Last year Warren Sapp revealed that he had been poisoned while eating meals on the road. It appears that a similar case of food poisoning may have struck the Norwich City soccer team.
Norwich City's preparations for the new second division season have been hit by vomiting and diarrhoea following a social event for players, staff and their families.
Four players were among some 30 people taken ill following a barbecue at the club's training ground on Sunday. The club said in a statement it had contacted the local environmental health authorities about the incident.
I'm actually surprised that this doesn't happen a bit more often with how overzealous some fans can be. I guess that's just proof of how good the quality control is with respect to the food that the players are eating. Or maybe the teams have learned from Emperor Claudius, and they employ trustworthy food tasters.
