InfrasonicTom: hockey players are so tough


FTA: "Giroux sustained tendon damage when a golf club shattered and splintered into his finger Thursday. "

Yeah, he's not manly enough to injure it from a high-five (Jeff Baker), or while washing dishes (Ian Kennedy), or while reaching into an ice bin (Dan Uggla).  Total wuss.

I'm torn here because of my hatred for the Flyers, but I think the stupidity of this comment outweighs that.

Hockey players have also been injured by pancakes and crackers, though

Eh, I'll give back injuries a pass (for ALL sports, not just hockey), 'cause I've had a slipped disc and you can aggravate it pretty easily and it's painful as fark.

/Pancakes Penner is teh funny tho'

His foursome consisted of himself, Crosby, Matt Cooke, and P.K. Subban.

He never stood a chance.

What a 'golf injury' may look like.

I hate to be "that guy" but I thought my headline was better: Giroux gives golf the finger.

Maybe I'm a bad fan but I'm still pissed about shiatting the bed now, what, four years in a row.

The Cup year was the aberration with Bylsma. Just like Boudreau he'll win a President's Trophy but not another Cup.

To stay on topic, even the farking Flyers have been to the Final more recently than the Pens.

/not as angry as I sound
//drinking and tired, in europe

You need to drink until you cant remember any of the playoffs last year like I did. But not so much that you forget that its good when bad things happen to the flyers, then things seem a lot brighter

But they haven't won it~!

I'm a little sad that the divisions got recombobulated so that I can no longer make cliché jokes about the Flyers being at the bottom of the Atlantic. ;_;

Shatter a golf club?

Time for anger management class.

It's unknown what caused the club to shatter.

Riiiiiiiiiiiight. That's journalism-speak for, "None of the people who witnessed the incident will say what stupid thing Giroux did to injure himself.

/This is why you don't slam your club against the ground (or a tree, or anything else).
