Back on Monday, Houston Rockets forward Carlos Delfino rejoined the team after being out for two days due to some food poisoning.
While some might question where Delfino got sick, he knows who and what got him sick.
The fine folks over at Ultimate Rockets have those details of how Manu Ginobili might have given Carlos food poisoning:
Delfino returned to Rockets’ shootaround on Monday after missing two days with symptoms of food poisoning that he blames on a piece of sausage he ate as Ginobili’s house on Thursday, the day before the Rockets played the Spurs in San Antonio.
“It’s funny,” Delfino said of dinner with his friend and Argentina National Team teammate. “I went to his house and everyone eats the same, but this little piece of sausage I get. Then when I get to the hotel … by the time I take a shower I ate a little piece of M&Ms. That was the only things I ate different from Ginobili’s family. I’ve been down for 72 hours and they are everybody healthy. He was blaming himself.
“I was kind of frustrated. Those games were important for us. We were talking about it being like a test for the team. Missing the games for me was tough, watching on TV. Maybe next time we play against them I will talk to my wife about putting some sausage for him, or something like that.”
Now we know….don’t trust the Ginobli sausage….
