Carlos Correa shared this statement online this week after experiencing an injury: “I’m extremely disappointed about not being on the field with my teammates. I sustained the rib fracture during a massage at my home on Tuesday. To sustain an injury in such an unusual way makes it even more frustrating. However, I will work hard to get back on the field as quickly as possible to help our team achieve our goal of winning another championship.”
Fans were quick to notice the strangest aspect of the story: the fact that this injury happened while he was getting a massage. Many people simply didn't believe Correa's reasoning. The memes came flowing in soon afterwards.
