The recent endorsement deals signed by Alex Ovechkin with Gillette and Tom Brady with UGGs are truly bizarre, but they are far from the most ridiculous athlete ads of all time.We get it when athletes shill for shoe companies or car dealerships, but why would anyone hire these manly men to sell Snuggies?
