“I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made. It’s just like it (the pain) wraps around you and squeezes. . . . So it was disappointing. Hopefully it’s just an isolated incident, and not something that’s going to become chronic.” Penner said.
Chronic injury due to pancake intake is something you would associate more with an overweight person on their fourth stack of pancakes, rather than a pro athlete.
But unless the word "pancakes" is not a euphemism for something else Penner seems to have pulled off the impossible and thrown out his back by lifting up a piece of pancake on a fork.
Maybe it would be best for the Kings and Penner that come pancake Tuesday he voluntarily enters solitary confinement to avoid the temptation of the day and possible re injury.
