When I think of March, I think of 2 things: March Madness (NCAA basketball tournament) and St. Patrick’s Day. Although, I will have to admit, I get much more excited about March Madness than I do St. Patty’s Day. I think this can only be due to the fact that I am not Irish.
Since I don’t know of any specific Irish-only foot and ankle injuries, I thought, what better topic could be discussed in March than common basketball injuries? The only other topic connection I could think of between these two events would be common foot and ankle injuries secondary to the effects of excessive alcoholic consumption. Although, this could be very interesting and I am sure there are some great photo’s associated with this topic, I think we will stick with common basketball injuries this year. Over the course of the month, we will look to reference any specific foot or ankle injuries of note as the NCAA tournament gets underway (knock on wood…I am not trying to jinx anyone!) I look forward to our topic discussion of common basketball injuries this month.
