now my ankle roll was more severe but was while running bases in a baseball tournament about 12 years ago. I torn both the anterior and posterior ligaments in my ankle almost clean through. Was a hair away from surgery. Worst part is that I actually could hear both of them go "pop" as they tore. not a pleasant sound or feeling. I was on crutches and out of commission for a few months. to this day it's still limited and extremely loose though better than a few years ago.

I've heard that noise once or twice... still gives me goosebumps.
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
