Bud Selig is interested in "boosting" player "performance" by keeping moisture off their heads?
On the moisture-managing "performance" materials used in sports apparel:
"We started to think, 'How can those developments be applied to our headwear?'" said John DeWaal, vice president of brand communications at New Era Cap Co., the Buffalo-based manufacturer that holds the cap contract.In another quote:
"We're proud to enact the commissioner's initiatives to bring performance to the field in a major way and really to make our players more comfortable," he said. "It's all about the performance initiative and this is the first major step in a lot of things that are going to be seen throughout the season which are really going to revolutionize our field."I am anxious to see the next major step. Will it be an adjustible hat? I have been waiting for one of those for years now.
Are the little red waves on the side of the ST hats one of the breakthroughs?
Odd Story 2:
Yes Virginia, it is true. a goalie actually had enough time to drop trou, moon the crowd and do the "Happy Gilmore Dance" during a stop in play.
A few questions...
How many minutes did he get in the penalty box?
Wouldn't it be priceless to see the ref doing the hand signals for this penalty?
