Athletes go undercover all the time to do awesome things. If you don’t remember, around the time of the MLB All-Star Game, second-year stud pitcher Matt Harvey of the New York Mets took to the streets to ask people what they think about, well, who else but himself. It was awesome to see the young star pitcher walk through the streets of New York — the city he actually plays in — to ask fans what they thought about Matt Harvey.
It’s always great to see the fans’ reaction to the questions and, on occasion, there is a person who recognizes the athlete. However, most of the time, the players go unrecognized and that’s when the most humorous moments happen.
Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan of the Washington Redskins went undercover recently at a sporting goods store to attempt to sell his own jersey and talk to some fans about the Redskins.
Check out the awesome video here:
When people were telling him that he looked to big to be working as an employee at a sporting good store instead of playing it, it was somewhat obvious that he was figured out.
He kept a straight face the entire time and the third-year player and Pro Bowl linebacker was relatively successful as a salesman. It seems like he has a pretty good sense of humor especially when he approached a guy who wanted to buy a Robert Griffin III jersey and he tried to sway him into buy a cool Kerrigan one.
This has to be one of the best athlete undercover videos out there. If you don’t know what Kerrigan looks like by now, you will after the video.
