I'm on my phone so I cant link it but on Patricks twitter it says he broke his collerbone riding home, and on his birthday. I just wanted to say, along with the rest of the community to get well soon! Who else is gonna get those scoops!? 
 
EDIT: Linked here

I just saw the tweet. I would embed it if I knew how. That sucks though. I hear that hurts like a bitch.

And on his 21st birthday too, so sad. RIP Patrick.

#4 Posted by BaneFireLord (2969 posts) -

Jeez, what a shitty way to end a birthday.

#5 Posted by Sackmanjones (4772 posts) -
@BaneFireLord on the bright side I guess he got to enjoy most of his day....right?
#6 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1162 posts) -

He went from Scoops to Spills.

#7 Posted by ManU_Fan10ne (659 posts) -

Get well soon :)

#8 Posted by Strife777 (1619 posts) -

That's a bummer. Could've been worst though.

#9 Posted by wjb (1718 posts) -

Shit. Hopefully it wasn't anything major that would require surgery.

#10 Posted by JZ (2120 posts) -

Ouch

Get well soon Patrick!

#13 Posted by Cerberus3Dog (509 posts) -

I does hurt like hell. Take it easy duder, let the bone heal naturally. On your birthday, that blows.

#14 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

Ryan dug the pothole, confirmed!

#15 Posted by Patman99 (1633 posts) -

Oh holy shit. Is the bike ok???

I'm just kidding, that sounds terrible... I hope he can salvage a good birthday somehow.

#16 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Fuck, that sucks. Get better Scoops.

He ain't 21..... if you were serious. He damn near 30.

it was a joke because he looks young and is disgustingly skinny

the reason his collarbone broke is he is made out of sticks

(serious though, get well soon p-dawg)

#19 Posted by gogosox82 (428 posts) -

Ouch those collarbones hurt. I broke mine when i was a kid. Get well soon Patrick.

#20 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3111 posts) -

I can't wait until all the posts about how potholes hate Patrick and are ruining Giant Bomb.

#21 Posted by DeathByWaffle (657 posts) -

Damn son, that sucks. Breaking your collarbone can't be fun (I've never broken any bone myself, but I'd imagine any bone being broken has to suck).

#22 Edited by BaconGames (3611 posts) -

It must have been my Paul Rudd SNES gif that caused him to get distracted. Damnit I never meant for this to happen!

patricks gonna have a huge 1up over everyone when he hits 40, as he'ill probably look 30 to people.

That is why Cool Baby gave us 2.

#25 Posted by Kerned (1170 posts) -

That sucks! I hope you have a quick recovery, duder. I broke my elbow very badly about a year ago. It wasn't an experience I want to relive. You have my sympathies. #teamcollarbone

#26 Posted by C0V3RT (1381 posts) -

Bummer! What better way for a Bears fan to recouperate by brushing up with "Quarterback Attack with Mike Ditka." Who doesn't love an FMV game staring former Chicago Bears legend Mike Ditka? Here's to a speedy recovery.

Potholes are the quick time events of cycling.

I laughed a little too hard at this.

Get well soon, Patrick! That sounds painful as heck. I assume we'll be seeing neck-brace Patrick in the office (assuming it's that kind of injury).

#28 Posted by edgeCrusher (203 posts) -

I was going to post this as a joke during the podcast (superbowl talk), but drinking and riding a bike is more dangerous than drinking and driving a car. Balance is your friend, and the first thing that goes when you consume alcohol. Still, get well soon man, Giant bomb doesn't forget it's own.

#31 Posted by JamesJeux007 (513 posts) -

Well, if he's joking about it on Twitter, at least we know it's not that serious. Get well and watch a lot of X-Files !

#32 Posted by mlarrabee (3096 posts) -

That piece is important. And very painful when broken, or so I've heard.

Here's to a swift and (as much as is possible) painless recovery, Patrick!

#33 Posted by Demoskinos (15286 posts) -

At first I thought that this was going to be someone just being a dick to Patrick again but damn this is...an unexpected turn of events.

#34 Edited by DaMisterChief (628 posts) -
Get Well Soon
#35 Posted by demonknightinuyasha (479 posts) -

That is a huge bummer any day of the week. Get well soon Patrick!

#36 Posted by rjayb89 (7730 posts) -

The combined hatred of Patrick in these forums willed that pothole into existence. Good job, you guys.

#37 Posted by MistaSparkle (2150 posts) -

My friend broke my other friends collar bone in middle school, so he punched him in the eye...you should punch that pothole, or your bike, in the eye.

Get better, duder! More time for you to play Fire Emblem!

#38 Posted by Mister_V (1462 posts) -

Ouch, sounds painful. Get well soon Patrick.

#39 Posted by bassman2112 (864 posts) -

Best of luck, and feel better soon Patrick! Sorry to hear about the pain; but it is really fantastic to see the spirits being kept high

Get better soon =)

#40 Posted by LaserGreen (52 posts) -

Thats awful, I hope you're otherwise ok Patrick! Get well soon.

#42 Posted by dOm_CaTz (257 posts) -

i'll just leave this here.

#43 Posted by wumbo3000 (1025 posts) -

Breaking a collarbone on your birthday. That's a story to tell your grandchildren. Get better soon Patrick! Sounds really painful.

#44 Posted by dungbootle (2428 posts) -

That sucks, hope it gets better quickly.

On a related note I'm glad the community is giving him the birthday present of Patrick threads, whether they mean to or not!

#45 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1791 posts) -

OH, not a car accident. Well, that sucks anyways. Happy Birthday bro.

Ouch dude. Get well soon.

#49 Posted by Flappy (2376 posts) -

Get well soon, Patrick! Don't play too many visual novels while you heal up!

#50 Posted by Bane122 (828 posts) -

I don't buy it. Trickey's too baller to let a pothole get the better of him. I bet he was at some secret, bitchin' party and shit got too crazy.
