Notre Dame Women Recover From Food Poisoning

No “home cooking” jokes. Please.

Muffet McGraw, coach of the Notre Dame women’s basketball team, was in no mood for celebrating her 600th career win the day after her team defeated the University of Louisville 78-60 last Tuesday.

Instead McGraw, her husband, 10 players and some staff members were doing some heavy heaving. Seems they were stricken by food poisoning following a post-game meal at a Louisville restaurant.

The fourth-ranked Irish were forced to cancel practices on both Wednesday and Thursday, giving team members time to recover from the effects. They apparently did, defeating 16th-ranked West Virginia 74-66 on Sunday.

The name of the restaurant has yet to be revealed.

    From what I heard, the bad food came from the post game box meal that is given to visiting teams. If this is true, it is not the first time that poor quality food and SportsService at the KEC have been associated.

    Why were they eating a meal that late, had to be around 10:30 to 11 p.m.

    Don’t know if it’s any different but when I went to a couple games this year, we ate in the VIP room at the north end of Freedom Hall and it was catered by Centerplate.
