Selfies are all the rage now, with some people competing over who can take the baddest or rarest selfie in a dangerous or unlikely locale. But few Selfiesmiths have gone through what the Grand Rapids Griffins’ Mitch Callahan did before taking his own selfie to remember.
Callahan was playing against the Iowa Wild, when the Wild’s Ryan Spoul smacked the puck and caught Callahan right in the teeth. And when I say “right in the teeth,” I mean it, as Callahan’s mouth was pretty much obliterated on impact.
I’m putting the selfie in question—taken and tweeted soon after Callahan got grilled in the teeth by a hockey puck—in a gallery up above so you don’t have to look at it if you don’t want to. It’s actually kind of horrifying, and since I have a little bit of a dental phobia myself, I’m already regretting having looked at it.
Anyway, if you really want to see what a hockey puck to the face can do to a human mouth, just click through the first photo of Mitch Callahan in happier and more toothful days up above to see it for yourself. Ouch!
