The Nike Basketball Christmas Pack 2010-2015. An Overview.

What?! They have Christmas sneakers now? Yep. Kids these days. Seems like they could use some holiday opinion-ing. Nike’s basketball branch has been releasing a “Christmas Pack” every year since 2010. Each of their “signature” athletes gets a Christmas colorway. From 2010, that’s been Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Kobe Bryant. Though he had a “Christmas” […]

Here’s the Phillies 2012 Stars & Stripes Hat (Minus any Stars & Stripes)

As has been the pattern since 2008, Major League Baseball will be using special hats for Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and September 11 as part of their “Stars & Stripes” program. Mixing the design up every year, they’re actually eschewing the namesake “stars and stripes,” replacing them with a digital camouflage pattern. (Let me say […]

UniDiction 2011: Week 16 – Eagles vs. Cowboys and Week 15 Round-Up

follow me on twitter (@dancfuller) Again, the Eagles one, I won. Good deal. Week 15 Round-Up A little more uniform action in Week 15 than we’ve seen in a while.

Z2K9 — The Day the Music Froze During the Loading Screen

Dan’s review of The Myth of Christmas Starting Earlier Every Year

Dan prefers to think the Nessie does exist, because there’s no proof that it doesn’t. Here we go again.

The Myth of the Christmas Season Coming Earlier Every Year

The Junior Staff has done it again. Instead of reviewing his review per se, I’ll simply re-assess the topic through the lens of having read his review. The issue with his review is simply that it’s plain-old wrong and short-sighted. Nate hates Christmas. I know that Nate is older than I am (by a whole […]
