As the NFL focuses its efforts on preventing brain injuries, another less serious, though far more aesthetically repulsive, problem is going unresolved: Messed-up finger syndrome.
Torry Holt, Ronnie Lott and Michael Strahan are among the countless victims who have been afflicted. Look at the digits of the former New York Giants All-Pro in the advertisement above? They dangle as if completely independent from the hand/wrist area. The pinky defies at least two of Newton's laws of gravity. Frankly, I can't even tell which finger is which.
Strahan talked about his bendable fingers during another shoot a few years back:
That's what his sitcom should have been about. I'd have watched a 22-minute show of Michael Strahan talking about his weird fingers.
