An ongoing series of why Julian Tavarez is an awesome dude.
Julian Tavarez was showing a few of us his right middle finger, which has a popped blister near the tip. He said that he's had it for his last couple of starts but has successfully treated it in his own unique manner: 1). Pop it, 2). Repeatedly swab it with rubbing alcohol, 3). Crush aspirins, mix it with Red Bull energy drink and rub it on the popped blister.
Tavarez said that he has successfully used that approach for years on his blisters. [source]
Where do I even start? This man is insane. I love him.
