An athletic cup is much appreciated protection from random kicks from both opponents and your own team, but what about it's effect on speed? Could making a cup that is softer plastic, with the only hard plastic part being a cage-like scrotum protector, make a running-back a little faster?

The Scrotum Cage can do just that! Sewn into a specially designed underwear, it cradles those babies so dearly, you'll want to wear it whenever you go out to town!

       I was hoping for something a bit more medieval. Wrought iron bars with rusty squeaking hinges. Maybe a few rats ...

       I like the thought, cups are usually quite large and uncomfortable to be wearing as a normal casual defense. This would be more like a minimal brain bucket instead of the fully enclosed race helmet.   

       Just be sure that the edges don't cut into anything nearby when it does take an impact. Also the material must not crush, well because then you'd be stuck in a vise instead of protected. Steel-toe shoes have been known to do this, actually severing toes instead of protecting them if what falls on them is too heavy.

       wonder why the original design didn't include some well-placed cartilage or something.

       [FT], It was probably the same engineer responsible for the exhaust vent design on the death star.

       The best solution of course is to fill your shorts with non-Newtonian custard.

Police in three counties were out last night in pursuit of an enraged feral scrotum which had escaped from its cage when the owner carelessly left it unlocked ...

       It's a clever excuse, [perty] but you'll still end up paying the child-support.

       It was Friday, it was late, and we were tired. Shit happens.
