Just in time for Super Bowl week, Sports Illustrated shares some pretty wild news about top-line pro and college football players using some dubious products with hopes of helping their on-field performance. Care to spritz a little deer antler mist under your tongue anyone? You can read the full report here. Check out the video in the story, as an SI reporter tests out the validity of stickers that supposedly deflect energy-draining cellphone waves from the football players who wear them.

I swear by my antler mist. But you gotta make your own—the store-bought stuff just doesn't compare.

If you have a hard time getting your hands on real antler, I've found that mouse teeth make a decent substitute.

But the big question is, do you have any big-time athletes who can endorse this stuff? The regular antler mist dudes give it to the stars to use for free, but can't coax a testimonial out of them.
