Practice makes perfect, but it can also lead to a broken ankle. 

The Nashville City Paper (h/t Yahoo Sports) reports radio personality at 107.5 The River Adam Davis, better known as Intern Adam, was injured during an on-ice rehearsal of a human bowling ball exercise back in December. 

The video of the incident follows. Be warned, there is some NSFW language when Davis reaches the end. He lets out an expletive that is excusable, considering what he suffered. 

According to Yahoo Sports, via the lawsuit, Davis suffered, "a right medial malleolus fracture" (i.e. broke his ankle), needing surgery, screws and continued treatment."

The price of fixing a broken ankle varies, but it's safe to say it remains just over what the radio personality is willing to pay, especially considering the injury was a result of a solid he was doing for the Nashville Predators

The Nashville City Paper gives some more information on a painful experience. 

Davis was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where screws had to be placed in his ankle.

The lawsuit claims that employees of the Predators failed to provide adequate protection for Davis — and also failed to warn Davis of the risks associated with the stunt. Attorney Bill Leader, who is representing Davis, said his client didn't sign any kind of waiver form before participating in the stunt.

The cost of this wacky bowling ball fiasco has apparently reached to over $25,000, the same amount Davis is asking for in his lawsuit. 

So far, there has been no comment from the team, because they are still awaiting the lawsuit to reach them. 

Human ice bowling looks like all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
