Sports-Star Foodies

By Jen Murphy Posted August 10, 2009

As New York magazine has observed, star athletes are turning into foodies. Tour de France teams now hire chefs trained at the elite Culinary Institute of America. NBA players are searching for authentic hummus. And earlier this year, hockey player Sean Avery of the New York Rangers even opened a sports bar/restaurant, Manhattan's Warren 77, serving incredible garlic fries and roast chicken.

Athletes may need to start keeping their inner restaurant critic in check though. San Diego Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie was recently fined $2,500 after Tweeting that the bad food served at training camp may be the reason his football team can’t seem to reach the Super Bowl.
