Sit up straight. Have a firm handshake. Look people in the eye when you talk to them.

We’ve all heard things like that for years. During media training sessions, the direction can be even more pointed: “Don’t say ‘you know’ as a crutch.” “Don’t speculate.” “Look at the person asking the question.” “Speak with confidence.”

Practice can make perfect, right?

Now, according to Sports Illustrated, the New York Jets have begun fining quarterback Mark Sanchez every time he exhibits poor body language in practice.

So – no shoulder shrugs. No finger-pointing. No head-hanging. Or it’ll cost you.

  1. What most impressed me about this was the backup QB is pretty much running it. Good to see Mark helping Mark!
