Bacon Flu Hits Bacon Baseball Team

Two players and the head coach of a top Japanese baseball team have come down with bacon flu, and six other players are showing symptoms.

The team in question? The Nippon Ham Fighters. They got their silly name after being bought up by a meatpacking company in the 1970s.

Seems like a great opportunity to rename themselves the Nippon Ham Flu Sufferers.
