I want to start off with a shout out to Derek Webb, I was fortunate enough to get to his show at The Dame last night. If you haven't heard of him, it's worth your time to check out his myspace.
Well my computer is still on the fritz, so I don't have access to my library of pictures. But I do have access to youtube, and I'll get to that in a minute. Converse updated their website sometime yesterday. It's got a feature on the Wade 3.0 and it's really worth your time to click through and learn about the shoe and Wade. They also finally show off some of the other endorsers, well sort of. If you click on the Basketball button, and then click on "Find out about Open Gym" in the bottom right hand corner, you'll see a picture featuring Maurice Evans, Acie Law IV, Kirk Hinrich, Udonis Haslem, Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver, and Jameer Nelson. These are not all of the members of the Converse team, but it's nice to see them finally get some love on the Website.
The second thing on the list is NBA Tip-Off, and from this press release it appears that Converse will be sponsoring ESPN's NBA Tip-Off show this season. This starts opening night Oct 31, witht he CAVS vs MAVS followed by the Sonics vs Nuggets. Very cool to see Converse every night ESPN has an NBA game.
The final thing I wanted to share with you today is the new Dwyane Wade commercial that will start playing Sunday during the Giants vs Dolphins game. With a commercial were less is more I'll just let it speak for itself, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by, pass the word along.
