I think it was started by that fuckwad Lance Armstrong,  who started the Livestrong Foundation.  I would have thought that the practice would have fallen out of favor when it became clear how he had cheated for years and disgraced himself and his sport,  but I guess some things just stick.

Or it could be what Banana said while I was trying to find a suitable GIF.

Larry Popein, who played 402 NHL games between 1954-55 and 1960-61 with the New York Rangers, then returned to play 47 more in 1967-68 with the Oakland Seals, has died.  He was 89. Popein later served as an assistant general manager with Vancouver Canucks from 1974 to 1986 before joining the Calgary Flames as a scout.

Popien was also an original California (Oakland) Golden Seal.  Can’t be many of those around.
