ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Former Division I basketball player and all-pro tight end Tony Gonzalez is teaming up with CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ to share his tips on executing The Perfect Play during March Madness this year.
From picking a winning bracket to hosting the perfect Final Four® party, Gonzalez, with the help of CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™, has you covered. He helped the University of California-Berkeley reach the Sweet Sixteen® in the 1997 NCAA tournament, so he knows what it takes to win on the hardwood. Plus, with the Final Four in Atlanta this year, where Gonzalez has spent the last four pro football seasons, he can even help you throw the perfect Southern-inspired Finals party.
"The likelihood you pick a perfect bracket are 35 billion to one4 , but your odds for being the Perfect Man are a lot better with CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™," said Gonzalez. "We're helping guys execute a Perfect Play on the court, on the field or even a night on the town – it's about playing with confidence and to me that means 100% flake-free hair. Looking good means I got game."
Clear suggests other ways to have the perfect Final Four experience:
- The Perfect Bracket – According to 2012 research, men are proven to spend on average nearly 30 minutes longer on bracket selection than their female March Madness counterparts.1 Here is a helpful tip: when going with an 'underdog team,' go with teams that have a disadvantage of 10 points. 2 Gonzalez adds, "Do your research. If you want the perfect bracket, then you've got to put in the effort and study up on the teams, their strengths, weaknesses, and key stats."
- The Perfect Attire – While sweatshirts and college tee-shirts typically don't qualify as 'going out' apparel, March Madness is clearly the exception. Go all out or pick one key piece like a cool, flat-brimmed hat that flaunts your team's logo. Here's an interesting piece of March Madness (fashion) trivia: did you know that all of the last 8 NCAA basketball championship teams had the color blue in their uniform?3 Apparently looking good and playing well go hand in hand.
- The Perfect Finals Party – When it comes time for the finals, skip the madness at the bar and invite your fellow fans to watch the game at your place. Let the Final Four's Atlanta locale serve as party inspiration. Choose Southern food and drink crowd pleasers like BBQ, mac-and-cheese and sweet tea.
