The secret of a good selfie, according to selfie enthusiast Ted Leonsis

Ted Leonsis, by my count, has posted approximately 26 selfies on his Twitter account in calendar year 2016. That’s an average of well over half-a-selfie per day, a healthy output that likely would put Leonsis atop the leaderboard of U.S. Sports Team Ownership Selfies, if not the international list.
