Hines Ward’s REFUEL web series, BECOME ONE, highlights the former football star’s training efforts as he prepares to compete in the 2013 IRONMAN® World Championship triathlon in Hawaii this October. in our Hines Ward interview that we posted a few weeks back, Ward talked about BECOME ONE and the training that goes into triathlon prep. The first episode of the BECOME ONE documentary web series can be seen at gotchocolatemilk.com.
Being a Steelers fan and a big supporter of anything involving chocolate milk, I definitely wanted to follow along as Hines makes the transformation from retired football menace to endurance athlete extraordinaire. Here’s a look at the second episode of the 10-part BECOME ONE series:
This past weekend , Hines competed in the St. Anthony’s Triathlon in Florida. Ward must’ve been happy that the swim portion was cut short due to choppy waters. He completed the triathlon in 2 hours, 26 minutes and 37 seconds. His splits were 15:53 for the swim, 1:33:27 for the 40-kilometer (24.9 mile) bike ride, and 51:27 for the 10-kilometer (6.3 mile) run
To help promote Ward’s journey and the BECOME ONE series, we’ve partnered up with REFUEL | got chocolate milk? to provide a sweet giveaway for one lucky reader. The winner of this giveaway will receive three pieces of REFUEL branded Nike gear: two pro-combat dri-fit black t-shirts and one white mesh cap. We’ll even throw in an autographed football from Hines himself.

People love energy products. Coffee, teas, sodas, energy drinks, shots of mystery energy liquid – you name it. If it puts pep in your step, people are going to try it. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, uncontrollable yawning isn’t an option. Whether it’s work, play, family, friends, sports, day life, nightlife, whatever you do to occupy your time, you usually want to be alert when you’re doing it. That’s why people look for assistance in the energy department. It’s easy to understand. We’ve all been there.
Well now there’s a new product on the market that delivers energy in a new and innovative way. AeroShot Energy is forging a whole new category in energy consumption. AeroShot launched this year and is currently expanding its reach in the Northeast. The product will be available nationwide by 2013.
So what is an AeroShot? It’s a lipstick-sized device that delivers an air-based boost of energy – 100mg of caffeine plus B vitamins. The dry-powder particles that the AeroShot delivers are small enough to travel through the air but not large enough to get into the lungs. It’s a zero calorie, liquid-free delivery system that dissolves on your tongue and starts working right away.
It’s basically high-tech, weaponized caffeine. The delivery technology was devised by Dr. David Edwards, a biomedical engineer and Harvard professor. Dr. Edwards wanted to productize this new technology, which can have far reaching applications in the consumption of food, nutrients and medication.
100mg of caffeine is the equivalent of one large cup of coffee, but the delivery system means that the caffeine can be absorbed in your tongue faster than any liquid. Pure caffeine tastes bitter. Red Bull smells toxic. 5-Hour Energy shots taste like medicine. AeroShot uses natural ingredients to produce three distinct flavors: Raspberry (which is sweet), Lime (which is tart) and Green Apple (which is sweet-tart). Each AeroShot contains caffeine, B vitamins, these natural flavors, and that’s it. No hidden ingredients, questionable stuff or nasty masking agents. Just insta-energy that can be absorbed immediately.
We’re partnering up with AeroShot to giveaway a gift pack to one lucky reader. To enter, just send us an email below telling us why you need more energy. We’ll pick a winner at random next Monday.
Halo 4 hits stores on November 6 and the most anticipated video game release in a long time is getting a push from a ton of different channels, from Mountain Dew to Doritos and more. GameStop is getting in on the fun, too.
From now until November 6, gamers can visit Halo4Vote.com, pre-order Halo 4 and vote each for one of three bonus exclusives, every day until the release. The first bonus exclusive has already been decided by voters. It’s the Artic Battle Rifle Weapon Skin. Voting for the second bonus is going on right now. From now until October 22, you can vote for War Games haven Premium Theme or the Yellow Warrior Avatar Armor. The options for the third bonus will be announced on October 22.
Halo 4 is set in the aftermath of Halo 3, where we follow Master Chief as he “returns to confront his own destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.” Sounds pretty heavy, huh?
Halo 4 is the first Halo release to not be developed by Bungie Studios. For the fourth installment, Microsoft-owned 343 industries has taken the charge. With such a strong base of loyal Halo fans, the pressure is on to deliver a product that’s true to the original trilogy, but can stand alone in its own right. The anticipation is mounting.
To promote the release of the game and the bonus exclusives available at Halo4Vote.com, we are partnering up with GameStop to giveaway a prize package that includes a copy of Halo 4 and a 250GB Xbox 360 console. To enter this giveaway, follow MANjr on Twitter and send us an email below telling us which exclusive you will be voting for. We’re running this giveaway for two weeks, so you got time to check out the exclusives and enter to win this sweet Halo package. We’ll pick a winner at random on Monday, October 29.
