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.
