Does Pokerstars normally sponsor non-poker-pros?
I was completely surprised to see Rafa Nadal on my PS client. I am a huge fan of his, as he is a total warrior on the tennis court. Fun to watch him play tennis.......and he just beat Novak (winning the French Open).
Here is the PS link:
Help Rafa Nadal Improve his Poker Game at PokerStars!
EDIT: I guess I am not alone in thinking this was interesting.
Couple of lines from a sports blog "This is weird: Rafael Nadal has joined PokerStars, the world's largest online poker site. ...... It's a natural move for PokerStars. Online poker was legalized in Spain on June 1. Getting one of the nation's biggest sports stars to endorse the product is a nice marketing coup. ....... I'm not trying to be the moral police. Online poker isn't wrong, PokerStars isn't evil and Rafael Nadal isn't a degenerate sellout for endorsing gambling. They just make for some strange bedfellows is all. "
