Give credit to Dustin Penner for having a sense of humor about himself. The whole “Penner hurt himself eating pancakes’’ story got real silly, real fast, but Penner is making something positive out of it by participating in a charity event on Feb. 13 called “Pancakes With Penner.’’ Fans can enter a raffle for a chance to eat a pancake breakfast with Penner in Westchester, as well as receive an autographed card and other prizes. Full details are available at www.lakings.com/pancakes. Proceeds benefit the Kings Care Foundation.
Honestly, I’m most impressed by the fact that Penner is doing this at 8 a.m. the day after an 11-day road trip. He’s much braver than I. Kudos to him for making the best of this, all around.
