What is that around MLB players’ necks?

Kai Ryssdal Oct 28, 2010

This final note today, picking up on my earlier observation about the World Series. Am I the only guy who’s been wondering what with those enormous necklaces some of the players have been wearing. I mean, they’re practically horse collars they’re so big. Turns out, should you be so inclined, you can buy ’em online. Just do a search on titanium necklace by a company called Phiten. They’re made — or so it says — of aqua titanium, whatever that is. Helps regulate the body’s natural electric currents through cell ionization. Or something. Whatever.

Giants in six. You heard it here first.
