Amar’e Stoudemire is blogging. Basketball blog Posting and Toasting, has revealed two posts from Stoudemire’s soon-to-launch fashion/sports website. In one post, Stoudemire gives us a teaser image from the ad campaign for his new underwear line. He explains, “Yeah, you know, with this ad I wanted to convey how my line of underwears is so sexy that I can’t even show them in the ad. If you think about it, for the common man, not a lot of people will see your underwears on a regular basis so this ad is, like, keeping you guessing just like the people around you.” The command of language: masterful. Loving the juxtaposition of “convey” and “underwears.”(Racked)
