I immediately went and bought a cup. Needless to say I never forgot a cup again and I'll never step on the ice without one now. I made a stupid kid call and I learned my lesson.
Along the lines of this, I forgot my cup in my outdoor ball hockey league in the spring. I play goalie. We're supplied with (crappy) padding, and so to be safe I took a piece of padding from a broken helmet and rolled tape around my groin to hold it in place. Low and behold, second period, took a shot to the pads. I was perfectly fine, wouldn't have been otherwise.
