In the least shocking news of the day Dwayne Wade has decided not to play in the Olympics so that he can undergo knee surgery. We all saw this coming. I am not saying Wade was not playing through an injury in the playoffs but he is also the same guy who was bitching for not getting paid to play in the Olympics. It cost a lot to buy $500 glasses without frames. If you remember Wade didn’t seem to understand how sponsorship works. You know how they want you to represent their brand in an international venue.
Regardless I hope he has a speedy recovery.
sad happy to say that the latest trend from Adidas, sneakers with shackles, has been cancelled before they could even be released. Apparently the shoes reminds people of slavery. Personally they remind me of 1940′s prison yard workers but I can see the slavery thing too. The shoes originally were supposed by a reboot of high tops designed by Jeremy Scott. If you don’t know Scott by name then surely you’ll remember him as the guy who designed Brittney Spears elastic outfit in her Toxic video. The shoe didn’t get any buzz until the company started promoting them on Facebook. At which point the JS Roundhouse Mid became known as the slavery shoe.
The promotion line for the shoe was, “a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles.” So does that mean the shackles double as an anti-theft system?
Maria Sharapova has all but clinched the French Open title. Everybody’s favorite Russian beat fourth-seeded Petra Kvitova in straight sets to reach the final.
Sharapova will face-off against Italian Sara Errani. This will be the first Grand Slam final for Errani, and if Sharapova
doesn’t eff-up wins then she will become the 10th woman ever to win all four Grand Slams to complete a career Grand Slam.
With the semi-final win, Sharapova has regained the number one ranking. And we all know how relevant that is, considering Danish star and undergarment designer Caroline Wozniacki held the top spot for most of last year and has yet to win a Grand Slam.
