Most folks get a massage to help them relax and recover. It’s a weekly routine for pro athletes, as their bodies go through a lot. After today, however, some may rethink their weekly rub downs.
Houston Astros short stop Carlos Correa received his weekly massage on Tuesday, where he somehow procured a broken rib. Correa was put on the Injured List for 4-6 weeks due to the broken bone.
My first thought was “wow! what an incredible birthday gift that I have received, as a Ranger fan!”
Houston has been riddled with injuries this season, and one of their stars goes down, on my birthday, due to a massage?! I don’t want to say that I have the power to curse Carlos Correa…but we certainly can’t rule it out.
I vow to our readers and listeners to investigate this matter further. Has anyone else had this happen? Is there a stranger way to break a rib? I need to hear from others on this.
