Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Penner unwisely revealed he was unable to play over the weekend and had to sit out after suffering back spasms brought on by eating pancakes.
Seriously!? That’s a new one.
Penner was going to just sit down and enjoy a savory dish of awesomeness in the form of Pancakes when something went wrong. Something real wrong.
The pancakes grabbed his knife and refused to be eaten. Instead, the pancakes went after Penner and chased him around the kitchen. After a brutal fight, Penner was able to pin down the pancakes and kill them.
That sounds reasonable, right? I mean it makes more sense than bending over to eat and throwing out your back?
It’s not everyday that an awesome breakfast dish knocks out a professional athlete. I expect this kind of behavior from crêpes, not pancakes.
[via Fox Sports] Penner, who is no stranger to being knocked for his weight, admitted he was forced to sit out the Kings’ 1-0 loss to Columbus Saturday after becoming crippled as he leaned forward to tuck into his breakfast.
“Apparently it’s one of those mysterious things, where you can throw it out sneezing,” he told LA Kings Insider.
“I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made. It’s just like it wraps around you and squeezes.”
The 242-pound left winger said his back “locked” and he was unable to stand.
