I actually started snowboarding when I was 7 years old, so I felt very comfortable auditioning for a snowboarding movie, and I thought that would give me some leg up.
I’ve kind of banned myself from motorcycles. I’ve had broken ribs, broken shoulder, wrists, leg, broken collarbone – and it was all from motocross or rugby. All of my injuries have come from outside of sailing.
My brother once lit his leg on fire. And after, when the fire was finally out, his leg was covered in third-degree burns. And we made the decision – or my parents did – not to take him to the hospital but to treat that at home with a salve my mother made of comfrey and lobelia.
I’ve got a scar on my shin from when I got shot in New York when I was 17. I was outside a McDonald’s and somebody shot a gun from a car, and the bullet grazed my leg.
Once I got the Jaipor leg, it took me 3 years of physiotherapy to recover and feel normal again.
If the rhythm or beat of the music changes with a live orchestra, you have to think on your feet. If you feel like you are not on your leg, you have to make a decision to make it look as though nothing is going wrong.
I got what they called a diabetic stroke. Here’s what it is, my left hand and my left leg. You know when your leg falls asleep? It’s like that constantly. It’s not painful, but it’s so annoying. My leg is all tingly and my arm is all tingly.
Leg spinners can change the game.
When I am brushing my teeth, I’m bending my leg behind me, or I’m lifting my leg up and holding it in that position so I’m squeezing my butt in. I can do that while I’m washing or slicing vegetables, too. Or I go up and down on my toes, working my calves a little bit.
Instead of hazarding our future on the dirty fuels of the past, let’s invest in clean power that can drive this country forward. Let’s cut energy waste, make our economy the world’s most efficient, and give our workers a leg up in the global marketplace.
I would climb on roofs and jump off using my parents’ bed sheet, hoping it would open like a parachute. I was always getting hurt, breaking a leg, you know, bruising, cracking my head open.
Having the hip surgery and then still having the pain with it, I was kind of scared jumping off one leg, jumping off two feet. I was scared to be explosive.
A crocodile just swung around and hit me with its teeth. It took a big chunk off my leg.
I got the dragon on my leg when I was still living with my dad. He’s not a fan of tattoos, so I had to get it behind his back; he kind of freaked out when he saw it.
I don’t think you can climb Mount Everest with a broken leg, but I did break my leg prior to going to Mount Everest, so I was really climbing with a healing broken leg. I had the good fortune of climbing the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. That was a goal that I had.
I can bend over and put my head between my legs, stick my foot over my head, and stand one leg.
The artificial leg was like an alien body, fitted to mine. Both had to respond to each other.

Once a year, I take my whole wine team down to see the Giants, and we meet the players. I’ve never seen anyone pitch like Lincecum that can throw the ball and get through the front leg. He has that stiff front leg.
No self-respecting gym goer skips leg day.
I was clipped from behind, and my leg got caught between my opponent’s legs. As we fell, my leg snapped. It was a spiral fracture. They had to put in a plate and five screws. It was a devastating moment: one minute I was on cloud nine, and then I was out for the season.
When FDR died in 1945, he was still paralyzed from the waist down. After he died, his portrait was put on the dime. Through his illness, he went out of his way to minimize his difficulties. Of the thousands of pictures taken of him, only two show him in a leg brace or a wheelchair.
My old man used to say that I would argue the hind leg of a donkey. If I didn’t agree with something, I wasn’t prepared to accept it.
Keeping wicket is the worst place to be when out of form. You can’t hide at fine leg where you might touch the ball once every 10 overs. Behind the wicket you are involved every ball.
When you have a little 10-month-old who is climbing up your leg because you are their mountain – there’s no nobler reason to get out of bed every day. There’s no better reason to live, to make sure you provide as much guidance and as much room for that child to thrive.
In my experience, if you have to keep the lavatory door shut by extending your left leg, it’s modern architecture.
To go straight to ‘Scandal’ and get to play the larger-than-life guy who has the page-long rants and gets drilled in the leg with blood flying everywhere, it was a blast. It’s really been a nice counterpoint after the first season of ‘The Carrie Diaries.’
They amputated my my right leg right below the knee. It was a tough decision, but it had to be done.
Some people wear their heart up on their sleeve. I wear mine underneath my right pant leg, strapped to my boot.
My left foot is severely damaged from TSS, and I’m probably going to have to amputate my left leg. I could be super depressed about it, but I have been given a second chance. I’m here, and I’m living.
In 1949, I saw a World War II veteran named Lou Brissie, who had nearly lost a lower leg in combat, pitch in the All-Star Game in Brooklyn.
