thought he broke his ankle, but it turns out that it’s just severely sprained.  Obviously an injury such as this is bound to happen; however, this incident is the 4th Fisher 2011 basketball injury since school began. 

Earlier in the year a group of Fisher MBAs were playing basketball in the ARC and during a wild loose ball scramble, one of our classmates tore his Achilles tendon.  Four days later, another MBA student went down with a nasty high ankle sprain.  Roughly a month later, a third classmate broke his foot in a pick-up game.  These are troubling stats, especially since the Fisher MBA intramural basketball team starts our season next week. 

Feel better Greg.  We need you back next week.
