Let me be the first to say I think this story has no merit whatsoever, simply because it takes significant time to get the kind of injury Oden did. But I guess Portland fans need something to do other than whittle wood all day. Portland's all sports radio station - 1080AM The Fan - has started a rumor that Oden may have gotten his injury from playing too much Dance Dance Revolution. According to them, Oden is quite the fan of the stupid Japanese game.
Honestly, I can't even tell if that's Oden in the picture. And I actually think the real story here is learning that Oden is a huge fan of Dance Dance Revolution - which makes him a huge nerd. Even though I don't think Dance Dance Revolution led to his injury, if it did, it would be one of the more bizarre ways that an athlete got injured during his career. Although I'm not sure anything will ever pass Kevin Mitchell injuring himself while eating a cupcake.
