These sneakers tell a story!
Most people think of sneakers as sneakers. Well every sneaker comes with a story. Don’t just look at a pair of new Jordan’s, and be like” oh there just a pair of sneakers”. No they’re a story, they can’t tell you so you have to look them up yourself. Look up their story and you’ll be surprised what is read! Told from nike themselves they tell this kids story!
In the inside of the tongue features Isaac’s initials, and the dates of his birth and passing.
Several parts of the shoe glow in the dark, including the eyelets, lace toggle, outsole, Nike Air unit and quarter panels. A cool design to put on a sneaker, make these one of a kind, make them something out of everyones dreams.
The upper features the words of a poem in black light ink that Isaac wrote just a day before he passed away. Some of the words include: “My team. My family. We are brothers forever. No matter what.”
Each pair includes a flashlight to complete the glow-in-the-dark effect, inspired by Isaac’s love of video games. “We’ve been honored to work with Isaac’s family and thank them for their courage to complete the project in the name of their son and to support the much-needed fundraising efforts for Doernbecher,” said Michael Doherty, Nike’s Global Creative Presentation Director and member of the Doernbecher Foundation Board of Directors. In 2004, Doherty and his then-teenage son proposed the idea of the Doernbecher Freestyle Program as a creative way to raise awareness and funds for the children’s hospital, while empowering its young patients through design. Limited quantities of the Doernbecher Air Jordan 5 Retro will be sold on Nike.com and at Nike retail locations across the country beginning Saturday, Sept. 14, with all proceeds from sales of the shoes benefitting OHSU Doernbecher. To date, the program has raised more than $6 million to help expand pioneering research, support clinical care, purchase state-of-the-art equipment, recruit new experts and help cover the cost of care for families most in need.
Now before you say anything about jordans, all of them have a story to them!
Joe Haden, this man right here, got money. Want to know how he got money, playing for the Cleveland Browns. Hes number 23, and the cornerback for his team. Born on April 14, 1989 (age 25), Fort Washington, MD. His life ever since his birth Must have been pretty good, because his life now is just every guys heaven. Sneakers, everything. If you want to see his sneaker life watch the video below
Is Joe Haden one of the best cornerbacks? Right from ESPN they said,”BEREA, Ohio — Everything Joe Haden does on the field is tailored to one thing.
He wants to spark it, shape it, shake it.
For corners, there’s only one conversation.
“Everything I do is to be the best corner in the game,” said Haden, who matches up again with Cincinnati’s A.J. Green on Sunday in FirstEnergy Stadium.
The money — a five-year, $68 million extension signed in the offseason that includes $45 million guaranteed — says he’s close. Only Patrick Peterson has more in guarantees at $48 million. The common narrative — dominated by Richard Sherman, Peterson and Darrelle Revis — says he’s not. Haden’s name is rarely mentioned with those three.
Browns players and coaches say that needs to change.
“He’s as good as anybody in the league,” safety Jim Leonhard said. “I see it every day. He’s definitely in the conversation.”
The fact that Leonhard is saying this is significant because he played three seasons with Revis in New York, where Revis Island emerged. Revis would cover a top receiver with no safety help and let the other 10 players breathe. Haden anchors the same defense, run by former Jets coordinator Mike Pettine, and does so with the same tenacity, Leonhard said. The Browns mix and match coverages, but Haden will spend a bulk of the game on the best receiver, often in aggressive press-man coverage, with minimal or no help.
The numbers from Haden’s play since early November show he’s making a compelling argument for a spot among the greats.
When primarily matched up with Green, Vincent Jackson, Andre Johnson, Julio Jones andSammy Watkins in Weeks 9-13, Haden held those receivers to a collective average of 4.8 catches, 51.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game.
Now Joe Haden didn’t get this good due to the simple fact he plays, and cause football is something you need to do and learn to be the best. He has to train and practice to be the best. For athletes al around they need to eat eel, or they are not gonna play the way they want to, due to the fact they got no energy or healthy balance. Why do you think as kids, our mothers always said” eat your breakfast before you leave”? Well Joe Haden does eat his breakfast before his games, thats what he needs to do, if not he wont be playing the way he wants to. And for a player to play good, they need self-confidence from not just their team, but the coaches. If they are also having a boast in their ego or confidence, they will most definitely play to their full potential. Now below it shows something about Joe Haden.
Jones was the only receiver to score during that span, and that touchdown came off a defensive team breakdown where Haden and safety Donte Whitner bit on a play-action fake, not qualifying as a true downfield coverage touchdown. Jones had five catches for 68 yards against the Browns and followed that up with 10 catches for 189 yards and a score against Peterson and the Cardinals a week later, a fact that’s not lost on Whitner when stumping for Haden. Jones “ate [Peterson] up,” Whitner said, but “not our guy.”
Deepening the intrigue for Sunday’s matchup is Haden’s handle on Green, who has seven catches for 81 yards in his last three meetings with Haden. That’s 27 yards a game. For context, Green averages 91 yards per game in his other 19 regular-season games going back to 2013.
Haden’s biggest struggle came Sunday against T.Y. Hilton, who scored two touchdowns and gained 151 yards in a 25-24 Colts win. But Haden actually played an impressive game, covering four different receivers and causing a fumble on a Hilton tackle. Fifty-one of Hilton’s yards came against other corners, and Hilton’s last-minute, 1-yard touchdown came off a broken rub play. The Colts were on the field for 48 offensive plays in the second half as the Browns’ offense sputtered.
