Hazardous Summertime Sports

Being physically active means sometimes accidentally hurting yourself. Forbes has ranked the top ten hazardous sports, based solely on the number of injuries reported from emergency rooms in 2006. Take this quiz and see which sports you might want to avoid if you are trying to stay in one piece.

Helpful tip: the numbers used in the ranking do not take into account the varying participation rate of the sports, so the more people playing the sport the higher the number of injuries. So, yes, this might also seem like a popularity contest.

I only got the last one right, and that's because in the last couple of months a coworkers uncle broke his leg getting hit by a softball & her nephew got a concussion the other day getting hit by a softball in the head. Ouch.

I was always told that cheerleading is the number one sports injury. I know that's not a "summer participatory" sport, but for high school athletes, that's who the nurses & doctors see the most.
