Never mind then. I definitely do remember cooperalls (how could you possibly forget such an ugly piece of equiptment?), but just never really thought of it as a girdle. When I played hockey growing up/through high school I don't remember anyone wearing girdles, but now in beer league I see the odd one here and there. Not sure if they're more popular in general now, or just more popular with old timers than they were with younger players.
