St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke does not get sick. Our research team has yet to uncover the scientific reasons for this, but Peter King revealed one of Silent Stan's rare bouts with a bug in his most recent non-essential Monday Morning Quarterback column.

Kroenke's Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup back in 2001. Drinking from Lord Stanley's chalice had an adverse effect on the team's former owner.

Good story from Michaels, about being careful when you drink from the Stanley Cup, about former Avalanche and current Rams owner Stan Kroenke: "Stan is a man who keeps himself in tip-top shape and never gets sick. When his Avalanche won the Stanley Cup in 2001, he got sick as a dog a few days later and was bedridden for two weeks. He told me he traced it to drinking out of the Cup after the game. So celebrants beware.''

Fortunately, the Lombardi Trophy is such that liquids cannot be consumed from its surface. Kroenke began an inoculation program to get his Rams team healthy enough to one day find out whether or not winning the NFL's most coveted prize.
