Audi + FC Bayern host pick up soccer match in Brooklyn

I was honored to be invited to play in Audi + Bayern Munich’s pick up soccer match last night in Brooklyn, NY. Two teams of influencers faced off against each other with two Bayern legends on each team. Markus Babbel and Paul Breitner were on my team, and Paulo Sergio and Giovane Élber were on the red team.

Influencers included Kazeem Famuyide (theStashed), Sian Pierre (Swagger), Julian Patterson and Donnie Kwak (Complex Media). Check out some photos of the event courtesy of the good folks at Getty Images.

Just over two years ago, we teamed up with internet football legend, Joltter, to create the very first #myLBFlife video. The video has over 100k views now and has inspired a few footballers to make videos of their own.

Here are some of our favorites, including the original.

If you go on twitter and search for “grind mode” or “rise and grind” you’ll find thousands of tweets boasting about a life filled with work. It’s admirable to work hard, and lord knows we do tons of that around these parts, but sometimes you just have to leave everything, call up a few good friends and drive down to the beach. It’s even better when one of those friends is a fantastic photographer. Enjoy.

LAUNCH party recap

Last Friday we launched our American Fútbol and World Cup Winners collections at Philly Phaithful in Northern Liberties. I could go on and on about how awesome the night was, but I’ll just leave these photos here and hope that they give just a small glimpse into what was, in short, an epic evening.
