Hockey players keep some seriously dumb things in their hockey bag.
Aside from the essentials, certain scrubs insist on keeping random, and completely unnecessary items that just sit and rot with their gear. Some of it is due to hoarding and some is simply a result of laziness.
So let's take a look at stupid things found in hockey bags that a lot of players can relate on in some way.
EMPTY BODY WASH AND SHAMPOO BOTTLES
There's a garbage can in every dressing room. Yet players insist on throwing their empty ones back in the garbage. What, have you become attached to them or something? To the point where you can't let them go? Do yourself a favour and throw them out for crying out loud. It's a waste of space and you know it.
Another absolutely useless item to have in your bag. What's the point? You collect your tape, grow it into a big ball, and then what? It's just dead weight that will make your walk from the car to the dressing that much worse. If you really want to build one, just leave it at home.
IN WHAT WORLD ARE YOU USING NEON GREEN TAPE!!!! Or blue for that matter? Just got with the classic white or black. If you're really feeling ambitious, feel free to go with flame or skull... actually scrap the white or black, just got with flame or skull.
We've all been guilty of this one before. Use that towel TOPS three times and then change it up. A wet towel will add a ton of unnecessary weight in your bag. This one is so easy to avoid and will help your bag smell better at the same time.
ENERGY DRINK BOTTLES
If you want to re-use your bottle then that's fine, but don't let it just sit there in-used. Recycle it so it could be put to use again in another way, it doesn't need to sit with your stinky gear.
THROW YOUR RIPPED LACES OUT AND DO YOUR LAUNDRY! IT'S NOT HARD! THIS STUFF GROWS MOLD!!!! Be better.
Okay, so let us now ask you: What did we miss?!
