If you want to make the big bucks as a professional athlete, your finances dont begin and end with a contract. Youve got to go out there and secure endorsement deals with leading brands. Often, these endorsements make perfect sense these being endorsement deals for sports wear, sports equipment, deodorant, and those sorts of things. However, that doesnt stop some athletes from pursuing endorsement deals that dont really align with sports in general. When this happens, sometimes the results are just downright wacky. So, lets take a look at 15 of the worst athlete endorsements of all time.
1. Ray Lewis Branded Snuggie
Oh, the Snuggie! How can anyone forget the Snuggie? Perhaps youve got one lying around the house. In truth, those who have one testify to the fact that theyre actually quite comfortable. That doesnt, of course, save you from looking like the biggest dork this side of MIT for wearing one. But, as dory as an off-the-shelf Snuggie is, one thats been branded by Ray Lewis is even dorkier. Just look at old Ray up there. Woof.
