Over the weekend, we got the super good and cool news that three SDSU football players, including a starting offensive lineman, had come down with a highly contagious disease that was at risk of spreading to the entire team. How exciting!
As this is a developing story, we’ve decided to compile all the chickenpox outbreak updates in one place. This post will be updated as news develops.
(let’s hope there are not too many updates)

It seems we’re up to five now! The two new cases are not being named, what with medical privacy laws and all. This is bad, but totally manageable so long as it does not spread to more …

I’m glad we can all maintain a sense of humor about this.
OK, how did afternoon practice go? Did the Aztecs resort to playing eight-man football because of this wretched ailment? I bet Rocky would be into that, actually.
OK! That seems positive! Just as long as those 10 bepoxed players don’t include any more key offensive linemen. Especially, like, the only one with any starting experience. That would be bad.
I told you to isolate Antonio in a plastic bubble, Rocky! WHY DIDN’T YOU LISTEN TO ME??
But all in all, good day. It seems like we can tone down our panic just a tad. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
