Shaun Phillips Takes Ice Cream Sandwich Day to a New Level

Today is National Ice Cream sandwich day, and we couldn’t think of a better excuse to indulge. To kick off these 24 hours of ice cream appreciation, we turn to sbe friend and Tennessee Titans player Shaun Phillips. On a sweltering LA day last month, Phillips surprised XIV Sessions party-goers when he pulled up in his personalized truck of treats. The fun-loving football star dished out free popsicles and ice cream sandwiches to the huge crowd that was waiting in line, melting in the sun. Needless to say, the mood dramatically shifted and the linebacker officially saved the day. It was not only Phillips’ homage to ice cream, but also his way of giving back to the people of XIV and LA for an amazing summer before he heads back East for football season. So to celebrate this national day, we couldn’t think of a sweeter gesture than gifting a friend or stranger a delicious ice cream sandwich—à la Phillips—with satisfaction guaranteed.
