High School Wrestling Sparks Herpes Outbreak

Thanks to The Big Lead for this one.

Vacation started early this year for the kids at St. Peter’s Prep in New Jersey thanks to a herpes outbreak brought on by the wrestling team. Unfortunately, this is not the sexually transmitted herpes, which would have made for copius amounts of laughter. This particular form of the disease is transmitted when skin touches an open lesion. Still pretty gross. Five players from the team tested positive as well as one wrestler at Nutley High School, which had a match against St. Peter’s this season.

The school closed after classes on Monday and will reopen on January 3rd. The wrestling area has been disinfected, so it will be safe for the boys to roll around on the floor together when they get back.

Commence Dirty Jersey jokes.

"This is not the sexually transmitted herpes."--Right up there with "Don't worry, it's the good cholesterol" and "It's the best type of cancer you can have, the doctor said" for dubiously reassuring disease statements. Um...that's good...but it's still herpes, right?

I loved this, as men rolling around on a mat, kinda still creeps me out...ive dated a few wrestlers, my brothers were both wrestlers, but yeah,,, creepy.
