Old Spice and Tough Mudder want you to go crazy in Vegas

LegendaryTeamsInstagram (2)

I ran a Tough Mudder this year and it was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. Except for that one time I was married. The Mudder was legitimately the most challenging physical experience I’ve ever had.

But for as challenging an event as a Tough Mudder is, don’t be afraid that you can’t compete if you don’t have rippling six-pack abs. A Tough Mudder is as much of a celebration of camaraderie and meeting new people as it is a physical test, and everyone is there to have each other’s back and finish the course. Think of it as a team of friends that you have at the course that you just haven’t met yet. Like that one time you met a “woman” on Craigslist at that place you had never been and will never go back to again.

Speaking of friends, now Old Spice wants you and the friends that you already have to try it as a group and prove you are the best.

Do you have a #LegendaryTeam akin to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, 1996 Chicago Bulls or the 1927 New York Yankees?

Of Tough Mudders and Cincinnati Chili: An Old Spice #Smellegendary Expedition

When the guy on the tiny Delta plane that I was sharing a seat with told me about “Cincinnati chili,” all I could think about was the notorious “Cleveland Steamer.”

I mean, how was I to know any different?

Everything I knew about Cincinnati had been mainlined into my body via two sources: “WKRP in Cincinnati” and my favorite NFL head coach of all-time, former Bengals boss Sam Wyche. And this guy looked nothing like Johnny Fever. Or Wyche.

The man’s hands were strong – too strong. And when the flight attendant stopped in our row and examined a lanyard around his neck, he nodded at her — a slow, pronounced nod that was accompanied by the universal “shhhhh” hand signal of an index finger placed tenderly over his lips while making intense eye contact with the stewardess — it became clear he was some kind of TSA officer.

Needless to say, I crossed my legs and looked the other way. But all this guy wanted to talk about was chili.

“Yeah, so you can have a two-way Cincinnati chili, a three-way, heck, even a four-way.”

Old Spice is known for weirdness, and on the tarmac in Detroit en route to the “Queen City,” the weirdness was already cranked up to one billion percent. Old Spice actually came into existence due to a four-way of sorts.

Bullz-Eye tackles Tough Mudder Lake Tahoe Degree DO:MORE Style!

Degree Men DO-MORE CORPS

There is no feeling on earth like sliding into the $125 robe in your room at the Ritz Carlton after spending six hours on the most difficult obstacle course in the world. Wait a minute, did someone say “Carlton”?  I thought they did.

The+Robe

This robe is the kind of robe Carlton would’ve rocked when he was on “Silver Spoons” with Ricky Schroeder. God, how I yearned to ride on that sweet in-house train, even just to go get the mail. Imagine me and the robe and the train. We’d run a train on the train; me, Carlton, the robe, Ricky… good times.

Sure, I thought about stealing the robe. Who wouldn’t? But the minute I stepped foot off the premises, the magic would’ve been gone, like when a young Moonlight Graham steps over the foul line in “Field of Dreams” to be irrevocable transformed into Doc, the kindly doctor who removes a piece of hot dog from Kevin Costner’s daughter’s airway to save her life.

Anyway, I left the robe, and about a pound of ball skin, on the mountain that day, and lived to tell the tale.

Keeping it REAL klassy on the mountain...

Keeping it REAL klassy on the mountain…

But you know what I didn’t leave on the mountain that day, friends? Sweat, or a stench of any kind. That’s because Degree had my back, not unlike the way Chuck Norris had Jonathan Brandis’ back in the movie “Sidekicks.”

Degree allows you to DO: MORE with three levels of protection.
