why is there black tape on Jae'Sean Tate's shoulder?

It's Kinesio Tape - here's a little something I pulled off line. Mrs Linga works with this stuff daily and swears by it.

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio® Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

I think it's to support the #me too movement in his shoulder as well as the #times up for the surgical repairs healing, gives it more support just like the black dresses at the globes and the women only presenters at the sags. When the tape goes pink, it's to support breast awareness-cancer type, M&F. When the players wear black soled shoes to play, while the coaches wear tennis shoes, it just means it's a convoluted world that's all mixed up and we just live in it, and miss a lot of signals from others on how we should live our lives like they live theirs, perfectly, I suppose. Sigh.
