Football players are an uncommon breed. Where most of us would shy away from physical altercations, they run toward them. When physical exhaustion would send an average athlete to the sideline, they push on. While the majority of Americans take all the precautions they can to avoid bad breath, some football players seek it.
John Randle, who was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio this past weekend, was known throughout the course of his 14-season career as a tireless defensive player with a nose for taking down the opposing team's quarterback.
However, he was also known as an eccentric individual. For example, his teammates claim that he avoided brushing his teeth on game days because he thought having bad breath might give him a psychological advantage over his opponents, according to Yahoo Sports.
While football players may have something to gain - if only in their minds - from bad breath, chances are the rest of us are likely not in a position to benefit from a lack of oral hygiene. For those of you who are looking to get rid of halitosis - rather than court it - TheraBreath offers a line of products that may take care of the problem.
