Doesn't seem all that bad. It's just a great opportunity for the other presenters to give him a hard time. :D Richard Hammond narrowly escaped death in 2006 when he crashed a jet-propelled car he was driving for British motoring programme Top Gear.

WTF!?!? When?!

Can someone just sit him down and tell him to start looking after himself? Seriously, if he's still on crutches for S14, he can borrow mine if my tickets come through. I would say that one day he'll do himself some serious damage, but...

Well, LOL.
Is the Hamster just about to fall apart?

also, anytime ANYONE mentions the Hamster in their post, they should end with : Richard Hammond was narrowly unearthed in 2006 when he crashed a jet-propelled shallow grave he was digging for British motoring programme Top Gear.

"Hamster Gets a Piece of Corn Stuck in His Teeth."

Complete with a mention of the '06 crash and some angry women writing in about how much they hate TG.

It'd be a winner.

Ya know, he really does seem to have one heck of a time recently. I hope it's just a series of crappy, over publicized coincidences and everything's ok.

Heh, it would be awesome if he did come out for season 14 in the i-Real, although did those things ever go into production? I can't find any news articles on them recently.

Wasn't the i-REAL just a concept anyway?

(Insert clever sentence mentioning a jet car crash in 2006 involving the Hamster here.)

Richard Hammond narrowly escaped death in 1987, 2048 and 1959 at the same time when the flux capacitator on his jet-powered dragster failed while trying to reach 88 mph.

That's because those are mostly used by americans and others who have to rely on their shoulder joints to take the weight of their body.


(Sorry, I just couldn't resist :p)
