Must Watch :: “A Beautiful Game” short from FOX Sports Live

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, Featured, Social Issues, TOWtv

* This video is outstanding. I could go on a big rant about it, but I will leave these words that were given by a friend on the BP_TOW fam when he watch it and gave us the heads up:

“Maybe it’s because I have two daughters, maybe it’s because it’s about the sport that touches so many but I challenge anybody to watch this short segment on #FOXSPORTS and not tear up…a true look into how so many young girls are not afforded opportunities they should be. Need more stories like this!!”

If there is one thing you do today, make sure you set aside 10 minutes and watch this.

Then, make sure you set aside another 5 minutes to think about what you just watched.

There has been a ton of great content this World Cup cycle, but this is hands down the best piece.

* Side note *

Nazanin Boniadi, the person who narrates this is the great actress on Homeland, just in case you were wondering.

Stephen Colbert. Eminem Interview. Public Access TV. Perfect.

Filed under: Humor, Music

Em shows up around the 22m mark.

This is incredible.

Stephen Colbert has been slowly getting himself back in to the game – his hiatus being because he’s taking Lettermans time slot – putting out some stuff on social media and the youtube but this takes the cake.

He stops by and hosts a public access show. Its a random town (no disrespect) in Michigan. Interviews the regular hosts, which is effing fantastic, and then brings on Eminem.

It’s perfect.

The Pit Bull stuff. The hoodie stuff. HVAC. Featured on somebody. The trailer. Jake is jacked by the way. #Hilarious. The community calendar.

H/t to complex for this

Nike Find Your Fast Campaign

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, Nike, Training, Wayne Rooney

Speed in sports is being constantly pushed. Soccer players are faster, the pace of games is quicker and technology keeps advancing to help both players and the game continue to become faster.

Nike has launched a global campaign called “Find Your Fast” that challenges people to run their fastest time this summer. That may mean training to run your fastest time for one mile or a personal record for something longer. Nike is challenging people to push themselves to get faster.

Neal Brennan, co-creator of the Chappelle Show, collaborated with Nike on the direction of the campaign’s anthem piece, “Find Your Fast.” Quick highlights include a fast cameo from one of the world’s fastest men, Michael Johnson; the world’s fastest woman, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce; the world’s fastest commercial starring Kobe Bryant and world famous magician David Blaine; the infamously fast Road Runner cartoon and a nod to one of Nike’s speediest running shoes, the Nike Air Zoom Elite 8.

“Fast can be about beating the defender to a spot, or not letting the offensive player get to his spot,” explains Kobe Bryant about the importance of fast on the basketball court.

Part of the campaign is centered around the Nike Air Zoom Elite 8 sneaker.

Many of these athletes train or compete in shoes with Nike Zoom Air technology. The Nike Zoom Air Elite, a favorite amongst many top runners, plays a star role in the ad. Whether quickly moving from shot to shot during a fast paced tennis match, speedy lateral changes in a football game or quick bursts of speed on the basketball court, Zoom allows athletes of every caliber can optimize their quest for speed.

And this is a good looking training sneaker.

Wayne Rooney got in on the action as well.

Six Nike Master Trainers are joining forces this summer to launch a 12-week fitness challenge for the Nike+ Training Club (NTC) App. The Find Your Fast NTC Challenge is specifically designed to improve speed, power, and agility through a diverse set of daily workouts.

The Challenge starts July 6 and the first Master Trainer workout — Marie Purvis’s Ready, Set, Zoom workout — debuts July 7. After that, a new workout headlined by a different Nike Master Trainer will launch every two weeks, highlighting different types of training to help you feel faster, such as high intensity training, yoga, strength training and barre.

On August 30, you will be challenged to run your fastest mile alongside the Nike+Run Club and the elites speeding towards victory in Beijing. Stay up to date with the Find Your Fast NTC Challenge by following the Nike Sport Feed in the NTC App.

I think I’m going to have to get involved and challenge myself with this program. My new soccer season starts next weekend, so the timing on this works out nicely. Who’s down for the challenge?

adidas Unveils Brand New Juventus Kits for 2015-16

Filed under: Adidas, Culture & Lifestyle, Italy, Jerseys, Juventus, Serie A

juventus-home-kit-2015-16-adidas-1

Starting today and going through the 2012 season, Juventus will be wearing adidas uniforms. The home kit is classic with the black and white striping and they look really sharp. According to adidas:

Home jersey design
Loyal to tradition, the new home kit displays the iconic black and white jersey, white shorts and white socks. The new jersey features the black and white striped design recalling the classic Juventus style. The stripes are not outlined but they intersect, creating integration between the white and the black. The black hem at the bottom of the jersey displays a tonal graphic print featuring the J letter, the club symbol, and some details evoking the unique exterior design of the Juventus Stadium. The three adidas black stripes are placed on white inserts on the sleeves to underline the bond with the brand.
The V-shaped neckline is white, the adidas logo is black with white outline. The shorts are white with three black stripes. The Juventus crest is on the front and the black adidas logo on the back. The socks are white with three black stripes.
The names and the numbers of the players will be in black.

The away jersey is not only really great looking, but apparently there is a tradition of Juventus wearing pink jerseys. This is certainly going to give them a unique look on the field while paying homage to the past.

Away jersey design
The away kit combines a classic back to the roots design with a touch of innovation. Since 1897, the year of the club foundation, until 1903 the Juventus players have worn pink jerseys and black shorts creating a kit that has become iconic and an integral part of the club’s history. The adidas designers have thus reinterpreted tradition by combining the pale pink color of the historic club jersey with brighter pink applications on the sleeves and on the front in-between the white stripes to create perfect mix of authenticity and modernity.

As with the home jersey, the hem displays an application, white in this case, on which the J letter and references to the exterior design of the Juventus Stadium are featured, tone-on-tone. The round neck collar is black as well the logo and the adidas three stripes. The shorts are black with the three stripes and the adidas logo on the back is light pink. The Juventus crest is on the front. The socks are pale pink with bright pink and white inserts recalling the stripes on the central panel on the chest. The names and the numbers of the players will be in black.

“I’m delighted and it’s a dream move for me to come here and play for such a big club with all of its history. I can’t wait to get started.

“As soon as Liverpool showed their interest in me, I was happy and just wanted the deal to go through.

“The gaffer has shown a lot of interest in me and this is a place where I can improve as a player, I think. It’s definitely a good opportunity to come here and try to fulfil my potential.

“I’ve played at Anfield before and know what the atmosphere is all about. It’s a great atmosphere and will make me rise to the challenge. I’m really looking forward to it and hopefully it can push me on to putting on good performances.”

Clyne follows James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino in agreeing transfers to Liverpool ahead of next season.
