I feel like someone punched me in the stomach.

I saw Carl Foggarty have his career ending accident

I saw Aryton Senna die in his F1 crash

and others I cant remember now ... Now Rossi ... this sucks

Gods don't have bad days let alone break their legs.

I'll never forgive my parents for not giving me a cool name like that.

I'd imagine they would be crying for their mommy and working at a LBS selling shoes after the first time.

Get well soon Vali ...

He must be getting old. I've seen Lorenzo get MUCH more air, numerous times, and not break anything. I think Lorenzo must be made of rubber.

Tough break for Rossi. You know it's a tough sport when one of the greatest of all time goes out with an injury.
