USA gymnast Danell Leyva’s towel has a life of its own

Danell Leyva's Towel

USA Today has the story on USA gymnast Danell Leyva’s towel, which has a cult following and might actually become famous than the athlete himself. @leyvastowel already has over 10,000 followers on Twitter. From the USA Today story:

“One aunt went to go buy a towel, and the other one went to her house to get a towel for me because I wanted something to wipe my sweat off,” he explained. “And they both came back with the exact same towel. I said, ‘OK, this is a coincidence. I’m going to keep these two as my lucky towels.’

“One of them ripped a couple of months later, so I just had the one. I’ve had it since 2007. It hasn’t left my side since.”

Still, if I think I’m going to befriend a cult-hero towel, I’d rather go with this one:
