    This is an IDEA award winner from the Industrial Designers Society of America. I can't get over the name of the new-fangled athletic cup: The Nutty Buddy.

    Have fun ...

    OUCH!

    And it doesn't look big enough to protect everyone.

    Two things:

    1. I always thought the shape of a "cup" was wrong. (Though this thing looks like a pretzel dish.)

    2. Who was the lucky bastard who got to test a pitch in the nads at 100 mph?

    Isn't a Nutty Buddy a prepackaged ice cream cone with chocolate and nuts?
    It's similar to a Drum Stick.

    Love the Nutty Buddy. My favorite ice cream treat since I was a kid.

    My baby brother was heavily responsible for getting this product developed and marketed.  A bronze award winner in the same competition.

    Please allow me a moment to brag....

    I love them, too.
    It must be a regional thing, because I never saw Drum Sticks when I was a kid. It was always Nutty Buddies.

    It needs a better name... like Ball Blocker, Nad Net, Bean Bag cover... something.

    I think Mark Littell taking a fastball in the nads from an Iron Mike is testimonial enough...

    Sure, make fun of those with one nut. Isn't being John Kruk punishment enough?
