I could be wrong, but didn't athletes back in the day suck it up and play through their pink-eye and their sneezes?
And that was back when thirty thousand a year was big money.
Now you got guys making thirty thousand per game and more, for fucks sakes, and you're reading about the Jays losing a guy to a sneeze and the Brewers being brought low by a pink-eye epidemic.
This used to be the game you'd cut school for to watch an afternooner.
I'm guessing those days are over...
