Tony Gonzalez is an NFL icon. A lock for the Hall of Fame when he retires, Gonzalez has the most receiving yards (14,268) and touchdowns (107) for a tight end in NFL history, and the second most receptions (1,242) all-time, trailing only 49ers legend Jerry Rice.
I sat down with the 17-year veteran about his partnership with Clear Men Scalp Therapy, “Marty Ball” and the evolution of the NFL. You can check out a transcription of the interview below, or just watch the embedded video of our discussion below.
Bullz-Eye: So Tony, what’s going on with you and Clear Men Scalp Therapy?
Tony Gonzalez: I teamed up with Clear Men Scalp Therapy because as you strive to be the perfect man, it starts with first impressions. And as a football player wearing a helmet all the time, we deal with flakes. They have flake free, dandruff free shampoo that really doesn’t dry your hair out and I love it. It smells great and I’m glad to be a part of it.
However you quantify NBA greatness, Elgin Baylor’s name will always enter the equation.

“No problem, how are you?”
“I am good, nice to see you.”
My first night in Los Angeles, I attended the BODY at ESPY’s Party which was a celebration of both the ESPY Awards the following evening, and also the release of the latest ESPN BODY issue. The atmosphere at LURE night club was extremely intimate, as the party took place outside on a gorgeous L.A. night. Hennessy, one of the event sponsors, flowed freely and I highly recommend their take on a Mojito; it was delicious.
Our introduction to Dr. Allan Peterkin happened a few months ago when we were lucky enough to interview the physician, author and professor and ask him several semi-serious questions about being a man with facial hair; the pitfalls, the perks, the women… ahhhh, the women.
“The Bearded Gentleman: The Style Guide to Shaving Face” piqued my interest in being a man again. Since the divorce, the flame had certainly flickered. I got my hands on a copy and the book is fantastic. It is the de facto quick reference guide on personal style in relation to facial hair ever created, and I am including “The Bible” in that generalization as well. Read more →
