Rebecca--mais oui!

  • Mood:


Okay, so I'm watching a game on ESPN Classic right now (Iowa at Michigan in 1997--back when Hayden Fry was still at Iowa!) and it reminded me of something I always wondered about.

Why do football players tape their shoes on? Is it to keep them from coming off, or to gain traction? Stabilize the ankle? I'm a chick, so I didn't play to know, but I'm curious. And how long must it take to get that all off after the game!

PS--I know that Iowa & Michigan are in the Big Ten, but I'm not really a big fan of the Big Ten, so my Gateway icon is gonna have to do.
