The guy who has been fined repeatedly by the NFL for not talking is now reaping the benefits. He stars in two new ads for Skittles (duh) and Progressive, both released on Superbowl Media Day, of all days, which is pretty much the opposite of Christmas to Marshawn Lynch.
While there are some gems in these ads, this is really an eff-you to the NFL. He must either really despise the NFL, or just really loves Skittles (he probably got paid in Skittles?). At least he is paying back the fines he racked up this year.
But seriously, like why even play in the NFL? I understand the NFL doesn’t exactly have its s*** together, but it’s still part of your job. If you don’t like it, get a new one. Hopefully he retires after a whoopin’ by the Pats and then the NFL won’t have to deal with him anymore.
And speaking of guys who don’t enjoy talking to the media, this could be the best photo of all time.
BOSTON, MA – The National Hockey League announced today, January 24, that the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® will feature the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, on January 1, 2016. When these long-time rivals meet, Boston will become the first NHL team to host the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® for a second time, after defeating the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime at the 2010 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® at Fenway Park. It will mark the first time the Canadiens will play in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, and just the second time a Canadian-based NHL team will play in the game, following Toronto’s appearance in 2014.
Additional information relating to the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, including ticketing information, will be released at a future date.
This was officially announced today by NHL commissioner Gary Bettman during the 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus.
