If the way the Bears are playing makes you sick, don't worry. Lovie Smith has you covered, as he's the star of NyQuil's latest NFL-themed commercials.
Smith has had to endure the extremes of Chicago weather while coaching, which will bring about a lack of health. With Chicago predicted to have the worst winter ever, it's good the man who stands stoic despite the wind, snow, rain and sleet will have a way to combat the sniffles.
He claims that he was a fan of NyQuil before ever being asked to star in an ad.
"It's a good brand that I use, No. 1," the coach told the Chicago Tribune. "It's not like it's hard to pitch something that I believe in. Plus I've seen some of the Drew Brees commercials and thought it would be fun. You know, I did have a little bit of time this offseason."
It's great that Smith has found the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, best-sleep-you-ever-got-with-a-cold medicine. Now, he can focus on fixing the Sunday sackless, befuddled, first-down-losing, most-yards-given-up-in-game-since-82 defense.
