This is our bye week, and as is tradition, the OL all headed out to a local AYCE establishment after practice yesterday. This time, they chose the new Chinese buffet down the street. Its the same chit food you find at any place in the country, but the kids like it, and they have a hibachi station, so I'm happy. It was a really fun evening!!
Then about mid-3rd plate, our backup C, with no warning, projectile vomits all over the table. It hits the kid sitting across from him, then the kid puts his hand over his mouth and the dregs of the stream splash onto the two kids on either side of him. I got up from the table faster than I thought possible with the excuse to go inform the wait staff... who, due to a slight language barrier, had no idea what I was telling them. The rest of the kids followed me out slowly, while the one kid just kept puking all over his plate. When they asked us if we wanted a new table, we politely informed them that we would just take our checks. We paid, the sick kid mopped himself off in the bathroom, and we all drove ourselves home.
On a side note, there was a family sitting at the table next to us. They had been well-established by the time we sat down to eat. They simply moved to a new table and continued eating.
Reminds me a time of a few years ago when we lost a game because a restaurant fed us and the kids ate like 2 pounds of banana pudding each and were puking all over the sidelines.
My freshman year at JUCO, the dining hall served the team some sort of Beef Stroganoff for pre-game meal. We lost 15 kids during the game to diarrhea. Every few plays a different kid would grab his stomach and run off the field.
Last year The OL and I went to Quaker Steak and Lube for wing night before the first game. Everybody did a pretty good job being responsible with their intake, until 2 dumb young guys decide to order their hottest wings to prove their toughness. The kid who actually ate all 6 ended up puking in the lobby right in front of the hostess station, couldn't make it outside in time.
We weren't invited back.
Edit - Not the night before the game, but week of.
