Rapper Common and his bride-to-be, tennis superstar Serena Williams were spotted out & about shopping in NYC yesterday (3/6).
In this picture, Common appears to have what we in the medical field refer to as a "boxer's fracture" of his left hand. Although the term boxer's fracture is misnamed because boxers are trained to punch straight on to avoid these types of amateur injuries.
This injury occurs when a man throws an awkward roundhouse punch at a wall or door in a fit of rage -- usually during a heated argument with his wife or girlfriend.
The punch is delivered hard enough to fracture the metacarpal bone of the pinky finger -- and to leave a rather large hole in a door or wall.
Men who are raised by their moms (or aunties) to be respectful to women usually suffer this type of injury. That's because they know that real men take out their frustrations on inanimate objects (like punching bags) rather than on a woman's face.
