Monday Night Football - Appendectomy 101 video (UPDATE 1)

Below, we see a clip from ESPN's Monday Night Football game as the Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The story going into this game was Ben Roethlisberger, who had an appendectomy just 15 days prior, starting the game at quarterback for the Steelers.

So ESPN, who loves to smack us in the face with meaningless, filler garbage, gave us a human anatomy lesson by explaining what happens when the appendix becomes enlarged and what has to be done to fix it. They could have simply gave us a 10 second recap of the process, but instead they thought it'd be best to show us visuals. We were presented with pictures of some intestines, a swollen appendix and other disguting things that, quite frankly, I don't want to review the video again to see what those things were. But you are more than welcome to...

P.S. - Hey Michele Tafoya, aren't all appendectomys considered an "emergency"? Just asking.
