I’m actually a fan of how Nike got itself started, looking for hard work and authenticity over money and fast but cheap. If you haven’t read the biography of how Phil Knight built Nike in the book Shoe Dog.
Recently, Nike did something else inspiring and if you watch the video, make sure you have some tissues.
It’s been a couple of months, longer than we wanted, since my wife and I have had a date night together. We went to a local restaurant that my wife picked which was a fantastic pub with excellent food! It was the first time I had a lobster roll or fried scallops. I think I prefer grilled of each.
We had a blast at the Ashland county Fair this weekend with my parents. We get some animals, ate some fair food, and my oldest got to see the demolition derby for the first time. Enjoy!
I’ll be honest guys, except for the Urban Meyer legal stuff, until 8am today when I saw my niece was wearing Ohio State attire, I hadn’t even thought about college football. Normally I’m pumping myself up for the season, doing a very amateur bit of research on the schedule and roster, and planning my weekends accordingly.
I was caught off guard, honestly, without much I was unengaged. The off-the-field drama is a deterrent for me. It’s why I do not watch professional football anymore. It’s a great game to watch, but the news seems to be half about what is not happening on the field.
