Dustin Penner Speaks Out About Pancake Injury

dustin-penner-pancakesLos Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner found himself on the butt of a number of jokes after it was revealed that he had recently injured his back while eating pancakes made for him by his wife. 

Considering that his wife is INSANELY hot, I don’t think anyone should begrudge him for eating ANYTHING of hers. But that’s neither here nor there (for the moment), the fun-loving forward took to the Internet and MayorsManor.com, a Los Angeles Kings website, to turn the situation around.

…First and foremost, I think we can agree that having delicious pancakes that your wife made for breakfast, for a 1pm game, is not out of the norm. Secondly, “SOBS” (Sudden Onset Back Spasms) can occur at any moment, doing just about anything you can think of, and is a very serious issue.

Those who have experienced “SOBS,” know it is no laughing matter. I’m a little hurt, to tell you the truth, that the plight of my people isn’t being taken seriously.

Frankly, I don’t mind the attention and there’s no such thing as bad press, right? Apparently, I made it onto ESPN’s ‘Around the Horn’ and joined Kings’ ATH alumnus Dustin Brown (see water bottle incident) and have also became a twitter sensation overnight (with hashtag #pennercakes). So, I’m hoping to get an endorsement from IHOP or Denny’s. 

The main thing here though is that we were able to bring attention to a serious issue like “SOBS” and hopefully find a treatment and unmask the mystery of it all.

In closing, for those who know how to laugh and find humor in life I hope they’ve enjoyed this as much as I did. 

In an effort to end the entire experience on a high note, I’m partnering with MayorsManor to sponsor a ‘Pancakes with Penner’ breakfast. In the weeks to come we’ll be setting up a special raffle. Fans will be able to purchase tickets for $1.00 for a chance to have a pancake breakfast with me. All the money raised will go to charity…while we enjoy some delicious pancakes! 

Now THAT’S a guy who knows how to laugh at himself and have a good time.

But I’m far more interested in the lovely Mrs. Penner, the fine Jessica Welch.

Girl, you hawt!
