Yeah, but playing PS/Xbox is not a sport.

Some of the readers might remember ?
I remember one incident few years back at the US open held in anaheim at the Orange County Badminton Club (OCBC),98 ?
One of the players from Canada ( if I remember correctly) felt on her back, while trying to recover a shot, she scream so load " somebody please help me !!", the whole gym went dead silence for a few minutes, the incident went so fast, no one know exactly what had happened or type of injury she sustained from the fall, after being attended by the paramedic for a few minutes, she was standing up, walking off the court. and thanks God, she was OK.
We have some players in the club using fake Yonex they bought from China, reading some of the posting about flying rackets, maybe I should stop playing with those guys.

cracked my racquet on mrs. badrad's head...
I am in the doghouse for a few days. I broke my new racquet, but it was the fact that I broke it over mrs. badrad's head that has me in the bad...
we were having some fun beating up a couple of boys last nite. NOW... My story is that the mid court lift was deeper than I thought and that mrs. badrad backed up into my smash follow through. Her story is that it was a mid-court floater and that I reached out too far...
The entire gym could hear the "crack". She winced - but not a single tear. We then completed the game (we did a 15-1 on the boys). I think the boys got real scared of mrs. badrad when they saw her just shake it off and continue playing like nothing happened.
mrs. badrad has forbidden me from throwing away that racquet, as she wants to keep it to show everyone what I did to her...
well... at least i didn't kill her... with all that guilt she is giving me, maybe, just maybe...

Man, Mrs. Badrad is one tough cookie! The boys on the other side probably see her in a new light and started lifting their shots to avoid her wrath. It's their instinctual protection mechanism: She has to take out on the opponents as she couldn't actually take it out on her errant partner. Poor guys must have been severely punished when they direct any returns to her.

I was reading news on cbc.ca, like I do everyday, and I noticed this story. It made me remember this thread right away. It is truly sad how a friendly sport such as badminton can actually cause death. Anyone know any more details on this article?
Student dies during badminton practice
Last Updated Thu, 17 Nov 2005 19:21:41 EST
A 17-year-old Toronto girl collapsed and died during badminton practice Thursday at a private girls high school.
Jennifer Lou, a boarding student from Taiwan, collapsed at Bishop Strachan School.
Staff performed CPR on Lou but she could not be revived and was pronounced dead in hospital.
School officials were not aware of any pre-existing health conditions Lou may have had, according to reports.
The school has notified her parents who are in Taiwan. They have also brought in grief counsellors.

The fact that she was playing badminton (it could have been any other sport or exercise) was just the catalyst for her condition.
