  • We Go Behind the Scenes for the Jordan XX9 Release

    Today marks a revolutionary day for Jordan Brand. The brand released their XX9 signature shoe and as we’re going to see is the first of it’s kind. Each year Jordan sets out to push the boundaries of performance and design. Their new “Tailored For Flight” campaign focuses around their new woven technology. Last year the brand focused on a huge step in stability in compression and deflection with their Flight Plate innovation in the XX8 and this year, Jordan is taking it up a notch with a modified plate and completely woven upper. The Jordan team traveled to Italy to find the premier craftsmen and machines for weaving. Using state-of-the-art weaving machines, the team learned they could provide all four major elements of the shoe in a single layer of material. The upper woven materials constrict, but also extract to the players foot creating one seamless mold with minimal foot hotspots. The modified plate provides managed compression and deflection of the Nike Zoom Air cushioning units, creating a larger sweet spot for optimal performance. The shoe marks the first time since the Jordan XI were released that the brand was worried they wouldn’t make deadline. Tinker Hatfield, Nike’s Vice President for more »

  • Bruce Lee Revealed as Mystery Character in Upcoming UFC Video Game

The most notable, a yellow poster with a verticle black stripe down the left side a piece of the iconic jumpsuit worn by Bruce Lee in “Game of Death” then brought back to life by Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill”. Dana White had this to say about the martial arts legend in an interview with Fight Times in 2004, “Actually, the father of mixed martial arts, if you will, was Bruce Lee. If you look at the way Bruce Lee trained, the way he fought, and many of the things he wrote, he said the perfect style was no style. You take a little something from everything. You take the good things from every different discipline, use what works, and you throw the rest away.” The game is set for release in Spring 2014 for the Xbox One and Playstation 4.

  • Skydiver Nearly Gets Hit by a Meteor

    It was business as usual for Nowegian Anders Helstrup, jumping out of a plane, soaring through the air until he released his parachute. Helstrup was enjoying the air up there, when a basketball sized rock flew past him. A meteor soared past the skydiver at 300km/hr which in MPH is about a million we think. Around 500 meteorites reach the Earth’s surface each year, with many thousands more burning up before reaching the ground, so the chances of a skydiver seeing a meteor at this close of a proximity is about one in a quadrillion percent.
