If You Can't Join 'Em, Beat 'Em

I know professional athletes like to make money. Sometimes their multi-million dollar contracts aren't enough and they find themselves signing contracts with major companies to help consumers associate their favorite all-stars with those products. Venus Williams, Alex Rodriguez, and Tiger Woods make millions upon millions of dollars from endorsing American Express, General Motors, and Nike respectively. I guess when you're a professional athlete and you want to endorse something, but no existing company wants your face, you just have to take matters into your own hands.

Travis Hafner has his own candy bar. The Pronk Bars were created by Malley's Chocolates of Cleveland and include Hafner's face right on the wrapper. If the bar is as good as Hafner was the day the candy bar came out (4-4 with 2 HR's) then I'll take two dozen.

Don't like candy? Well, perhaps Chacin Cologne is for you. The Blue Jays' starter has recently created his own fragrance. The Blue Jays' homepage has a photo gallery showing all the steps necessary to creating the fragrance. Let's hope it smells a little bit better than Chacin does after coming off the mound.
