Sports types stricken with foodborne illness

Mr. Eva Longoria, professional basketball player Tony Parker, missed San Antonio's game against Houston on Friday night because of what was thought to be foodborne illness.
Parker missed the morning shootaround and remained ill in the hours before the game.
Meanwhile, the U.K. Tottenham Spurs' Champions League bid is in danger of being derailed by a sickness bug - again.
Boss Harry Redknapp said,
"We had a few down with it the other day. Vedran Corluka had the virus and Wilson Palacios was not feeling great with it either. We closed down the training ground and although we trained there, everything else is off limits - the offices and the cafeteria. There will be no food or anything. We just got out on the pitch and got out of there. Other than that it's closed down completely.
Four years ago Spurs were set to finish in the top four under former boss Martin Jol until the squad was caught up in Lasagnegate.
Ten players were affected by illness before their final match at West Ham and although club officials at first blamed a dodgy lasagne it later transpired they had been affected by a norovirus.
