Blasted Swine: Kyle Okposo has H1N1 flu

Yesterday he was getting time on defense in practice (just for numbers with Mark Streit having the day off, honest). Today Kyle Okposo has been diagnosed with the H1N1 "swine" flu. Coincidence?

Damn pigs. Okposo follows teammate Doug Weight, who had it in mid-October. That's a fine how-do-you-do for the start of a seven-game road swing. I guess the Isles don't have to worry about who sits for the returning-to-health Trent Hunter anymore.

We can talk about the need for better public health policies, and we can talk about washing hands and the what-not. But when #21 gets the swine flu and messes with our Islanders hockey, well that's when it's time to get medieval.

(I'm not really sure what that last sentence means. It just felt right. And it's fun when The People gloss over real issues until it messes with important things like TV. Almost as fun as general panic in the populace.)
