Apparently, breakfast is not just the most important meal of the day but also the most dangerous. Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner triggered back spasms while eating pancakes.
“It’s one of those mysterious things, where you can throw it out (from) sneezing. I just leaned over to dip into some delicious pancakes that my wife made,” Penner told the LA Times.
The injury forced Penner to miss the Kings game over the weekend, but the 29-year old was instrumental in the Kings win over the Washington Capitals. Penner has an assist in last night’s 5-2 victory.
While Penner did not suffer any serious injuries, pancakes now joins luggage as potential risks to athletes (right Carlos Boozer).
