I'm getting tired of the Nike threads too, but this was pretty good to get to work today. Most athletic administrators (ADs down to interns) subscribe to a daily news blast called "D1 Ticker"...today Michigan was atop the ticker.
Michiganis headed to Nike in a deal that will commence in 2016 & could be worth over $10m per year once full details of the contract are released, comes amid reports that adidas offered an historically-large & long agreement that the Wolverines passed-up to ink with the Swoosh, cash component would be significantly larger than what Nike is paying it's next largest partner in Florida State's $4.4m & would dwarf that of Big Ten foe Ohio State, UCLA will likely be the highest-paid brand in the adidas portfolio - link, link
I'm interested to know what Adidas offered, but if nothing else...Michigan flexed it's muscles against the other major Universities (when it comes to apparel - if it actually accounts for anything in your opinion).
Note: Not sure if the links work, but the blurb is what I was looking to share.
I'll start, in approx. order of how frequently I visit:
-TD Ameritrade (I have a modest amount of $ that I trade)
-my general news feed collector in yahoo
-Collider (entertainment news and reviews)
-WSJ and NYT
-Detroit News sports
Like anyone, there are many others I visit, but not daily. I've heard that porn is big on the internet but I wouldn't know too much about that :). Also FB but not not daily.
How about you?

Hopefully this helps them win another title and Duncan can go out on top. I'm a Pistons fan, but I've always liked the Spurs and their team concept. The way they dismantled LeBron and the Heat two years ago, was just awesome.
LET'S GET THE WEEKEND STARTED OFF RIGHT!!
As we near what I hope is a long weekend for most readers, it's time to pause and consider the world of beverages that get us moving in the morning. For many, it is a typical cup of drip coffee. Others might look to a vodka and OJ to usher them into a patriotic weekend.
My new obsession is nitro coffee. I wouldn't say I am a coffee snob, but a couple local shops have taken to making iced coffee infused with cream and nitrogen (also some CO2). My god it tastes like caffeine Guinness. But at $5 a pop it is about as expensive as a beer, so remains a rare treat.
What's in your cup?
