Michael Strahan, Tony Gonzalez and Steve Smith Compete to Keep Their Grip for Charity
Yesterday, football legend Michael Strahan, New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith and Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez went head to head at Chelsea Piers in New York to battle it out for the highest score in the Vaseline MEN Keep Your Grip Challenge, an exciting new online football game that challenges the player to get downfield without losing his grip on the ball, while defenders try to tackle him from every angle.
After five rounds of intense game play, Tony Gonzalez came out on top as the winner, even overcoming game host and long-time Vaseline MEN partner Michael Strahan. With a high score of 74,600, Gonzalez beat Strahan at his own game, showing that he has what it takes to get downfield while holding onto the ball. In celebration of the friendly competition, Vaseline MEN made a $25,000 donation in Gonzalez’s name to Youth on the Move – a non-profit organization that supports national youth football programs.
“No other game requires a good grip as much as football, since you have to hold onto the ball to win – and you just can’t do that with greasy skin,” says Michael Strahan. “Vaseline MEN has really scored with this game, which highlights the lotion’s non-greasy formula, while giving guys a chance to do what they love to do – take on a challenge.”
Vaseline MEN, a line of hand and body lotions, created the game to highlight their non-greasy formulas. Men can take the Keep Your Grip Challenge by visiting KeepYourGripChallenge.com.
