I Don’t Know Jake Brown But You Are No Jake Brown
You might remember skateboarder Danny Way from jumping the Great Wall of China. He tried to do a Big Air impression of Jake Brown at this year’s X Games. You might remember Mr. Brown from last year’s X Games where he tried to show off by blowing his shoes off his feet after falling four stories.
The announcers talked about having the “best medical staff in the business” after Brown’s fall. However in his and Way’s cases, the staff walked them off the ramp. My name means doctor so I know a little bit about this. That just doesn’t seem right. The extent of their injuries are unknown at the time so why would they risk further injury by making them walk it off? The medics were probably in the locker rooms rubbing ‘Tussin all over their wounds and talking about windows to weight gain.
What’s with rubbing his chest? Talk about taking advantage of someone when they’re vulnerable. “This is my chance, dude. I gotta take it.”
Brown ended up with liver and lung bruising, vertebrae stress fractures and a fractured hand. Way managed to escape with ligament damage in his right knee, ankle and shoulder in addition to abrasions. Damn lucky considering how both could have turned out.
