I vowed that if my bracket won this year’s tournament then I would buy shoes from the popular Adidas basketball lineup. There are no losers in the current lineup of Crazy Explosives (low), Harden Vol. 1, and the Dame 3. Currently, Adidas adorns the remaining Kansas and UCLA squads. Lonzo balls in the Hardens. Oddly […]
The sweetness of the sixteen teams still dancing look like this: Florida (4) Wisconsin (8) Baylor (3) South Carolina (7) Gonzaga (1) West Virginia (4) Arizona (2) Xavier (11) Kansas (1) Purdue (4) Oregon (3) Michigan (7) North Carolina (1) Butler (4) Kentucky (2) UCLA (3) Nike holds a dominant position with 12 of the […]
For 2017, Nike has majorities in 9 of the 16 seeded positions. Adidas has two (#13 and 15) while Under Armour has 3 (#8, 14, and 16). UA is not represented by teams in the top four seeds. Nike and UA are tied at the six and seven spots.
Not much to say other than the powerhouse conferences have an affinity to Nike. The ACC has the most teams this year with eight followed by seven from the Big Ten.
Need to pick up a few things. A controller. A charging station with batteries for two controllers.
The first kicks analysis of every Big Dance is the overall makeup of the dancing shoes, specifically who makes’em. My first kicks examination failed for several teams – North Dakota, Middle Tennessee, Dayton, NC Central, Vermont, Iona, and the play-in matchups. Obviously, I’ll have to update my charts after the first round when I get […]
Last year, I was late with my 2016 Kicks Analysis with the Warriors of Hawaii making a run in the Dance. But in 2017, Hawaii’s done (although they did get to play in the postseason), so I have some time to launch this year’s Kicks Analysis – a little early but also a little incomplete. […]
With some self-imposed downtime, I used this opportunity to look over my site, make some updates, and even rediscover a thing or two. Amazon Store Heh, I had forgetten that I have a store on Amazon where I highlight items mentioned here. I had strayed away from this Amazon store for awhile, trying different things, […]
Yup, North Face is yet another popular brand you can find discounted at Ross. While I’ve see some North Face shoes and shirts at Ross, I had never paid attention to the jackets. But one fateful day at the Hawaii Kai Ross, one shopper had pulled out a few North Face jackets, and that’s when […]
Not a Ninetendo Switch but a Switch from my Canon DSLR to a mirror less Olympus. And another switch – I bought this OM-D E-M10II locally from Best Buy, not online from Amazon. Camelcamelcamel told me that my target Amazon price was reached and went even lower at $650. Wanting to actually see the smallish […]
Oh I forgot, but there was one tiny disappointment on my first visit to the Nordstrom Rack in Waikiki, but more on that later. Unbeknownst to me, this location was open from late 2016! Anyways, a smart marketing ploy of two $5 store credits got me in the store in early 2017, and there was a […]
Nitrogenie closed for business only in the beginning of February, but already its space has been occupied. Mr. Tea is open for business, and although the store interior does look a little Spartan, customers are exiting with drinks in hand. I don’t know about Mr. Tea or if there are other locations, but with a […]
