    And I agree that any of those companies are "investing in America" anytime they renew a contract. To me the contrast is drawn by the fact that Nike is promoting mountaintop removal and ADIDAS is promoting soccer.

    Im a big soccer fan as well, and was so psyched to see the recent news that ADIDAS will continue developing the game in our country by investing so heavily in MLS.
    That positive news, coupled with this travesty from Nike does make a difference to me.

    Oh, the hills are groaning with excess, like a table ceaselessly being set.

      if my alma mater hadn't contracted with them--they offered a huge sum of money comparatively.  To me the fact that the owner is the major backer of a hated rival makes it even worse.  Oh well, I'm off to Provo tomorrow anyway and I'll just have to deal with it.

      They weren't even a player back when I played sports--for soccer it was Adidas or Puma and nobody wore Puma!  I don't recall what we wore for football or hoops though.

      I love being from a city that draws 36,000 for MLS matches and sounds like an EPL stadium.  Sounders will take their second straight Open Cup next month, I hope!

      Seriously, thanks again for the diary.  This is even more callous than normal for them.

          Would have been a fun rematch at Qwest!  Like Cubs and Mariners fans say, though--there's always next year.
