    i use a combo tight briefs that have a hole cut out for a cup. they are for baseball players i think. then i wear underarmour shirt usually. i swear by them, it sucks the sweat to the top, just wipe it off with a towel and your body is like fully refreshed

    I love Under Armour stuff. You should also try the sliding shorts. Pocket for a cup, and pads on the hips/legs for those hard hip hits.

    For those looking to buy, you can either check out the website:

    www.underarmour.com

    or check out:

    www.eastbay.com

    to compare Under Armour with it's competitors.

    Are we talking shorts as in underwear, or shorts as in outerwear?

    I wear athletic briefs (works like a jock strap, but looks like normal underwear) and a cup...

    And whatever T-shirt I happen to throw in my bag...

    I also wear athletic briefs with a soft cup (having been hit in the happy sack before now I find this invaluable). Don't wear anything but a plastron under my Jacket.
    I have a Duellist jacket with a wicking lining so a t-shirt tends to absorb the sweat and not allow it to be wicked away (if that's a word!).

    Wouldn't it be wet and slimy to not wear anything at all underneath? Ugh, I could only imagine the stench in the car on the way home.
