THIS WEEK IN NHL HAIKU – 15/12/14 (ALL MUMPS EDITION)!/fileImage/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/16x9_620/sidney-crosby.jpg

Mumps are happening

In the NHL. Here, some

Thoughts in haiku form.


This week Sid got sick.

Just Ducks and Wild? We laughed.

Now shit’s getting real.


How clear was this case?

Penguins: “No indication.”



Everyone could see

That Pittsburgh brass was lying.

Did they think us blind?


Maybe your team’s next.

If we can’t protect Crosby

Nobody is safe.


Use restraint. Don’t smooch

Players, no matter how great

Their fantasy stats.


More cases seem to

Break out each day. So far it’s

Fifteen guys, five teams.


Plus, it shows no signs

Of slowing down. Booster shots

Might have come too late.


Something must be done.

The NHL, though flawed, should

At least be mumpless.
