During a half-time interview with ESPN at the LAFC versus L.A. Galaxy game on Saturday, July 18, Ferrell said that whenever his team needs to score a goal, he pulls out the helmet that his character famously wore in the movie.
“As long as I wear this helmet, we’re gonna be fine,” he insisted.
While it might seem like a strange tactic, believe it or not, it appears to actually work.
LAFC, who are the defending regular-season champions, beat their opposition by a score of 6-2.
Ferrell also opened up about how he’s been spending his time in lockdown, revealing that he’s been working on his core, reading, taking long walks and soul-searching.
