Performance Apparel

I was in the Sporting Goods store this weekend and hardly recognized anything.  When did they stop making cotton athletic shirts?  Everything in the store was made of dragon scales and boasted hydrofit performance and natural wicking ability.  Their target customer seems to be a cross between Lance Armstrong and a scented candle.  I just want to mow the lawn, I don’t need NASA-grade shirt technology.  The triathlon gear should be 10% of the store, 15% at most.  These clothes are also cut waaay too tight.  You’ve gotta be beyond ripped to avoid looking like an overfilled water balloon.  Olympic swimmers wear baggier clothes.
