Ok. Full admission here. I've spent some time recently looking at male appendages. No, I haven't been perusing the gay porn pages, thank you GG, Hammer, Mudge and Tom de Plume--I've been watching NFL Football. It seems that the penchant for tight, spandexy trousers, technologically advanced slow motion photography and and the large scale eschewing of the old fashioned jock strap and cup have teamed up to provide the average Sunday (or Monday, Thursday, or Saturday) NFL fan with near anatomically correct closeups of the male phallus. It appears that the same aversion to undercarriage shielding prevails in the college ranks.
I wondered whether it were only me who noticed this trend....but apparently not. This article says that there hasn't been a cup worn by a Philadelphia Eagle since 1999! Holy Moly.
