John Bauer, who wears the beloved Boomer suit at sporting events, was treated for crabs last week. Bauer, a sophomore, discovered he had crabs early last week and immediately went to the Health Center for treatment. His girlfriend, sophomore Erin Green, was angry when she found out. After explaining that he caught them from the Boomer suit, though, she forgave him. Head Cheerleader Rian Bawd also became infested with the parasitic insects after Bauer allowed her to try on the suit last weekend. Both are being successfully treated, and an investigation on how the crab lice got into the suit is underway.
