Great Balls of Fire
This is no kinky variation on hot wax on the chest schtick, but rather a picture of domestic bliss deteriorating into agony. Kyle was about to feed his son Max and lifted the wee bairn's bottle from a pan of boiling water, Max kicked out, spilling the water over his old man's old man. Ouch!
Kyle, who has scored once this season, was kept in hospital overnight for observation and routine p*ss-taking. He is expected back in training tomorrow.
Wasn't former Mackem Gary Owers out injured for a while after coming back from honeymoon (with his top British figure skater wife Joanne Conway) with a "groin strain"?
You can only imagine the kind of stick that man must have got. :-/
My two all-time fave injuries are Dave Beasant dropping a bottle of salad cream on his foot and ex-Owl Andy Booth pulling his groin during a minute's silence.
