    Came a cropper in the sprint in this morning's vets race. Knees were cut up a bit but he took the biggest bang to the head. I left him in the capable hands of his wife at the VHI Swiftcare Clinic - he may need some reconstructive surgery once she's finished with him!!

    He's heading off to A&E to get a nasty cut above the eye checked out. Suspect he'll be taking it easy for a while.

    Hope any plastic surgery delivers the face you want Rob, and that you get over this and back on the bike quickly. Speaking of the bike, that took a bit of a clout - I'm sure we'll get an update on condition in due course.

    Eeeshk. Hate hearing those stories :(

    Get well soon


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,442 ✭✭✭LollipopJimmy


    Ouch. Facial cuts tend to look a lot nastier than they actually are so hopefully this is the case. Either way hopefully all will be well and the missus doesn't kill him altogether

    Well Rob, if you're given a choice between losing the bike, or losing the wife, I know which one I'd choose (the bike complains less).

    Hope you're back up and pedalling soon.

    Chicks dig scars ;)

    Heal well and hopefully a quick recovery. ☺

    That fooker will do anything to get a new bike!

    Thanks for helping him out Beasty!
    He was nagging me to go with him this morning but the bed was more appealing.

    Guess he will have to cancel his trip to Spain now!

    He's thinking of going in the "slow" group - with the intention of dropping the Lion of Fingal and that other one from your area....

    Suspect Richie's may see some business beforehand. His car's abandoned if anyone wants to claim it....

    ...or the wheelchair group as its known around here.

    Yes - he can't drive until things settle down a bit and most people from around here had their own cars. We'll sort something out over the next couple of days. His bike's in the back of the halpinator's car. His skinsuit is looking a little the worse for wear. Maybe you guys could do with a new design...

    The way the weather had turned I think he may have been thinking about the swim leg....

    Hope your helmet was securely fixed in position and you have speedy recovery.

    Here's to a fast recovery Mr Fowl, no doubt you'll be kicking that ball around the pitch for Liverpool again in no time. Was it beasty that took you down?


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,472 CMod ✭✭✭✭magicbastarder


    i hope he was wearing his hi-vis.


  • Registered Users Posts: 418 ✭✭lethal dose


    Sorry to hear this about Mr. Fowl!
    Plenty of the strong stuff and you'll be back on it in no time.

    Hope you're back up and pedalling soon.

    We had a good 20 years, no shame in calling it a day if she makes me choose....

    You took him to a vet????!?!?!?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,273 ✭✭✭koutoubia


    Vets are the only ones that will treat him these days


  • Administrators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 76,161 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭Beasty


    koutobia - you're getting these threads all wrong. The idea is to pass on good wishes, not encourage them to shoot him.....





    :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,273 ✭✭✭koutoubia


    Ah right. Sorry.

    I will leave it up to Mrs.Fowl to shoot him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 985 ✭✭✭Miklos


    Speedy recovery, Rob!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,338 ✭✭✭Lusk_Doyle


    Wait wait wait. Beasty had a crash?

    no - it's that if you come into physical contact with him, you will crash within 24 hours.
