Like most of you, we are serious sports fans over here and have been struggling with not having that next sporting event to look forward to on live TV these days.
It's kind of our "happy place" to go to mentally to check out of our own realities or stresses and root on our favorite team or athlete in that game, that race, that match or tournament. Missing the happy times spent rooting on our crew in these live sports events led us to seeking out anything fun to watch live, and found that the only thing being blasted on every live station, aka "the news" seems to be about COVID-19 and how there are more cases and more deaths.
So, we decided to create a motivating, funny, inspiring and happy place for you to spend some time consuming online media on the new melin YouTube channel. To kick off the "Whatcha Up To" series, there is no one in our crew that makes more smiles happen than the legend himself Daniel Ricciardo.
On this episode of Whatcha Up To?, melin's Co-Founder and President Brian McDonell sat down with melin Family and Formula 1 Driver, Daniel Ricciardo to see what he's been up to during his time of social distancing. Check it below;
