Naked Moleskin:

1)       Tiger Rag remains on the anti-tights campaign and is ensuring that anyone (YHC included) daring to don the sleek, warmth providing clothing chosen by athletes around the world is mocked.

2)      First sight of frost on the field at DV provoked some cries of “but it’s cold” when the first set of Merkins were called out on the field

3)      Strong work by all on the Electoral College 400’s. Second set of burpees definitely left YHC gasping some cold morning air

Part of Speech: noun
Definition: one-piece undergarment for legs
Synonyms: hose, hosiery, leggings, leotard, nylons, pantyhose, stockings.

Note: “under” garment. Also, that the manliest name is TIGHTS speaks volumes.

Dolphin is apparently under the impression that F3 is a multi-level marketing scheme…brought another EH out to DV this morning after bringing two out Saturday. Got his eye on the Pink Caddy.

Don’t know why a Dolphin EH can’t be named Blow Hole, but my vote was overruled by the Pax, much like my vote yesterday….Dolph, bring an FNG to Skunk Works, where I hold the conch…that’s a quality handle.

Look, Joker, when your calf condoms put off the scent of Ben Gay for 20 yards, it might be time to get a new pair. #oldmansmell. But at least you’re not in lederhosen.

Lederhosen? German-themed workout in the future perhaps? I like it.
Second set of burpees was tough. Thank you very little Uncle Leo.
Good Q today!

And Joker could certainly run down a lot of fly balls in the gap with his sprinter’s speed. F3/DV softball team?

on tights…

Principle = Stay Strong (Mind/Body/Soul)
Preference = Tights or no

That being said.
Compression pants Definition: Undergarments usually worn by athletes. They are form-fitting garments and when worn cover the athlete’s waist to mid or lower thigh. These garments are often made from a spandex-type material, similar to cycling shorts.
A major benefit of compression pants are that they keep the thigh muscles warm to reduce muscle strain and fatigue. In addition, there is some evidence that compression pants may enhance athletic performance.[1] They are also used as a way to keep the male genitalia in place. Compression pants also help to keep undergarments in place, and for certain sports, like baseball and softball (where they are also known as “sliding shorts”), come with padding at the hips to protect players from injuries due to sliding.
Another major benefit is that many compression pants are designed to wick sweat away from the body to lessen chafing and the onset of rashes. The friction between the fabric of the shorts sliding past each other may also be less than that of bare thighs rubbing, which may also reduce chafing during things like walking or running when the thighs are adducted.

Andrew: I don’t wear tights. I wear the required uniform.
Brian: Yeah, tights.
Andrew: Shut up.

I was waiting on that one all the way from the North Country. Well played.

There’s no glory in Chub Rub, sawn-off nipples or your Justifier flapping about. We can agree on that.

To summarize the definition,(emphasis added): “UNDERGARMENTS,,,from waist to mid or lower thigh….similar to cycling SHORTS….[are] also known as ‘sliding SHORTS’….The fabric of the SHORTS may reduce chafing…..”

If I didn’t know better, I’d say our FIGHT FOR TIGHTS supporter pinched the Wikipedia definition for Compression Shorts and substituted “pants.”
(You forgot to mention that jock straps are falling out of favor among the younger set).

You guys in the nylons: get together a form a cogent argument and get back to me.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
