Russell Branyan got a strange injury too

Jul 16, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

Mat Latos’ sneeze injury sounds odd. Russell Branyan’s toe injury sounds downright fishy:

Wakamatsu said a table fell on Branyan’s left foot this morning in
his hotel room, cutting and bruising a toe. “He went to close the curtains this morning at 5,” Wakamatsu said.
“He knocked over the table and it landed on his foot.”

You ever knock over a table? It’s not that easy. You really have to smash into the damn thing. I mean, it’s a table; it’s designed to stay upright.

My guess: he was trying to move the table to make more room on the impromptu dance floor he and the 16 flight attendants he had brought back to his room were using.  Branyan parties really get going at about 5AM.

    “You ever knock over a table? It’s not that easy.”
    For you. Russell the Muscle knocks over trees when he bumps into them. One time he sneezed and started a hurricane.
