Joe Theismann I Feel Derek Carr's Pain ... Broken Leg Sympathy

1/3/2017 2:57 PM PST

Good news, Raider Nation -- broken leg expert Joe Theismann says he's 100% confident Derek Carr can rebound from his fractured fibula ... he knows from experience. 

We got the Super Bowl champ out in NYC earlier Tuesday where he told us he was brokenhearted for the Raiders QB ... and knows firsthand what it's like to recover from that same exact injury. 

Yeah, turns out Thiesmann broke his leg more than a decade BEFORE that infamous run in with Lawrence Taylor in 1985 (that gruesome compound fracture on MNF)  ... the one that ended his career. 

Theismann says he broke his fibula in 1972 while he was in the Canadian Football League -- but recovered and went on to have a pretty solid career with the Washington Redskins. 

As for the Raiders, Joe says he's a fan ... and explains why they might not be as dead in the playoffs as everyone thinks they are.

Rob Kardashian Blanketed with Same Good Luck Charm as Lamar

12/31/2016 12:50 AM PST

1229-rob-kardashian-chyna-blanket-akm-03Rob Kardashian's hospital visit had a flash of Lamar Odom's near-death ER trip ... based on a revealing pattern.

Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble showed up at the West Hills Medical Center Wednesday night with a leopard print blanket in tow ... and it looked familiar.

You'll recall in October 2015, Lamar was wheeled in a gurney wrapped in the same patterned blanket ... which Khloe called a good luck charm that she believes helped save her ex-hubby's life.

We're told the blanket Kris brought to the ER wasn't Lamar's, but it was identical. Almost everyone in the family has one. 

TMZ broke the story ... Rob checked himself into the ER after his rocky relationship with Chyna led to some pronounced weight gains and serious diabetes flare-ups. 

Luckily for Rob, like Lamar, he made it out of the hospital.

1229-dakota-ball-al-01University of Alabama defensive lineman Dakota Ball won't be playing in the Peach Bowl on Saturday ... because he's recovering from SHOOTING OFF HIS FINGER with a shotgun. 

Ball -- whose left hand was wrapped up at a Peace Bowl Media Day event on Thursday -- explained the accident occurred 2 weeks ago during a hunting trip with a friend.

"I shot my finger off with a 12-gauge shotgun," Ball told

"I was tying a rope around the barrel and around the stock to keep the shotgun from falling out of my lap ... I was tying rope around the barrel and it just went off. I didn't have my hand on the trigger."

"I shot it right at the knuckle and blew it off."

Ball was hospitalized and released the next day. 

The story comes in the wake of Philadelphia Eagles star QB Carson Wentz getting shotguns for his offensive linemen. 

Maybe a giftcard next year?

SoulCycle Sued They Torqued Me Right into a Hospital

12/27/2016 12:20 AM PST

1223-soul-cycle-sued-tmz-getty-2SoulCycle is being sued by a woman who says she was pushed so hard during one of their classes she had to be hospitalized.

Kaila Cashman says she signed up in 2014 for her very first indoor cycling class at SoulCycle's Rye Brook, NY location. During her workout she claims the instructor repeatedly increased the torque on her bike, and told her to keep pedaling. Not that uncommon for a SoulCycle sesh, if you've ever been.

Kaila says after the workout she felt sick and went to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis -- a condition that leads to the rapid breakdown of muscle tissue.

She claims she's been permanently injured, physically and emotionally, and is suing for damages.

Del Taco Sued Your Food Put Me in a Real Coma

12/24/2016 12:20 AM PST


Del Taco's claim its food is "Un-Freshing Believable" is un-freaking believable to an Orange County man who says 2 tacos and a quesadilla put him in a coma.

The 57-year-old customer is suing over a meal he says left him vomiting and in serious pain. According to the lawsuit he was rushed to the ER the next day due to excessive puking and placed in ICU, where he "slipped into a coma" for 3 days.

In the suit, he offers no specifics about how or why he fell comatose -- but he told us his esophagus was bleeding from the vomiting. He says doctors said it would take a miracle for him to pull out of the coma, and when he did it took 6 weeks to recover.

According to the suit, he racked up more than $160k in medical bills. He's suing for at least $500k in damages.

Del Taco points out this guy filed the same suit before to no avail. He tells us he voluntarily dismissed it so he could better prepare for trial.

Regardless, Del Taco says it will vigorously fight the allegations.
