I almost died...
So, I went and lifted weights tonight, then played some basketball. Two of my students played, which was fun.
But when I was driving to the basket in the open court, I went in hard, and somehow someone undercut me. Last time this happened, I funked up my right hip for about a month. This time I about pulled a Don Beebe:

I couldn't find the picture, but sports fans will remember the time he got undercut and fell directly on the top of his head, miraculously uninjured.
I basically did a handstand-somersault, effectively an upside-down military press, from a full jump heighth. How I didn't get hurt I don't know. Good thing my wrists are strong. Jesus H. Christ.
