No way, the biggest comeback/most courageous (or stupid) effort,
johnny Sattler of the South Sydney Rabbitohs came back for the second half
of the 1972 Rugby League Grand Final (I guess you Yanks won't know
what I'm talking about), after suffering a compound fracture of his jaw.
He was in danger of worsening the injury due to the fact that:
1) Rugby Leasgue players don't wear *** helmets,
2) Players from the opposition regularly stiff-armed opponents
around the *** area.

Ben Hogan... his pelvis curshed, leg broken with neck and back injuries
comes back in less than years to begin his domination of golf from
1950-1954... incredible... he had to wrap his legs in *** bandages to
hobble around the course to win the US Open... he is thee
presonification of will in modern sport...
