The Iron Man has been broken!
In what became the his final game
, against Gladius Argentum's
arch rival, the Prague Impalers
, Riodan Celedor
was executing one of his notorious leaping blitzes on the Impaler's ball carrier, Boris Krieg
, but misjudged the footing needed to cover the extra distance after the landing. Falling awkwardly, the sickening crunch of breaking bones could be heard above the roar of the crowd. It was quickly apparent that this was no simple break, and in fact the epic GA lineman's entire collarbone was smashed. The apothecary looked on with dismay, noting that his bag of medicinal herbs was empty having just recently resuscitated GA Super Star Blitzer Elendar Cuthalion
, killed by a vicious block from the Impaler's muscle-bound thrower Drew Flees
. As the home crowd filed out of the stadium after the game, their faces a mix of emotions, many could be heard chanting for the team to make use of disreputable healing methods. To his credit, Riodan, his shoulder hidden under masses of padding and bandages, waved with his remaining good arm to the crowd and attempted to quell the chants. After the game he spoke to the media and reiterated the team's stance against such unsavory measures. "146 games is far more than I ever dreamed I'd play this game. It is fitting that I end my career with a game against the team's biggest rival, and that I played some small role in pulling out another stunning and hard won victory."
Nicknamed "Iron Man"
, Riodan's consecutive game streak finally came to an end after an astonishing 105
games due to a smashed ankle from Stink Fest's Putrefacon
