The game between the Rockets and the Spokane Chiefs on Sunday has been postponed after 11 members of the Chiefs were diagnosed with food poisoning. The Chiefs game tonight against the Tri City Americans has been postponed until Tuesday while the Rockets game in Spokane will be played Monday night. I want to wish all the players involved a speedy recovery. Food poisoning is no fun.
Update at 1:30 pm. Apparently the Chiefs participated in a group function meal late in the week, and the sickness has nothing to do with a pre-game or post-game meal prior to or after a win Friday night over Tri City. It's been suggested that the combination of the food poisoning and the wicked road schedule, which essentially wreaks havoc on the immune system, may be to blame.
