Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This is Hines Ward, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as he disembarks in Arlington, Texas for this Sunday's Super Bowl.

We'll take the luggage, though.
