Terrell Owens, football player for the Philadelphia Eagles, injured his ankle and is unsure as to his availability for upcoming games against the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins.

I don't laugh at injuries, especially ankle injuries. I broke my tibia and fibula at the ankle and dislocated my foot 9 years ago. It's not fun.

However, sometimes reporting injuries can be.

"[Eagles spokesman Derek] Boyko confirmed [the ankle injury] was on the same right leg he broke a year ago ..."

Seriously, was the adjective "right" completely necessary there? How many right legs does any human have? ahh, humor.

I suppose he could have had two left feet.

On an unrelated note, have you heard anything to this effect: "Groundwork laid to bring NHL to Houston"?

Good catch. I love silly writing errors.

I too absolutely LOVE this type of statement error. Great catch!
