Was told by source #Penguins James Neal's injury is something similar to strained oblique. Suffered it when Pens played whiffle ball on ice.— David Todd (@DavidMTodd) October 8, 2013
Just heard from someone else that Neal indeed hurt himself playing wiffle ball.— Sean Gentille (@seangentille) October 8, 2013
... probably because he's good at swinging and missing.
*obligatory note that this is just a joke and we don't wish injury on anybody, even if said person likes to head hunt the star player of their biggest rival*
Okay, ruining the fun ....
It wasn't whiffle ball. That is all. Back to reporting I go. #pens— Rob Rossi (@RobRossi_Trib) October 8, 2013
