Trevor Lawrence showed up for his postgame press conference like a champ after Clemson got smoked by Ohio State 49-28 in the Sugar Bowl Friday night. The future top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft had one of his worst collegiate games during the College Football Playoff Semifinal, he didn't deserve to get insulted during the postgame presser. But that's exactly what happened.

The press conference was held remotely via video conference -- as most have been this year -- and someone on the call left herself unmuted as Lawrence was in the middle of answering a question. Believing she was silenced, she blurted out, "Poor Trevor needs to shave his stache."

Lawrence handled it as well he as possibly could, pausing, grinning, half-laughing and saying, "Um, thank you." He was far more professional than whoever left themselves unmuted.

Here's the video:

Guys, we're almost a year into working remotely, who is still leaving their mic open? If this was April, I'd understand, but the calendar has changed and people still aren't paying attention to their mute buttons.

Lawrence and his Clemson Tigers were completely outclassed Friday night. He wound up completing 33 of 48 passes for 400 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, but those numbers are deceiving. He was sacked twice, hit a ton and fumbled three times, losing one. He was under constant duress and the Tigers couldn't hit any big plays down the field.

Assuming Lawrence declares for the draft, it will be a disappointing way for him to end his college career. The fact that he had an insult lobbed his way during the postgame presser just makes it worse.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
