Maybe he shouldn’t have played with a temperature of 102F.
Ben Chew of NBC reports the world of Major League Soccer had its first memorable upchuck moment this week as New England Revolution defender Kevin Alston, in a game against the Colorado Rapids, decided to empty the contents of his stomach during a stoppage of play.
To note, the video clip is not for the squeamish or people who puke easily after seeing someone else vomit:
After the match, Revolution head coach Jay Heaps commented on the puke seen around Foxborough:
“It wasn’t pretty. He just went into a coughing fit and I didn’t know this before the game. So he played through a 102 temperature, and when he got hit, he went into a coughing fit that’s why he got sick.”
