As World Aids Day is being celebrated today, it was announced that U2 frontman, Bono, has teamed up with sportswear giant, Nike, as part of Bono’s (RED) brand and the Global Fund to Fight Aids.

Reebok’s newest invention has left many women curious. Can sneakers be the answer to our prayers for a better body?
You may have seen the commercials for Reebok’s new EasyTone athletic shoes, which claim to help women get fit, as they tighten and tone the biggest problem areas: the legs and butt. Apparently, the secret is the “balance ball inspired technology” under the heels and forefoot, which engage the muscles in your legs and glutes. And Reebok says its EasyTone sneakers tone calves and hamstrings 11 percent more than regular walking shoes and claim the shoes tone glutes 28 percent more.
Though they sound like miracle workers, the sneakers have not come without controversy. Not only do their claims come into question but many disapprove of the EasyTone commercial which features a very toned model, lecturing on how the shoes … Read More »
It’s Thanksgiving day. For many of us, that means family, food and of course, football. Whether you’re a fan or not, you might want to tune in to this afternoon’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders. Tony Romo won’t just be the focus on the field as the Cowboys starting quarterback, but the football hunk will also be appearing during the commercial breaks. The Starter clothing brand will be unveiling a new commercial featuring Romo and their new “Never Stop” slogan.
The commercial, which was shot in the off-season by famed director Dave Meyers, shows Romo breaking tackles while having his football equipment torn off. As he crosses the goal line, he is wearing Starter workout gear.
According to Romo, “The whole idea is to relate to everybody. They’ve done a great job with the product and it’s … Read More »
Tim Lincecum, right-handed pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, won his second consecutive Cy Young Award last week. He’s only the 8th player in baseball history to win the award in two straight seasons. At only 25 years-old, Lincecum has become the face of the Giants team, he has dominated NL batters, and he’s established himself as one of the best pitchers in the game.
From his unconventional throwing mechanics to his unique fashion sense, Linceum has a style all his own, both on and off the field. Teammates have nicknamed him “The Freak” because his size, wild windup and unique pitches manage to translate into great results. And when it comes to media appearances, rather than sporting the usual business professional clothing like his teammates, Lincecum opts for a more casual look. Reminiscent of a “skater,” he can often … Read More »
New York Mets fans had high expectations for the 2009 season. They hoped that a brand new stadium would be the beginning of a memorable year. Instead, they were plagued with injuries and losses and memories that the fans, and the team, hope to forget.
Now the team is taking a cue from the early, more successful days of the franchise. The Mets announced yesterday that they will wear a new pinstriped home uniform that “combines old and new elements of Mets uniforms” as their primary home jersey. The Mets created the retro uniform following positive responses to the jerseys that the 1969 World Champion Mets wore during their 40th anniversary celebration in August. [Mets.com] The Mets will also continue to wear their white uniform at home with the black jerseys as an alternate.
These new uniforms will go on sale beginning this Friday, November … Read More »
Many male golfers have a distinct style. Tiger Woods is never without his Nike red polo on Sundays and “the shark” collection will always be synonymous with Greg Norman. These days, a new trend has developed among female golfers: Pink.
Women are now the fastest growing segment of the golfing industry and companies are trying to attract as many females as possible. Pink has been one such way to do so. Pink polos, hats and skirts are dominating course wear, in addition to the pink clubs, tees and golf balls being used as well. The color is becoming so prominent among female golf fashions, that’s it is considered to be one of the basics, alongside black and white. And in a sport that has been dominated by men, pink is a way for women, especially younger female golfers, to … Read More »
Three Super Bowl rings, a beautiful wife and insanely good looks. Tom Brady certainly has it all. The only downside? He plays for the New England Patriots. Just kidding.
Now Brady can add “GQ Man of the Year” to his already impressive resume.
