Your Bizzare Sports Injury of the Day

Your Bizzare Sports Injury of the Day
By Conor Donnelly Updated
Ice Hockey player Dustin Penner, forward for the LA Kings, had to spend some time in the trainer's room recently after he experienced an excruciating back injury caused by pancakes.  That's right light, fluffy pancakes!
“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.
