It's amazing how much more you pay for a towel when it is called a sports towel. I saw some so-called sports towels in the sporting goods store the other day. Like this article says, they were nothing more than a regular bath towel, and some were the sizes of a hand towel and a face cloth.
The price, though, was a lot more than I have ever paid for a towel of any kind. It doesn't make sense. When I was playing sports we usually just wiped off the sweat on our uniforms. If you want a towel for sports, take one from your laundry room and go play.
