I'd usually suspect Red Bull,  but their logo would be a lot more prominent if it was them!

Oh no you said sports didn't you....
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