The title of this post is a mouthful, but that’s what you can expect when you mack a big bite of Campbell’s Chunky Soup. Campbell’s has introduced three new flavors that can tackle any man-sized hunger. Flavors like Chipotle Chicken and Corn Chowder, Kickin’ Buffalo-Style Chicken and Jammin’ Jerk Chicken with Rice & Beans pack way more of an appetite-satisfying gut-punch than a bowl of chicken noodle or tomato soup. This stuff is a three-minute meal in can. They’re pull-top too, so you don’t even need a can opener. You can break off the top, grab a bowl and start the microwave before the game gets back from a TV timeout.
Campbell’s is kicking off a new “Mama’s Boy” campaign to start the NFL season. Football fans will be familiar with the Campbell’s Mama’s Boy campaign, which was first introduced in 1997. But you won’t see Mama McNabb in these spots. The new face of the campaign is Giants wide receiver and Salsa dancing enthusiast Victor Cruz. Here’s the first TV spot:
To help promote the launch of the new Chunky Soup varieties and the return of the Campbell’s Chunky Soup Mama’s Boy campaign, we’re giving away a $100 gift card to NFLShop.com. That’s right, you can score $100 to put towards a jersey, some t-shirts, a team track jacket (my preference), caps, pajamas and all kinds of other gear. The stuff on NFLShop.com isn’t cheap, so if you want to support your team and save some cash, send us an email below and tell us why you’re proud to be a mama’s boy. We’ll pick a winner next Thursday, September 20.

Top Gear is awesome. You know this already. It’s like the perfect balance of supercar porn, beautiful camera work, engaging personalities and the right amount of humor and celebrity banter. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have been doing Top Gear since the 2002 relaunch of the BBC television series (when James May replaced previous presenter Jason Dawe). The original version of Top Gear began in 1977 as a local series on BBC Birmingham. It ended up on BBC2 and until 2001. Clarkson has been at the helm of Top Gear, which one of the most popular television programs in Britain, since 1988.
The best thing about Top Gear is that the co-presenters have such great, genuine chemistry. Clarkson is witty, pompous, self-important and clever. He treads that fine line between arrogant snob and approachable everyman. Not an easy task, this.
Richard Hammond, that impish, big-smiled comic foil, fully embraces his role as a loveable hamster. He feels approachable, but still spends an awful lot of time whitening his teeth. In 2006, Hammond survived a serious car crash when the Vampire dragster he was driving crashed while traveling at 288 MPH. He made a full recovery and returned to his Top Gear hosting duties.
James May is the black sheep of the bunch. He’s always bringing up the rear in racing challenges. His car is always first one to break down. May has appeared in different programs about space travel, science fiction, toys and wine. He balances the wonder of a child with a sharp tongue and he carries an affable underdog vibe with him at all times.
And then there’s the Stig. Some say he’s a the mystery driver who sets lap times, trains all the Stars in the Reasonably Priced Cars and has cousins all over the world. But no one knows for certain who the Stig really is. We just know that he listens to some really weird stuff when driving around the track at top speed.
Season 17 kicks off with a 50th birthday bash for the Jaguar E-Type, hosted by Jeremy Clarkson. Richard Hammond heads to South Africa to test out a Hummer on steroids and James May battles Amy Williams in Mini Rally Car race. Other highlights of the season include: a trip to Italy to test high performance hatchbacks; a head-to-head battle between the McLaren MP4-12C and the Ferrari 458 Italia; a comparison of the Jaguar XKR-S and the Nissan GT-R; demolition of derelict houses; a seaside evaluation of two electric cars (the Nissan Leaf and the Peugeot iOn); and celebrity laps from Alice Cooper, Ross Noble and Sebastian Vettel.
The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament kicks off tomorrow. If you’re like most people, you can’t just sit and enjoy all the games on your couch for the next three weeks. You still got a job. You still got stuff to do. But you’re not going to let a little thing like work stop you from enjoying March Madness, right? Of course not. You’re going to find a way to get work stuff done while multi-tasking all covert-like.
Luckily, we’re teaming up with Wheat Thins to hook up two lucky readers with Wheat Thins March Madness Covert Fans Survival Kits. What’s in these kits? Here’s what you’ll get:
- Mini basketball Wheat Thins backboard and basketball set
- Headset (for listening to the game and pretending to be on a conference call)
- Wheat Thins branded koozie
- 1 box of Original Wheat Thins Whole Grain
- 1 box of Smoky BBQ flavored Wheat Thins
- 1 Wheat Thins branded stressball
To enter the giveaway, just follow us on Twitter (@MANjrcom) and send us an email below. We’ll pick two winners at random by the end of the week.
