Top 10 Vomiting Moments in Sports History (With Video)
There are times as an athlete when you push yourself to great lengths. You push yourself past what the human body is telling you is normal. And it is at that moment when you...barf. Ninety-nine percent of the time they seem to do great things after blowing chunks. It amazes me.
These are 10 moments in sports where athletes lose there lunch right in the thick of things.
Warning what you are about to see is truly disgusting.
10. Riley Cooper Calls The Walrus
Riley Cooper had a career day in Florida's 2009 season opener against Charleston Southern. Cooper was battling the flu, but still managed to catch five passes for 105 yards despite hurling at the end of the first half.
Pretty impressive numbers while battling the flu even though I've never heard of Charleston Southern before writing this article.
9. Beckham Barfs
David Beckham loses his load three times due to dehydration only to come back and score the goal that took England into their third successive tournament quarterfinal.
Pretty impressive, but I think he got the five finger technique from Victoria—so she deserves some of the credit, too.
8. Alvin Gentry Loses His Lunch
Game Five of the Western Conference Finals Suns coach Alvin Gentry can't stomach watching Kobe drain threes. Or maybe it was the site of Steve Nash's battered face. We'll never really know.
His daughter tweeted this: "it was actually a fried artichoke that made my dad sick."
There you go, tweeps: Fried artichoke made Alvin Gentry puke.
Let's just see if Doc Rivers has a stronger stomach.
7. Best Blows Chunks
Cal running back Jahvid Best has taken a beating during his college football career. His dive for the end zone against Oregon State was one of the scariest injuries I've ever seen in sports.
In this video, Best evacuates all he ate after taking a huge hit against Maryland's Kevin Barnes.
Things aren't looking any better for Jahvid as he's going to don a Lions jersey this season.
6. North Shore Rugby Player Blows Chunks
Mroz "The Vomit Comet" goes 80 yards for the score and loses his lunch in a game against the St. Lambert's Locks from Montreal.
The commentary is what makes this video so funny. The guy is absolutely unrelenting, it's hysterical.
5. Cade McKnown Hurls On The 48
So maybe the Bears regret taking McNown with the 12th overall pick in the 1999 draft. But I don't think the Bears ever contemplated shoving their fists down their throats.
In 1998 two highly ranked teams, UCLA and Oregon, went head to head in an epic game. UCLA quarterback Cade McNown wasn't playing at his highest level. But suddenly magic struck. McNown threw up under center and after that moment he heated up. McNown led his team to a truly amazing overtime victory.
4. Falls Wrestler Woofs
In a wrestling meet between rivals Hamilton and Falls, the Hamilton wrestler turns his opponent's arm 180 degrees in the wrong direction.
I don't care who you are, that's enough to make any man mouth cry.
3. Vomit Assault
Another Philadelphia sports fan gets out of hand at a Phillies game. He intentionally threw up on an off duty police officer and his 11-year-old daughter. That's right, I said intentionally.
Although this video doesn't show the act that took place, the story itself was enough to make No. 3 on my list.
When does it end with these Philly sports fans?
2. Matty Ice Takes A Big Spit
After Heisman candidate Matt Ryan hurls a nice TD pass to take down Virginia Tech, he hurls a nice portion of his lunch onto the ground.
If Matty Ice's stomach isn't strong enough to handle a comeback win against VT, imagine what would happen if he threw a game-winning TD against Peyton and the Colts in the Super Bowl. His head would explode!
1. Sampras Spits Up
Now this one is impressive. Slammin' Pete Sampras hurls during a 1-1 tie in the fifth set of the 1996 US Open. Then after he's done vomiting, the ump gives him a delay of game.
The most shocking part in this whole ordeal is that Sampras goes on to beat his opponent, Corretja, 9-7 and win the Open.
Sorry about the long video, the puking starts at around 4:40
