I was watching breakfast news on TVNZ this morning and one of those crawling headlines caught my eyes....'Top jockey Jim Cassidy forced to miss spring season due to accident in garden.'
What? He got attacked by the lawn mower? Accidentally ate the datura? Assaulted by a pissed off gnome? Got an allergy?
Is there any way they could have given his accident less cred?
The Australian gives treats him with a little more respect with this headline, 'Cassidy to Miss Carnival with Serious Injury.
He was trimming a hedge when he slipped and sliced two fingers on his left hand, slicing through to the bone. He's currently in hospital about to have surgery.
Gah, hospitals and headlines, places you want to stay out of.
