Lululemon reports that a lot of NHL players wear their boxers (which, euphemistically speaking, keeps one's junk in place), but because of other endorsement deals can't say who.

the image in that article is gold:


but yeah, i assume players/teams have comprehensive equipment endorsements that prevent them from naming any other brands they wear on the ice.

Similar to the Chara Coke (or was it Pepsi?) incident.

That discussion between Setoguchi and Mitchell made me somewhat uncomfortable

Wait, so Setoguchi and Torrey Mitchell were openly talking about sharing underwear but the big story here is that Lululemon is an unofficial sponsor?

I hate how every time I go to open a Yahoo article on my phone I get redirected to the sports homepage.

/end rant

I wonder what kind of patents they have. If they don't have any Reebok (Adidas) could make them exactly the same and attach NHL branding to it.

Haha, that was happening to me in the past two days as well. Looks like Yahoo has fixed it now. I'm glad it wasn't just my phone. I always use Yahoo for looking at players' stats (ex. I would google "Jonathan Toews Yahoo"). I was using ESPN temporarily.

yeah, i think pepsico is official hydration of the athletes.

it's complicated though, because TD Garden is all coca-cola.
