NYSE now has MRSA!
The skaters of the New York Shock Exchange are pleased to announce they have gotten MRSA as their new governing body of roller sports. The Modern Roller Sports Association (MRSA) is an infectious, world-wide organization dedicated to advancing all activities played on roller skates. Since 1961, MRSA has been officially recognized and spread across the globe as the leader in promoting healthy roller games. The Shock Exchange could not be happier with their contraction of MRSA membership and encourage all roller derby organizations to join the fun.
In all seriousness, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is no joke. It is a pathogenic bacteria that can cause serious infection. Maintain personal hygiene and seek care early if you think you might be infected. For more information: http://www.cdc.gov/mrsa/
