Death of the Ultra Boost.

Since 2015, I have been an avid supporter of the Adidas Ultra Boost. My first pair was the solar red and black 1.0 and I even caught them on sale (now they got for at least $400 brand new) but that is not the point. The point is that they were stylish, comfortable and a bit expensive but not so much so to make them seem unreasonably priced. Now it is 2019 and five iterations later, Adidas have decided to completely revamp the shoe that may have singlehandedly saved the brand, Yeezy be damned! What's the outcome? The catastrophe that...

NFL - No Football Life

Leave it up to Donald Trump to add gasoline to the fire, which is the ongoing NFL boycott in retaliation for the perceived (no, the actual) whiteballing of Colin Kaepernick. I was one of the people that actually felt Trump's election would be the best thing to happen to this country because in electing Trump, the political fraternity allowed an unqualified, narcissistic, hyper-sensitive man-child into their fray. In doing this, it inadvertently lifted the veil on purveyors of white supremacy parading as congressmen and women advocating on the behalf of every American. And for that, I actually have to thank...
