adidas Wants You To Get Out and Vote

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!


We all know what today is. We all know how important today is; but just in case you forgot, adidas would like to remind you before it’s too late. What the Nike competitor has done is release a special edition election day shoe for Tracy McGrady and Kevin Garnett, complete with a message embracing change on the sides.

This is the third pair of special edition shoes adidas has made for their basketball focal point, Kevin Garnett. Unlike the other pairs; however, these won’t be made available to the public.

It’s been said many times in the last 24 hours but it bears repeating: regardless who you are voting for — you can write me in if you’d like — get out there and do it. If it takes adidas or Monday Night Football interviews to inspire you, so be it. Just make sure you do.

McGrady’s version of adidas’ election shoes:


Now go. Get thee to a voting booth.

Obama Wants Whats Best For College Football

I’m not sure how many undecided college football fan voters are out there, but Barack Obama might have just secured their vote after his little stint on Monday Night Football last night. During his interview with Chris Berman, Boomer asked the Presidential hopeful the one thing he would change in the sports world. Obama’s answer echoed a sentiment many sports fans long for: a college football playoff.

No more computers and polls, just good old football deciding the champion. It’s a novel concept, I know, but I’m thinking this — this right here — is change we can actually believe in.

As for the equal time portion of this post, John McCain was asked the same question and he said he’d like to see performance-enhancing drugs eliminated from the sports universe. This, like Obama’s desire for a college football playoff, rings just as true. After sitting through the last baseball offseason, dealing with the never-ending Roger Clemens saga, I certainly agree with McCain as well.
