Michael Owen's luck
Doctors today found that Owen has torn the ACL in his right knee. He'll need surgery, and will be out anywhere from six months to a year. Soccer players are so hard on their knees. He can't come back halfway. It's doubly tough for him because he signed with Newcastle United last year, and missed half the EPL season with a broken foot.
Now comes this. Owen seems like a stand-up guy (all betting issues aside) and it sucks that good people get hurt sometimes. I hope he comes back better than ever.
