is it time to quit sports?

some of you know this, but for those that don't, i started playing soccer again in an adult league almost 2 yrs ago. i hadn't really had any injuries other than the aches and pains associated with aging, but in my game sunday night, i got my money's worth (or maybe the defender did). i was going in for the ball, beat the defender to it, but he still lashed out at the ball and instead took a good size hunk of skin off my ankle. it wasn't anything intentional, but that didn't make it hurt any less. he got me right on the ankle bone. his cleats tore through my sock and you can see the lines where his cleats took off my skin. surprisingly, it actually doesn't hurt too badly today, but the bruise has gotten pretty ugly. you can't even see my ankle any more due to the swelling. funny though, the kids say that my ankle now looks like my dad's does on a good day. as long as i'm healed up by my game this sunday. i just hope no one kicks me there again