The numbers from the first five receivers prompted defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil to call Haden “the best corner in football.” Apparently Pro Bowl voters think so, too as Haden is first in voting.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has seen a lot of Haden over the years. He admires Haden’s play, and doesn’t look forward to going against him.
“Great transition, great feet, great length; he plays fearless,” Lewis said. “I really thought those were the qualities he had coming out of Florida. I’m one of his biggest supporters here. I see him week in and week out.”
Haden started the season slow by his standards, with one pass deflection through his first five games. Pettine’s press-man scheme takes time to master. Plus, Haden was dealing with a hip injury that caused more pain than he let on.
Once the hip felt better, he started openly lobbying for more assignments in what he calls the “Revis defense.” He revels in the vulnerability, knowing there’s nothing but open grass behind him if he gets caught sleeping.
“I want that responsibility,” Haden said. “When I started getting more of that, I started to get more comfortable.”
The Browns mix and match coverages a lot, so sometimes a play designed for Haden covering the top receiver at the line of scrimmage can turn into something different, such as a shift to another receiver or a zone coverage.
Pettine knows Haden wants the top matchup every down and will get plenty of chances at it. The Browns also know Haden is versatile enough to move all over the line of scrimmage when necessary.
“To me, it’s been kind of a hallmark of our style of defense, our system, to have that type of corner that you can lock down one receiver or one side of the field and be able to kind of allocate resources coverage-wise elsewhere,” Pettine said. “To me, it’s high level.”
Haden agrees he’s “probably” playing the best football of his career, which validates the financial value the team placed on him in the offseason.
Is that enough to elevate Haden’s name into the top-corner discussion? Leonhard will say this: He sees a lot of Revis in Haden.
“There are very few guys that are asked to do what he’s asked to do,” Leonhard said. “Only the special ones can.”

The NYPD. The police the people that need to protect us. The weak, the innocent, the scared. Instead what are we getting? Murders and war with the police. Do we really deserve whats going on around the states? The main talk now is what happened in Ferguson. This really gets me angry knowing the people that protect us to do soo much harm to us.
Whats really going on with these police
Senator Rand Paul should be commended for sparking the conversation that has erupted over his statement , famously ridiculed by Jon Stewart , that cigarette taxes bear some responsibility for the NYPD killing of Eric Garner over a “crime” so trivial as selling loosies . That the discussion has quickly morphed from a concern about one revenue generating “law” that provided the impetus for Mr Garner’s death to the 300,000 some odd laws and regulations that have resulted in the “overcriminalization” of 70% of the populace .
This is a discussion that , while occupying billions of pixels in the libertarian world , has until now been one that has been arrogantly swept under the rug by the Statist supporters in the main stream media . This debate is long overdue and as the following articles make plain …

Something that everyone wants. Something the adults have but complain about having. Are they serious??? Your getting money to work, while us kids go to school everyday bored out of our minds. This is a problem. Kids will die for a job because we are getting paid to work. With that money the things we can get are endless.
Right now I’m looking for a job, a job that will pay or at least have its benefits. With Footaction pros of the job is getting something you can call “dibs”. With dibs you’ll be getting first grabs at the sneakers if you can. You can also so I’ve heard meet celebrities depending on where you work at. The cons is possible the pay. Like you aren’t gonna be getting paid to just sell the sneakers and you leave with 300 or more in your pocket. But to work in footaction dont expect to go there and think its easy. You need to be on top all the latest sneakers and clothing lines that involves sneakers.
Footlocker will possibly be the same as foot action, due to footlocker owning footaction.
But finding a good job that pays is hard now for kids
A new movie to the series, Terminator Genisys will take hold. Bringing a new movie to the lineup of terminator movies, action packed and making people wonder about a robot war. Last leaving us at terminator salvation.
This is the story of the movie:
In 2003, Doctor Serena Kogan of Cyberdyne Systems convinces death row inmate Marcus Wright to sign his body over for medical research following his execution. A year later, the Skynet system is activated,and begins to perceive humans as a threat, and eradicates much of humanity with nuclear weapons in the “Judgment Day” event.
Nearly 14 years after Judgment Day, in 2018, John Connor leads a Resistance attack on a Skynet base. John discovers human prisoners and schematics for a new type of Terminator, incorporating living tissue. He is the only survivor of the assault after the base is destroyed in a nuclear explosion. Later, and after Connor’s departure, Marcus emerges from the base’s wreckage and starts walking towards Los Angeles.
Arriving in the ruins of Los Angeles, Marcus is saved from a T-600 Terminator by Kyle Reese and the mute child Star. Kyle tells Marcus about the war between humans and Skynet. Hearing John’s radio broadcast, the three leave in search of the Resistance. They survive an attack at a gas station, but Kyle, Star, and several other humans are taken prisoner.
Marcus tears out the hardware linking him to Skynet and assists John in battling a new T-800 model 101 Terminator. John is mortally wounded during the fight, but succeeds in destroying the Skynet base by rigging several Terminator fuel cells to explode, detonating them as he, Marcus, Kyle, and Star are airlifted out. Kate attempts to save John’s life, but his heart is too badly damaged. Marcus offers his own heart for transplant, sacrificing himself to save John. Recovering, John radios to the other Resistance fighters that though this battle has been won, the war is far from over.
