I doubt it very much. If you'll remember, the usual definition of food poisoning is actually “food contamination”. And I don't believe any Kings fan would be low enough to try that sort of thing.
A Celtics fan, maybe. LOL...
I think it's just as likely that Kobe is faking the whole thing. That way if the Lakers lose, he'll have an excuse. And if they win, he'll look like a courageous hero, triumphing over everything including his own illness.
“Over the course of history, the kiss of a woman has poisoned a lot of great minds.”
Thank you, thank you. I learned a hard lession a couple of years ago and that was not to overanalyze anything. Anyway, even though I picked Maryland, my heart will be cheering for Indiana. It would be nice to see Bobby Knight get his for once.
