Athletes need to stay away from Campbell Soup. I offer you the record:
Figure Skater Nancy Kerrigan carries the Campbell Soup banner. She is assaulted by a lackey of Tonya Harding and gets ripped off for the gold medal at the Olympics.
Reggie White of the Green Bay Packers stars in the first “Me and My Mom” commercials for Campbell’s. He becomes embroiled in controversy over remarks given to the Wisconsin legislature, loses the soup deals, and dies young.
Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles replaces White in the “Me and My Mom” series. He has a terrible performance in the Super Bowl, gets cancer in the form of Terrell Owens, and ends up on the sidelines with injuries.
I’ve heard Jerome Bettis was shooting one with his mom in Detroit . . .
