The Atlanta Falcons weren't taking any chances when they hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Georgia Dome this weekend, going so far as to send in a specially outfitted cleaning crew in hazmat suits to clean out the visiting locker room to prevent a MRSA outbreak.

It's 2013 in the country's most popular sport, and the last line of defense to prevent an infectious disease outbreak is the poor crew who drew the short-straw on morning shift duty. I hope they got an extra day of vacation or something.
MRSA is no laughing matter -- but this looks like the strangest forgotten episode of "Breaking Bad" we've ever seen.
