The USA is Fan-Fucking-Tastic

Women’s Gymnastics

Simone winning Gold

Simone winning Gold

Aly Raisman and Simone Biles are en fuego. I knew that Biles won gold in the all-around and Raisman got silver as I was watching last night which is another reason why watching replay sucks. After seeing Aly Raisman’s floor routine I thought to myself “how could anyone do better than that?? Then I saw Biles and was blown away. She is so powerful, gets so much air, and sticks every landing. I see why she’s the best gymnast in the world. First watch a clip of Raisman’s first pass for reference. Now here is Biles routine. And if you have a crush on Aly Raisman, here is further hotness from Aly (NSFW) in the ESPN Body Issue.

 

Michael Phelps

160809172558-michael-phelps-cupping-large-169Jaw dropping and awe inspiring. I know virtually nothing about swimming so I can’t tell if the competition is weak or he is that much better with regard to world times, but what he has done throughout his career might not be matched for a long time. 22 golds! He will win 23 tonight as he’s going off at -300. What an absolute monster in the pool. His parents are dolphins!

Olympic Golf

I wrote that the John Deere is such a snoozer because of these Olympics and it’s playing out that way. Draftkings has 47k entries to the Olympic golf tournament. The PGA championship had 83k to give you an idea of it’s relevance to the gambling community. I’d guess the John Deere has 3k.

It’s the early goings but you have Stenson and Rose chasing guys like Marcus Fraser and Thomas Pieters. The USA team is struggling with Kuchar leading the way in 11th currently, Bubba in the middle of the pack, and Reed and Fowler lagging behind. Fortunately there are no cuts.

 

American Dominance

The medal count looks like this:

Proud-to-be-an-american-flagObviously the Americans are dominating swimming and gymnastics. I have a hard time believing they’ll win in events like archery, ping pong, hand ball, and water polo. What it really shows though is the dedication to sports and the ability to train and fight through obstacles. People like Phelps, Ledecky, Biles, and Raisman are created by a devotion to being the best. They have god given abilities that are crafted through a lifetime of work. What you are watching is the result of talent and hard work and America is proving it knows how to create the best athletes on the planet. It’s incredible to watch the ass-kicking they are putting on the rest of the world.

Subway Rides Above

SbwyPhelpsAdThe list of world class athletes Subway hires is telling. They moved away from common man Jared losing weight by eating Subway, to being endorsed by the best of the best. Here’s a list of people who have done Subway ads: Michael Phelps, Pele, Megatron, RG3, Ryan Howard, Apollo Ohno, Nastia Lukin, Russell Westbrook, and Blake Griffin.

Why spend so much money to get these people to promote? The answer is simple, if Subway is good enough for these people, Subway is good enough for you. It doesn’t matter if they actually eat Subway or not, your brain is conditioned to associate Subway with Michael Phelps. Phelps is the greatest Olympian of all time. This association is powerful.

Holly Bleasdale'sDo you know what the biggest restaurant chain is? Subway. There are 41,000+ stores over 106 countries. Do you think their advertising campaign might have something to do with it?

I like to take advertising one step further though because any of these athletes can just say they eat Subway. I agree that using people who are “the best” at their sport is a great way to get points across. What they should actually endorse though is products they use. Michael Phelps should be spokesmen for whatever goggles, bathing suits, and training equipment he uses. When I purchase items for a sport and I know that these are worn by an Olympic athlete when he competes, I’m sold that they are good enough for me.

4401.2012-dufner-hpbnc-1I like watching golf and seeing what golf balls the pros are using. Duff daddy hits Pro V’s and I’ll continue playing Pro V’s because of this validation. Do you see Top-Flights being played by anybody? Would you think differently about the brand if pro’s played Top Flights?

The aforementioned point about golf balls is the most effective advertising the way I see it. If I can see a pro using equipment, I will buy it. Now when I watch an athlete eat a sandwich it doesn’t pull me as much but I can see how it may affect others. This is a lesson in advertising and how effective using well known celebrities is. It’s why celebrities are celebrities. They can have a major effect on the population. You think the producers of this dress paid Kendall Jenner to wear it?
