Reader Mark passed along this photo of Elisha wearing a watch under his wristband during practice reps. A required accessory to get Timex to sponsor your practice unis? Let’s hope not. The folks at Citizen aren’t paying Eli the big bucks to spread his shilling around town.

Thanks to the ubiquity of cell phones, you can argue that wearing watches in general is little more than an affectation. That would be true here, but Olivia has said Eli’s still not old enough yet for a cell phone but still needs to know when to check in.

“Mister Coach Coughlin, my mom’s gonna be calling me in (checks $79 Citizen watch) eight minutes. May I be excused?”
