Right now the pothole is somewhere on the forums saying "I'd rather have hit Jeff or Ryan."

Because it's an asshole.

#53 Posted by KaneRobot (1544 posts) -

I hope this means he can get some kind of cyber...thing put in.

May all your healing be based on the greatest technology, Patrick.

#54 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

That really sucks, get well soon!

#55 Posted by Little_Socrates (5675 posts) -

Man, what a bummer. We'll miss you while you're stuck in recovery, Patrick. Unprofessional Fridays won't be the same without your enthusiasm.

Get well soon. You'll be in my prayers.

Get better, ya doof.

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.

I read in the papers yesterday that if you ride a bicycle in Tokyo while drunk you can be fined roughly $23,500 and put in jail for 3-4 years.

Either way; get well soon Patrick! Getting injured on your birthday is common practice (in Sweden at least)!

Drunk cycling never ends well. I didn't finish the TNT, but I have to assume he was at least a little inebriated?

#62 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Don't drink and cycle is the moral here!

#63 Posted by ghostchant (122 posts) -

Is anyone having a worse string of shit happening to them then this guy the past year or so?

Jeez that sounds painful. Well I wish him the best and hope he gets well soon.

Get well soon buddy!

#66 Posted by Aetheldod (3555 posts) -

That sucks duder ,,,, hope is not too serious and have a pain free recovery.

Depends on the injury ... but if he is tweeting about it I guess he will only be wearing a splint on his arm (to help the healing) ... My cousin had his collarbone broke , he could still play games so Patrick can still do his job duders,

YAY Insensitive joke time!

1. Fact: The clavicle is the most commonly broken bone during childhood.

2. I guess there'll be no more quicklooks, then.

3. Hey, Patrick! What's the hardest thing about riding a bike?

Seriously, though... Good to hear you're okay and in good spirits. Get better quick, Patrick!

#72 Posted by probablytuna (3621 posts) -

Man, that's gotta hurt. Get better!

#73 Posted by big_jon (5723 posts) -

Milk!

#74 Posted by TruthTellah (8815 posts) -

Aw man, that's awful. Sounds like it could have been much worse!

I pray he heals quickly and it doesn't get too much in the way of him enjoying what he loves.

#76 Posted by Neurotic (632 posts) -

Damn, I hear the collarbone's the worst bone to break (except the neck or spine I guess...). I wish for a swift recovery for you, Patrick.

#77 Posted by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

On the plus side, your wife can now bring me soup.

#78 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1601 posts) -

#79 Posted by coakroach (2490 posts) -

I found it really funny that when I left for work the last forum thread I saw was 'Happy Birthday Patrick!' then I get back and immediately see this.

Get well soon duder.

#82 Posted by Superfriend (1545 posts) -

Confirmed: There will be no content on the site next week- well, unless Patrick somehow finds a way to work from home or the hospital.

Seriously though, get well soon.

#83 Posted by Dogma (946 posts) -

Hope you get well soon Patrick! As you said yourself, it could been much worse. Allways look on the bright side!

Take care and heal up. We are all casting Curaga over here!

#84 Posted by Humanity (9060 posts) -

Don't drink and drive (bikes) kids!

Hope it heals up soon, I can imagine going to sleep is now annoying as hell.

#86 Posted by JFunkhouser (67 posts) -

I broke my collarbone. Twice. In the same spot. Hurts like a mf. Get well soon, Patrick.

#87 Posted by Kazona (3065 posts) -

#91 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4720 posts) -

Fuck. A collarbone break is considered one of the most painful ones you can suffer. Not to mention it fucks your mobility all to hell.

Hope he's doing okay.

Wat?

If Patrick is only 21, you've officially blown my mind...

...and made me realise how little I've achieved with my 23 years on this Earth.

#93 Posted by 49th (2734 posts) -

Sorry about the potholes, Patrick.

Get well soon.

#94 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4720 posts) -

@GetEveryone: He's not 21. He's 26-27. That poster was just making a joke about how Patrick doesn't look like he's hit puberty yet.

Heh, reminds me of something I've seen before. (A quick and dirty photoshop follows.)

(SupernormalStep's portraits are so useful)

Have a speedy recovery, Patrick.
