Back when Barry Sanders was with the Detroit Lions, he was a ghost away from the field. You never saw the guy.
Now that he has been retired for 15 years, he’s everywhere. Commercials. ESPN shows. Soccer songs.
Yes, soccer songs.
Sanders delivers three words — “I believe that” — in his one second of face time in ESPN’s new “I Believe” commercial for the U.S. team at the World Cup.
Also featured in the spot are Kevin Costner, Ice Cube, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Hamm, Jimmy Kimmel and Cam Newton, among others.
The U.S. arrived in Brazil on Monday and plays its first game of the World Cup next Monday, against Ghana.
