This has been the year of the groin. First, we have had Carlos Boozer injuring and re-injuring his hamstring so many times that it appeared as though they may have to amputate it, and now we have Michelle Kwan leaving the Olympics because of some problems with hers. I don't remember hearing this much about the dreaded hamstring since Jim McMahon injured his back in 1987, beginning the end of Ditka and the Super Bowl Shuffle Bears and marking the beginning of the Tomczack/Harbaugh/Kramer/Insert random bad quarterback name here era.
Is it really that chronic? Once it's pulled, can you pull it again so easily? Most importantly, how good would a pulled hamstring sandwich be if you had the right barbeque sauce?
