Someone Keeps Stealing Sean Lee's Underwear And Socks

Serious question: Who the fuck keeps taking Sean Lee's underwear and socks from the Cowboys' locker room, thereby forcing him to freeball his way home after games?

Lee made the revelation during an appearance yesterday afternoon with Ben & Skin on Dallas-Forth Worth's KRLD-FM. The full audio is here, with Lee addressing the situation beginning at the 1:45 mark. But this is how the conversation unfolded:

I haven't gotten to the bottom of it yet. I don't know if it's a prank, or if it's the equipment guys just cleaning up, but it's not funny either way. It's a long ride home, let's just say that. ... After the games, it's been about a 50 percent chance of them taking my socks and underwear, which is a problem.

At this point in the interview, one of the hosts offers to bring Lee some clean underwear the next time the host is in the locker room. It was an awkward suggestion. The other host then chimed in to say it might be weird if dude did that. There was some uncomfortable laughter. Mercifully, the conversation moved on.


Lee does not know whether any of his teammates have been victimized by a similar heist.

I think I'm wearing the spandex under my suit—you know, the spandex underwear, like the Under Armour stuff, so I think they think that it's part of the equipment, maybe, and the equipment guys just take it. So I don't know if it;s happening to anybody else, but I need to find a way to get to the bottom of it and make sure I have underwear when I leave the locker room.

Cowboys beat reporters: You have your assignment.
