The Life and Culture of Kicks

S & S Sports EXTRA – Micheal Jordan Cries, Freshmen Step Up, And Superman Has A Baby

Look what happened by the time some of us went to bed 9or was still at work):

Freshman steps in, Mizzou beats Marquette 83-79 (with video!!!)

The Missouri freshman was brilliant through all of it—and never more clutch than when he came off the bench to “pinch shoot” for the injured J.T. Tiller with 5.5 seconds left Sunday.

English made both free throws to give the Tigers the go-ahead points in an 83-79 victory over Marquette.

Yes, folks, this is how stars are born in the NCAA tournament.

“He was sitting there auditioning for it,” Missouri coach Mike Anderson said. “Kim, he just gave me that look, and sometimes you just have that feeling and he went up and shot the ball well.”

Griffin show storms into Sweet 16 (also WITH VIDEO lol)

Late in Saturday’s game, as Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin stepped to the free-throw line, a heckler began taunting the nation’s best player.

“Hey Griffin!” the fan said. “Guess what! You’re not Superman!”

Zack Novak may have a different opinion. He, after all, was the Michigan player who Griffin soared over for a posterizing dunk that’s sure to be replayed thousands of times on YouTube, “SportsCenter” – and in Novak’s nightmares.

“Honestly, I’m kind of numb to that stuff now,” said Taylor Griffin, Blake’s brother and teammate. “That’s just what he does. It’s always something big. It can’t just be a normal dunk. He has to bring the house down.”

The Sprint Center crowd went bananas when Griffin flexed his muscles after the slam – and things really got loud about 10 minutes later, when the final horn sounded in Oklahoma’s 73-63 victory.

And yes, this is another video that you must watch. Man these play offs this year just seems to be the best in the lst few years to me for some reason. could be wrong though…

Jordan’s son wins state championship

And finally and probably will be the most talked about story on the sneaker blogs, Micheal Jordan’s son (and team of course) wins the state championship. I guess his sneaker credit just went up.

The Nike Vandal High Michigan-72

(looks like a sneaker got hurt in the fight)

One sneaker harmed, no shoes hurt… those Wolverine sneakers that are suppossed to come out later this year will feel the pinch. No doubt it would have had more value if the Wolverines went all the way or close to it.
