Did I just see a Ukranian football player wearing a sports bra?

Post by FranTastic444 »

I was full of beer, so maybe that explained things. I'd started off around noon with a colleague drinking beers in a sports bar around the corner from the TD Garden as we watched England beat Germany in the European Championship. After England won the game there was a fairly large contingent of Brits who wanted to party and the drink was still flowing freely as the next game came on the screen. We had an interest in this as whoever won out of Ukraine and Sweden will be playing England on Saturday.

Deep into extra time, Artem Dovbyk scores the winning goal and whips off his top as part of his celebrations Did my eyes deceive me, or was that man wearing a sports bra?????

And an explainer here.

As an aside, ,Carl - we ended up in JJ Foleys as we staggered our way back to South Station :-)

I figured there was something to "a Ukranian football player wearing a sports bar", but wasn't entirely sure of what it was until I saw the imagery.

It would appear that somebody's channeling Brandy Chastain in that image.

How is the old place? I've not been there in positively years. I should "chuck a sickie" and head into Beantown for a day.

I'll make a suggestion here: That we reshuffle those letters and stick with the description, 'Sports Bra'

Btw. For my money, I'm so besotted with the game that if they cancelled/banned all football World-wide tomorrow, I wouldn't even notice.

Maybe it is a short form of a crop top - "T" shirt -
He is hiding some contra band substance - game enhancement elixir -
Out in the sun and needed to cover the tan lines -
Covering up a disfigured skin injury not presentable for public viewing -
Uniform violation protest of sorts -

Simply he is making a STATEMENT - what it is I don't know !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Ooops - title corrected!

There was a fair crowd in there. Not up to pre COVID levels of patronage, but I’m just glad that the place has managed to stay in business. Let me know if you have plans to visit - would be great to catch up again.

This came up first a couple of years ago when they wanted heart monitors and such. The first versions gave complaints about comfort, so apparently they approached bra manufacturers to make more comfortable versions. Obviously they have a lot of experience :)
