Boiling ramen at 1am because life is still happeni
Seriously, what purpose do they serve? If 2/3 of the whole roster wears them, there must be a logical reason...
This is what I've always thought.i thought it was because it's so physically demanding, that you don't want to tear any tissue in your wrist and the same goes for the majority of them with tape on their ankles, similar to football, physical sports that you need to protect yourself in as much as possible, why risk injury on something that can be avoided
Go into your kitchen and find a hard surface.
If you've ever played a sport with taping, the reason is that it kind of holds everything where it should be, especially in areas with lots of tendons, cartiledge etc. It's basically a disposable brace for people that don't want chronic issues later on.
