Los 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.Now THAT'S a guy who knows how to laugh at himself and have a good time.
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!
But I'm far more interested in the lovely Mrs. Penner, the fine Jessica Welch.
Girl, you hawt!
