Sunday is the BIG GAME. There are snacks to prepare, team gear to locate or buy, refreshments to sort out, and TV ads to research (get the buzz on which ones everyone is likely to be tweeting opinions about).
And you’ve got to get your special sleepwear ready to properly rest the night before to be in shape to watch and party. Scoring a good night’s sleep in your high-tech jammies after the event will also help get you to work the next morning, especially if the contest goes into overtime.
Many are excited about the match-up of the two quarterbacks. Were you aware that Tom Brady has an off-the-field advantage that might influence the outcome of Super Bowl LI? Under Armor has introduced “Athlete Recovery Sleep Wear” that is “inspired by TB12”. The giant sports gear
company ads indicate the apparel is “engineered with TB12 recovery technology”. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, number 12, has helped UA “create the world’s most advanced sleep system that actually rebuilds your body while you rest.” The secret sauce of this sleepwear is the inside pattern which “leverages the power of Far Infrared.”
What’s FAR INFRARED? The site provides a link to an independent research study article that explains Far Infrared (FIR) in detail. UA says “The soft bioceramic print on the inside of the garment absorbs the body’s natural heat and reflects Far Infrared back to the skin. This helps your body recover faster, promotes better sleep, reduces inflammation, and regulates cell metabolism.” The authors are from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, both in Boston MA. Coincidence?
There are sleep garments available to purchase for men and women. Hmmm. I think I want to test these new sleep clothes. The power of advertising.
Enjoy the fun of Super Bowl Sunday.
RUN AND SLEEP HAPPY!
