Nike is running out of "heroes"

Pockafrusta: Nike has Michael Jordan. Even at 50, he's all the hero that Nike needs.

And, if you got 3 to 1 odds that he'll stay a hero, Jordan will probably put some serious bank on a bet like that.

They should probably get rid of all their ads which rely upon violent imagery.

I think he beat her with the cricket bat, she tried to hide in the bathroom, he couldn't get in and shot at her through the door.

So he accidentally shot her in the head four times and then accidentally beat her in the head with a cricket bat several times?  Sounds legit to me.

If only he'd have a gun to stop those bad, bad criminals from shooting his girlfriend... oh wait.

Sadly, these failed sponsorships will be just a blip on the radar to Nike. Oscar, Lance, Tiger (still under contract), Vick (under contract), etc. None of this really matters when you can re-manufacture a "throwback" Jordan shoe that costs barely anything to make since all the R & D and molds are already paid for, and charge basically whatever you want for it. Nike's real money is made off of sheep and groupthink mentality. Michael Jordan was also an a**hole too by the way.

It leaked over the weekend that he beat his gf's skull in with a cricket bat after he shot her four times. That dude is farked.

I just heard they determined that her skull was cracked,not if it was before or after the shooting; I would guess he cracked it before he shot her since a .357 to the head is pretty skull cracking on its own.

I am thinking

Roid rage
Cricket Practice
Oh Shait I killed Her
Call friends for advice
Yeah I'll make it look like an accident
Hello 911
Fire up the publicity machine so i can claim to be framed like that dude OJ

To be fair, in the topsy turvey world of paralympics, having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is often useful.
