There are a lot of ways to get injured playing sports. And sometimes, the injuries can be pretty weird. But the mother of all sports injuries is the dreaded nut shot. It usually doesn’t leave any permanent damage—well, not physical damage; psychological maybe—but in terms of shear pain there is no comparison. Personally, I’d rather tear both ACL than get hit in the nuts by a baseball, football, knee, or fist. But then my ACLs aren’t worth millions of dollars.
Anyway, today we bring you 21 animated GIFs featuring dudes getting hit in the balls. It’s hilarious, but, you know, also sad. So go get yourself a bag of ice (you’ll probably be a little sore after just watching these) and get ready to cringe.
