Manly men use body wash
Elizabeth Holmes, WSJ, Nov 27, 2013, says the giant, hyper-masculine types in the NBA dote on their body products.
Amar'e Stoudemire (detached retina, like me), stocks up on body wash, oils, and creams, he says. Before games, he applies a stress relief smell.
They often post on their favorites on Twitter and Instagram. What, oh, what has happened to sports?
Of course, this is known to the cosmetic companies, who are paying the athletes tons to endorse their products.
They also get pimples--which one player attributed to touching a ball others had touched. Yup, kind of going to happen.
And, naturally, deodorant is a huge best seller.
You get the idea.
It's OK to smell good. Ax? You decide. Maybe Shea Souffle from Carol's Daughter instead?
