I'm On-and-Off Vacationing for the next few weeks, alternately chopping down trees and working on ad copy and weed-whacking my new jungle and pruning and tidying up databases, so my life's feeling a touch disparate at the moment.
So, in honor of finding myself doing two radically different things at nearly the same time, here's a video of a professional football player who's also a pretty good opera singer. Talk about cognitive (and vocational) dissonance.
Yes, this video is a essentially a GMC ad, sort of like the site hosting it is essentially a PR vehicle for professional athletes. And yes, he's a kicker, so some folks won't consider him an actual professional football player. But it's darn impressive, all the same.
Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is a Pro Bowler. He’s a Super Bowl champion. And he’s … an opera singer. In this Game Break, Justin shows us that the most exhausting thing for him isn’t practice days on the field — it’s hitting the right note off it.
