Stephen Curry and John Wall had a heated Twitter exchange over the weekend, leading to a showdown on Saturday, February 14th, during NBA All-Star Practice where Curry and Wall will go shot-for-shot in the Degree Battle of the Game Changers.
We spoke to Steph about his career, how to shoot 90% from the free throw line and how to impress babes by slathering your entire body in Degree DrySpray.
Fans will help play a role in determining who is crowned the Ultimate Game Changer by voting on one of the shots the two All-Stars will attempt in the battle.
While Curry and Wall are sinking shots on the court, they’ll be protected by the new game changing Degree Dry Spray Antiperspirant, the new way to get superior protection. It goes on instantly dry for a cleaner feel without visible residue.
Using the Degree signature MOTIONSENSE Technology, Dry Spray provides the superior 48-hour odor and wetness protection that these competitors will need throughout NBA All-Star.
Rochester, New York is now the most hyped hometown in America thanks to Pepsi and stud wide receiver Sammy Watkins, a lifelong Bills fan.
This past Sunday, over 7,500 fans celebrated Rochester’s win in the Pepsi contest with their own ultimate Super Bowl halftime experience headlined by singing/songwriting duo Nico & Vinz, and appearances by new head coach Rex Ryan and Watkins.
Watkins was the NFL Rookie of the Week three times during the 2014 season and was the NFL Rookie of the Month for October. He also set single-season franchise rookie records with 65 receptions and 982 receiving yards, while scoring six touchdowns.
Talk about the work you did with Pepsi.
I worked with Pepsi on the “Hyped for Halftime” contest, which was a contest to find the best fans in the NFL. Rochester, NY did a great job as fans and I’m happy to say we won. They did it! They’ve been leading us for 30 to 40 years, helping us on and off the field, so this is a great treat for them.
One word to describe Bills fans is “crazy.” When we’re hitting at all points on offense and defense, the stadium gets crazy. Sometimes, we have to quiet them down so we can get the play call in. Pepsi was looking for the best fans and this proves we’ve got the best fans. And, Rochester got their own Pepsi Halftime Show, just like the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show with Katy Perry.
I read you were a Buffalo Bills fan as a kid, so you can really connect with the people. What’s it like to be a fan and grow up and join the Bills?
Yes, I was. They were my favorite team to watch when I was younger. To be here playing for the Bills? Man, it’s great! It shows you how blessed I am. I’m in a great situation with the team I love. I try to go out every week and put my best on the field, fight to get the win at the end of the day. That’s what I think it’s all about at the end of the day as a member of the Bills: fighting with the guys next to you and coming out with a win.
The NFL gets a classic matchup for the Super Bowl after the Green Bay Packers completed one of the most incredible choke jobs in NFL history. New England won the later game, so either the Packers or the Seahawks would have set up a great Super Bowl pairing, but it’s the Seahawks who prevailed for the chance to win back-to-back Super Bowls against a team looking to cement their dynasty status.
Red Bull Frozen Rush is the world’s only off-road truck race in the snow. It’s a loud, high-intensity throwdown that takes place on the slopes of Sunday River, Maine every January. The head-to-head race features 900-horsepower trucks throttling up and down the ski slopes conquering massive jumps, big berms, tight gates and steep hills.
It’s far from the dirt, rocks, sand and gravel of the traditional off-road world. Eight of the best off-road racers battle in the first-ever race on a snow-covered ski resort.
Here’s a clip from last year:
In addition to the heavy horsepower, the driver roster is stacked with 10 of the top off-road truck drivers, including Motorsports Hall of Famer Ricky Johnson, TORC champion Johhny Greaves, former rookie of the year Bryce Menzies, freestyle motocross star Brian Deegan and more.
Red Bull Frozen Rush will webcast live at 12:30 pm ETtoday (Friday, January 9, 2015)via Red Bull TV player on RedBull.com/frozenrush.
