First Ever Petanque Injury Sustained by Jeff Widen
The Cadillac Square pistes, in case you don't know, are a combination of gravel stretches checkered with pave stoned areas. It is ideal for boule, but sometimes, when a boule is shot, it flies for quite a long way along the flat, hard surface. I was chasing after an errantly shot boule (a miss by the way!) when I heard a POP! and my left leg was in it's own personal hell. Limping around a bit on it, I finished up the game with my comrades (Auessa and Rob) - a squeaker, but a loss: 13/11 (victory to Tim, Pat, and Mike) and then ambled back to the office for bag of ice and some leg elevation.
