Starting today, MYFO will begin a steady ramp-up to the NHL’s All-Star weekend. We have a bunch of posts planned to get you psyched for a game that will not be featuring Hockey Jesus. Stick around today, tomorrow, and throughout the weekend. We’ve got some neat stuff in store for you.
Tyler Kennedy was selected to the NHL’s YoungStars team this season. In his first season with the Pittsburgh Penguins, he has 12 points in 31 games. Not horrible, especially when everyone is focused on Sidney and his disciples.
One problem….Tyler Kennedy has mono. He won’t be able to play this weekend.
….wait, what? Mono? The Kissing Disease? How the hell does a pro hockey player get a disease that you get in high school? Yanno what? Excuse me a moment….HAW HAW!!!
Okay. I’m back now. Join me after the jump as we take bets on who gave Tyler Kennedy Mono.
Jarkko Ruutu 8/1: Never trust the Swedes. No, I’m serious. The Swedish will ruin your life any chance they get. They’re like carnies.
Oh, he’s Finnish? Well, fuck them too. Ruutu has been a pest every since he was a kid in the Finnish leagues, and it continued to his career with the Canucks. Who’s to say Ruutu didn’t graduate from annoying pest to card-carrying infectious disease carrier?
Random Skank in Sault St. Marie 3/1: I’ve known people who lived in The Sault (pronounced, “The Sioux”). They were all skanks. Horrible skanks. And, of course, where is Tyler Kennedy from? You guessed it! The Sault! So he went home for the holidays, made out with a couple cum dumpsters, and now look where he is.
Be glad mono is the only transmittable disease you caught, Tyler. But…they are lovely, aren’t they?
Hockey Jesus 1/2: Can you blame our Lord & Savior? He’s got an ankle sprain. He’s hanging around the locker room while everyone else practices. He’s going to be getting people sick for shits and giggles. Jordan Staal will come down with the Ebola Virus this time next week.

Join in the comments with your own theories. Just remember…the only difference between herpes and mono is you get mono from snatching a kiss.
