Did You Know?

ESPN used to have a segment on Sportscenter called Did You Know? in which they would regale us with obscure statistics. I consider myself a pretty knowledgeable sports fan, but yesterday I learned two things I did not know before. And, frankly, they shocked me.

Did you know that professional football players do not wear cups? I heard Mark Shlareth, Stink, on Mike & Mike say that during his career, he never saw anyone wear a cup. That is shocking!

Did you know that Nascars do not have gas gauges? I heard a driver on Jim Rome talking about how they have to calculate MPGs and hope they run out of gas. That is shocking!

  • Adian Beltre of the Seattle Mariners was recently put on the DL after getting hit there while not wearing a cup. i can’t imagine baseball players playing without a cup either, but some of them do apparently. i’ve got to think that catchers at least wear one.
    by the way, i’ve decided i’m going to follow your blog. i want to follow culturally relevant post-modern theological thought so i’m going to give this a whirl. you’d be welcome over at my blogspace too if you like.
