PFG to miss pre-season opener

Pig Farming Goalie says he'll likely miss next week's pre-season opener, after he became the latest veteran roadster to fall to the off-season injury bug.

The agrarian goaltender says he aggravated an old knee injury when he knocked legs with another player while playing unsanctioned soccer last Thursday. The knee filled with fluid.

"While the injury is far from serious, the swollen joint will need time to allow the fluid to drain," says Pig Farming Goalie, in a statement. He anticipates he'll be ready to return for the season's second exhibition game.

PFG joins Paul One and the Living Legend on the off-season sidelines. One is still rehabilitating a badly broken wrist and the Legend is on the mend after he was hit by a car while dry-land training.
