Chan Ho Park Diarrhea Video: Park Talks About Diarrhea
Chan Ho Park Didn't Mince Words About His Recent Health Problems. He Told Reporters That He Had 'A Lot of Diarrhea.' Here's the Chan Ho Park Video
Let's face it, most athlete interviews are boring. Jocks tend to spout platitudes and never really say anything, especially when they're injured. Teams can also be incredibly tight-lipped about an athlete's condition. Often the only info you get is that someone has an "upper body injury" or "lower body injury." Well Yankees pitcher Chan Ho Park definitely had a lower body injury last week and wasn't shy about it.
Chan Ho Park was asked about reports that he felt ill last week. Park explained that he had a case of diarrhea.

Chan Ho Park isn't the only athlete to have ever suffered a bout of diarrhea. During the 2007 NHL playoffs, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo missed the three minutes of overtime period and was replaced by back-up Dany Sabourin.
At first, it was reported that Luongo had a problem with his goalie equipment. During the offseason, Luongo admitted that he had suffered a case of diarrhea.
