The big story in college ball this week is that a Va. Tech player puked on the floor during the Hokies win at Maryland (video), which brings to mind the original player with the sickness. From an old Washington Post chat:
Al – D.C.: We’d all be remiss if we didn’t remember Rod Strickland puking up hot dogs during Bullets games.
Michael Wilbon: Yes, and that would often happen on the bench, after Rod ate hot dogs from the press room, sometimes with reporters. This is an actual conversation from a Rod Strickland hot dog grab one night.
Reporter: Rod, you can’t eat that. You’ll get sick and throw up!
Rod: I know. Won’t be the first time…or the last…Can you slide me that mustard?
Zing! 1989 Hoops Rod Strickland, you will go on to become “the MOST underrated player of my generation” and the current Memphis director of student-athlete development. We salute you and your half-smokes.
