Hey, though I’m busy
disowning trying to fix the Cubs, I’ve been keeping an eye on the other series. You know, because I love Frank TV, Captain Morgan, Holiday Inn Express, The Leverage, and — again — Frank TV.
So what have I noticed? Not that much, actually. I got a new iPod Touch so I’ve really just been playing a ton of air hockey. But check out Mike Lowell’s hand guard thinger. I’ve seen various versions of the hand protector before — Alfonso Soriano wears one against righties as a result of this (even though everybody knows it’s just going to be sliders in the dirt), and Jeff Bagwell always wore one after breaking his hand in 1994.
Lowell’s appears to be made from — or is at least similar to — the bottom plastic flap from a shin guard. He’s been wearing it for some time, but this is probably the best look we’ll get. How’s it attached? Velcro? Regardless, it’s cool stuff, other than the broken hand that made it necessary. — Bryan
Bonus coverage: I tried very hard to make a main entry out of this. I don’t know if there are words to describe it. Happy WNBA playoffs.
