Several name athletes have dealt with E-Bover the years, and managed it so they could come back competitively. It seems that the ones that keep pushing and don't take the steps necessary to completely get over the stuff are the ones that it permanently retires.
When I was active with motocross and off-road motorcycling it seemed each year a few of the pros would be sidelined with it. Or, one that had been in a long "slump" would finally be diagnosed with E-B. I've heard of pros in several sports coming down with it, as well as college athletes, or even run of the mill high schoolers getting diagnosed. Its supposed to make mono seem like a light head cold, as I understand it.
