Get Well Soon: Steve Zakuani, Seattle Sounders
Disclaimer: do not view if you’ve just had something you prefer to keep safe within the confines of your stomach. Thx to Sandra R. for the story spot!
Last Friday, during a MLS match between the Seattle Sounders and Colorado Rapids, Sounders’ midfielder Steve Zakuani’s tibia, fibula and other body parts ending in “a” fell victim to an ill-timed tackle from the Rapids’ Brian Mullan (as seen above around 0:20).
Since then, Stevie Z has been somewhat popular on the social networks circuit, as he itemised in an open letter posted on his non-profit’s Web site thanking his friends, family and fans for their support. As he embarks on his post-surgery road to recovery, Mullan will most likely face disciplinary sanctions of sorts, expected to be announced sometime today.
SZ – we hope you’re back in no time. If you haven’t received our very best batch of ‘feel better soon!’ brownies, just wait longer. Our success rate with baking is fairly poor.
