    How do you fit these things???? Mine didn't come with instructions...

    Do you put it in hot water for 10 seconds and then bite and then repeat then in cold water?

    I'm stumped...as usual. :D
     
  2. boil water, stick the mouthguard in, take it out after a few seconds, stick'er in your mouth, bite down, but not through it, keep it in for either 45 seconds or a minute, i can't remember, and then put it in cold water. put the mouthguard back in your mouth, and punch yourself in the face.
    the cold water cools the mouthguard so the teethmarks stay in...

    Had to Google that term, myself. Apparently it's Yiddish for "can of whoopass." :D

    Best thing is to crush up mints to a sort of fine powder.. Then sprinkle some in before you wear it.. Mmmmm.

    Other flavours can be used.. but, well, tend not to be as 'fresh' after a while.
     
  12. For my rugby mouthguards, a quick rinse with water did the job minutes before kick off. I honestly never thought of mints.

    None of the Rugby players I ever knew in college even
    used mouthguards.
     
  14. They're either brave or stupid. I wouldn't play without one. In fact, there's a mouth guard inspection before each half where I play.

    You'll have to remember that back when Thor was in college, they still played football with those funny little leather helmets and game footage came accompanied by that tin pan alley piano music...

    :D ;)

    Actually, that was the 'Iron Men of 1916' who played in the first 'Tournament of Roses' against Washington State in
    Pasadena, Jan 1 1916

    In related news, the Alma Mater took sole possession of the
    Ivy title for the first time in 125 years. I have had to see more
    losers than the Red Sox for all that time.
