I asked Cam Newton to teach me how to dab and this was his response.
In the first 15 minutes at the official after-party of the 2016 ESPYS, I shook Richard Sherman’s hand, met former Lakers’ player/coach Byron Scott and told him he got a raw deal after his recent firing, and got a selfie with former Detroit Pistons “bad boy” John Salley.
As part of the launch for two new spots for the new “Smell ‘Em Who’s Boss” campaign (and two new Old Spice Guys: Swagger Guy and Desperado Guy), Old Spice set me up with full access to the ESPYS and after party.
Sports are meant to measure the physical fitness and skill of the players. That was their original purpose, and that should be their purpose today. But the widespread use of performance enhancers has made the competition unfair. Athletes training properly can lose to people who achieved their fitness through injecting or ingesting various drugs. Which is much like when you find the best online casinos in Canada and go for the jackpot, knowing the games are rigged – an uphill fight with a superior enemy.
When your non-athletically inclined friends and family come over for the big game, they’ll either cheer for your team or just choose the side with the prettiest uniforms. As it turns out, that’s actually not a bad strategy. Recent scientific research suggests colors like red, orange and blue are closely linked to success and multiple tournament championships. Psychology tells us that colors can significantly affect our moods and behavior, and given the mental component of excellent athletic performance, it makes sense the color of a uniform might affect an athlete’s performance on the field.
