Pro athletes do all sorts of weird/funny/stupid things to motivate themselves and build chemistry. Unfortunately -given the way things went - this one was more high-profile than most. I'm simply not gonna get too down on these guys for consciously trying to do something to give themselves and edge - even if it wasn't all that effective.
I agree. I'm all for team-building and camaraderie; I was just commenting about how un-professional the jackets looked, and about how it's likely McNair shelled out some serious cash. I'd be shocked if those jackets ran for less than $1000 a pop.
