Colorado Avalanche Goalie Peter Budaj Has Swine Flu


Colorado Avalance head coach Joe Sacco confirmed that backup goalie Peter Budaj has been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Budaj began to feel ill last Thursday with flu-like symptoms and was scratched from Friday’s game against Carolina.

“We’ve taken the necessary steps, the necessary precautions, to keep him away from the guys at the right time,” Sacco said. “Hopefully, he’ll be joining us on this trip.”

There has been no word on how long Budaj will be out, but it makes sense for him to stay away as long as possible, lest he infect the entire NHL. I’ve been saying it for years and now I finally have proof: the Slovakians are going to be the death of the National Hockey League. Everyone laughed at me, but who’s laughing now? Huh? Me!

Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha ha ha ha!

Okay, now I’m done.
