no pads, no helmets, no balls

A little known fact....

The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874
The first helmet was used in 1974.
That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

ok, well the helmet was actually used in the 1940s, but get it.

below is a pic of Dick Plasman of the Chicago Bears. the last man to play without a helmet, which was in 1940 when the Chicago Bears played the Washington Redskins
