Phil is back!

Wow. What a flood of memories that picture brought back. We also had a tub of “Atomic Balm” by the same company. It was so hot I always thought the coaches were punishing you for being a sissy about your injury if they put it on you. Unbearable pain. I had to ice my thigh for hours one night because they put too much on me and it was so hot. I was in tears. Stuff wouldn’t wash off either.
Served him right. He had a habit of putting that in other people's underwear or jocks. He walked into the shower the color of a well cooked lobster. And no, the shower didn't help.
Edit: Kept my mouth shut about it until now. That former teammate passed in 2008. Guess it is safe to reveal it by now, because he probably had a presence here, but I don't know that for sure.
