The Nutty Buddy: Your boys' best protection

Former major leaguer Mark Littell has created a new athletic cup that’s supposed to be hard as a rock. The cup is called the Nutty Buddy (I kid you not). To show how strong the cup is, Littell had baseballs shot at his protected crotch. From the AP:

In case their kids need encouraging, Mr. Littell's cups come with macho names: 'Hammer,' 'Boss,' 'Hog' and for really big men, the XL-sized 'Mongo,' a salute to the ogre-like character in the movie 'Blazing Saddles.'

"I'm a hick,' he says with a chuckle when asked about the names. 'I'm from the country.'"
