04:03 pm - the game hasn't changed but the technology has...
So, I lost a tennis match to beststephi (7-6, 7-5). But the really interesting thing about it all was that I played the game wearing some of my new work out clothes that I bought for wrestling school. Specifically, I wore Under Armour™ performace apparel. Under Armour makes several collections of work out clothing, including heatgear™ which I am currently wearing. It's a weird spandex blend that's designed for "moistrure transport" (equally distributing your sweat across your body to keep you cool). After wearing the sleeveless t-shirt and the compression shorts for two hours of tennis, I have to say it worked out pretty well. I felt nice and cool the entire time I was playing, and its probably the most comfortable spandex that I have ever worn. Like a second skin. I can barely tell I am wearing anything. They also have loosegear™ which are non-spandex microfiber versions of all the heatgear products so that you can have your lightweight moisture transport while maintaining a loose fit. Next I need the loosegear shorts and heatgear tanktop (you know, my birthday is coming up... I'm just saying is all). Once it gets colder, I'll have to try their coldgear™, which is lightweight insulated spandex. If its half as comfortable as the heatgear, it should be perfect for skiing. In particular I think the black snow shirt is just incredibly choice.

And lest the ladies feel left out, there is a women's collection as well, featuring female cuts of most of the men's clothing as well as sports bras, leggings and sport skirts(for tennis or field hockey or whatever).

Anyway... highly recommended...

Um, chiming in just 'cause it needs to be said again: Under Armour is the best. No question. My mock turtleneck could be worn winter or summer and do a fine job at either time as part of our uniform. Never tried it for sports though....

Um, right. Introductions. Sorry 'bout that. Familiar names showing up on Friends' friends lists and I forget intros.

Arclight from DPB is probably how you're most likely to know me. Not a PGH resident, but rather NP. Never met you but your name comes up and anyone who's certifiable enough to be into wrestling has my vote of support. And folding chairs to spare.

I just was raving to someone about Under Armour the other day, so I couldn't restrain myself from commenting. Even if it was a bit out of the blue.

Do you get kickbacks?

no... but I was just kinda wondering if I could get that set up somehow... like the label says: "you'll never wear normal underwear again"

I want to know how much they're paying you for the glowing endorsement.
