Apparently Russell Wilson Was 'Perceived Wrong' When He Said That 'Recovery Water' Heals Concussions
LBS- Russell Wilson took a lot of heat earlier this week for going overboard while endorsing a beverage brand. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback made the absurd implication that drinking Recovery Water was the reason he did not suffer a concussion in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.
On Friday, Wilson backtracked on his over-the-top sales pitch — sort of.
“I didn’t have a concussion,” he said, per Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. “I guess it was perceived wrong. I did not have a concussion. I was saying that I had been consistently drinking the water for a month and a half — five, seven times a day. And I was like, ‘Man, maybe this stuff is helping me out.'”
“I didn’t have a head injury, but what I was trying to say is I think it helped prevent it,” Wilson added. “I think your brain consists of like 75, 80 percent water, so I think that just being hydrated, drinking the recovery water really does help.”
BOOO!!! Look, I hate Russell Wilson for a lot of reasons. He's far too preachy for my liking, he's got a smoking hot girlfriend that he refuses to have sex with, and apparently he's not black enough. Let me clarify that last one. It has nothing to do with his skin color, fashion sense, or taste in music. Russell Wilson isn't black enough because he refuses to stand behind what he believes in. Such a white move to change your opinion based solely on public outcry. It's not a lie if you believe it Russ. You want to tell me that 'Recovery Water' healed your concussion then you may be an idiot, but at least you're an idiot with conviction. I dislike when spokespeople say outlandish things in order to promote their brand, but at least I respect it. I can't sit here and respect Russell Wilson for doing the 100 meter backstroke once he faces a little bit of backlash.
Russell Wilson basically pissed in our face and called it holy water, then turned around a week later and said "well, actually it was just urine, but it's still kind of good for your complexion". Oh really Russ? The specialty water you are promoting helps to keep you hydrated? I'll take a lifetime supply please. A drink that can make you less thirsty? How can I pass up this opportunity! Who even needs a water that promotes cognitive health when you can have a water that keeps your piss clear?
At least when Wilson was talking about 'Recovery Water' and it's ability to heal the sick and help the blind see it was result oriented. Russell had his brain scrambled then he took of sip of this and now his brain is no longer scrambled. Can't argue with that conclusive outcome. Now he's taken about 30 steps back and he's saying that this product just prevents concussions. Pshh, if all I was trying to do was prevent concussions then I would just avoid getting hit in the head really hard. I ordered 'Recovery Water' Russell, not 'Prevent Water'. I want the water that works miracles, not the water that inhibits the need for miracles. That's a drink that I didn't believe in, but I would probably buy just to see what all the hype was about, and wasn't that the whole point anyway?
