Skateboard Shoes, Sneaker Culture, and a Mob with Machetes

Cosigns don’t sell shoes anymore; shoot, Kylie Jenner can’t even make Pumas look cool in 2017. It takes a village to bring your clout up, something Nike Skateboarding (SB) can attest to. I don’t mean Nike as a whole, they’re doing fine. Nike SB, born in 2002, was Nike’s attempt to breach the skater culture...

The ESPN Box Score merely says, “0:01, 109-111, Kevin Durant makes 12-foot two point shot.” Your eyes see a lanky swingman taking a pull-up fade-away jumper over 3 defenders with menacing ease. Just like that, the Oklahoma City Thunder have beaten the Atlanta Hawks and won their eighth straight game. The reason watching Kevin Durant…

Although I call myself the greatest Jeremy Lin fan in the world, I regret to say that I did not take the hour and a half trip to see his documentary, Linsanity, when it debuted in October 4, 2013. My pre-ordered copy of the movie, however, arrived during the weekend so I finally had the…

I made it through watching almost the full first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl this year, which is an improvement upon last year’s viewing. I made a point to give the new format of the game a chance and committed myself to paying attention to the so-called “improvements” the league claimed it had made….

I don’t get it. I just don’t freakin’ get it. I understand why footballers take what they can get in terms of career advancement, and I understand that a footballer only has so many good years in his legs, but, for the life of me, I just cannot understand why a slightly underrated winger would…

The Conference Championships are over and now only two teams are left standing: The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.
