Why do NFL players wear towels attached to their uniforms? It makes no sense.

I get that a QB might want a towel to wipe his hands or forearms down, but virtually every other player on the field wears gloves. And since the towels stay tucked into the unis the whole time, it's not like they're being used to wipe faces or anything else. It's the strangest little affectation.

I remember doing this in football. I don't remember it serving a purpose, it was a fashion statement.

In high school my best friend played on the basketball team. He would always wear one long tube sock on his left leg pulled way up and on the other foot an ankle sock. This reminded me of that.

Was he any good?

It's like football players with silver/gold boots..

If you're Messi , that is bearable..

If you're an amateur or an average pro, you will look like a twat..

I don't get why for so many people, there's no middle ground. It seems that pen usage is a dichotomy for most: you either use complete crap, or an in your face status symbol. It seems odd to me that there aren't more people using stuff like the Parker Jotter- a nice looking ballpoint or gel that looks like something a mature adult would use, writes well enough (and far better than a bic), and doesn't cost a fortune.

Well, you either give a damn, or you don't. No one I know of lusts after a Cross ballpoint - they're in the no-man's land of 'everyone can afford it' and 'most everyone's gotten one at some point in their life'.

Sometimes I use a fountain, sometimes a ballpoint, sometimes it's nice and other times not. It just depends on situation and setting. But I've gotten to the point where I don't want Really Really Nice, since I tend to not use those kinds of things.
