    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota high school wrestling programs were suspended Tuesday because of a widespread herpes outbreak.

    The Minnesota State High School League banned competitions and direct contact between wrestlers in practice until Feb. 6 after 24 cases of herpes gladiatorum were reported by 10 teams. The virus is spread by skin-to-skin contact, and symptoms include lesions on the face, head and neck.

    Yikes!!!

    When I was in High School some guys didn't shower the day of a match, ate garlic and would have chopped onions in a bag to rub on themselves before the match. Some were able to have 2-3 days of stubble on their face just to be more irritating.
