Everything about gloves.

Did you see those strange gloves the Seahawks were wearing Sunday?



While enduring yet another Panthers home opening loss one thing did stand out to me besides the
poor performance by our offense. It was seeing Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks wearing a futuristic-looking glove between snaps on Sunday afternoon.

The Seahawks were using the CoreControl Cooling Glove, a device that’s helping athletes across the country in hot situations and used by many NFL and college teams. 

The glove was invented by Stanford doctors. The glove provides physical endurance and performance by reducing body temperature in minutes. The CoreControl CoolingGlove, using only ice and a vacuum, physically extracts excess body heat through only one hand and returns the body temperature to normal range within minutes. Outside Magazine’s Berne Broudy describes the glove as giving a “steroid-like boost” to overall athletic performance – and it’s perfectly legal. 

At $895 a glove it would be nice to be a Cooling Glove distributor. However, I think my idea to set up a Winter Glove kiosk at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey during the Super Bowl in February may be a cool idea, too.
