Jiggy's Jiggly Not Doing So Good

So it turns out Jean-Sebastien Giguère's sports hernia surgery wasn't as much fun as it sounds. The post-surgery 2-month convalescence will keep him from starting the season.

The condition has taken its toll on many athletes over the years, from Donovan McNabb to Danny Brière. Wikipedia describes the sports hernia as:
Athletic pubalgia, also called the sportman's hernia or sports hernia, Gilmore's groin or groin disruption, is a medical condition of the groin affecting sportspeople...
Alright I can't copy anymore. I felt icky at the groin part.
