Why has it taken so long for Calvin to make a Monday Morning Motivation appearance, you might ask? Well, for starters, I wasn’t prepared to share him with the rest of the world. And secondly, I wanted to wait for the right time to do so.
So when Johnson signed a NFL record 8-year, $132 million contract last week, I figured now was as good a time as any to share all that Mr. Johnson has to offer. And I assure you, it extends far beyond the game of football.
Ladies and gentleman, Mr. Calvin Megatron Johnson … (Please hold your applause till the end of the show)
Oh did I mention he also dresses like a GQ model?
Don’t worry, there is actually a video that goes with the photo above. But, let’s be honest, Calvin Johnson in his boxers cannot be understated. So it warrants a video AND a screenshot of said video.
Oh yeah, he also has a ridiculously awesome smile …
Johnson’s 6 foot 5, 235-pound body also doesn’t look too shabby in a football uniform.
Johnson is highly regarded as the best wide receiver in the NFL — and one of the most decent men in football. Detroit Lions head coach said it best last week during Johnson’s press conference for his new contract: “For as good a teammate Calvin Johnson is. He’s a better teammate, and a better person.” Now, if that doesn’t make you love him that much more, then I don’t know what will.
Oh wait, yes I do. The videos below.
Full disclosure … I will not be responsible for how many times you watch this and how much work you don’t get done as a result.
Tell me you’re not thinking about buying an Acura now?
Oh and as it turns out, he’s also pretty damn good at football:
