The US military probably has something. I bet those solders have their nuts full bullet-proofed.

Probably a good practical solution, too. I mean, heck, we've all taken an armour-piercing round to the gentleman vegetables. This technology should be commercially available!

the cup will (usually) give you 'didnt lose your nuts even though it hurt for weeks' protection.

I doubt you could wear anything that would still allow you to play hockey (read: move properly) that would entirely safeguard your nuts. They're in a place with some pretty important joints (read: hips) quite close by.

I was doing lines in a Bantam AAA game a few years back, the D-man was clearing the puck out of their defensive zone. He took a slap shot and all I could see that the shot coming straight for me, I turn to the shot and it hit me square in the nuts. The crowd made a collective Ohhhhhhhhh and I hit the ice.

Now I'm a little surprised that it doesn't happen more often.

I don't want to get too graphic here, but I know from experience (not me, thankfully, and not nearly as hard a shot, thankfully for the dude who took it) that though cups provide a great deal of protection, the somewhat fluid nature of a man's reproductive organs can lead to shifting, to put it diplomatically,

I'm just impressed that you are taking the time to enter the code to color the "Playoff Memory of the Day" segment. That first one must have taken you forever.

getting a slapshot directly into the nuts like Patrick Thoresen

I always assumed they had some cement re-enforced lucite/titanium hybrid down there. Now I'm a little surprised that it doesn't happen more often.
