I had always wondered what it was too but I was always kind of embarassed to ask. Then I was watching the Rolex and the anouncer said it was grease. Just goes to show that when you think you have a dumb question a lot of other people are probably wondering too.

Thank you so much! I never paid much attention but assumed it was sweat
