Desire, Wants & Needs: Air Jordan "Playoff" 13

A photo of the long awaited and highly coveted Air Jordan "Playoff" 13 has surfaced. The shoe was originally released in 1997, as Jordan captured the 5th of his 6 titles. The "Playoff" colorway of the 13's have never been retroed and is one of the hardest pair of Jordans to come across. From the photo, the shoe looks to have remained true to the original design. Along with the "Flint" and white/red colorways, the "Playoffs" will be the 3rd pair of 13's to release in the next 6 months. The shoe is scheduled to be released in February 2011 but it has yet to be confirmed. Is this shoe a must have for you? Let us know!

Desire, Wants & Needs: "Cool Grey" Air Jordan 11

Another holiday, another classic Air Jordan release. It has been rumored since Mid-Summer that the "Cool Grey" Air Jordan 11 would be retroed this upcoming holiday season but now it has been confirmed. A year to the day after the epic release of the "Spacejams" Jordan will be releasing the highly coveted "Cool Grey" colorway on Thursday, December 23rd, 2010. Personally, I don't feel the release is nearly as monumental as last year's "Spacejams" but maybe that's just me. What do you think? Let us know.

Desire, Wants & Needs: Eggplant 1/2 Cent

The highly anticipated "Eggplant" 1/2 Cent, which is the 5th colorway of the shoe, is scheduled for release on Saturday, October, 30th 2010.

However a full size run is now available at Pick Your Shoes Get your pair first!

Shout To Roje


Kevin Kolb raised his fist in the air all day yesterday but it was not out of celebration for himself but for his teammate and once backup quarterback Michael Vick. Vick has taken over the starting QB position with a passion. After being removed from football for one year and trying to get back into the swing of things last year with the Eagles, Vick has emerged as one the hottest players if not thee hottest in the NFL.

Vick took the field yesterday afternoon vs the Jacksonville Jaguars and did much of what he did against the Detroit Lions and that is dominate. Throwing for 291 yards with 3 touchdowns, one of which came with less then 10 seconds in the first half, and rushed for another touchdown to seal his performance.

This will truly be one of the feel good stories of the year. A man on the road to redemption. A man who had everything taken away from him trying to get it all back. I have been a Vick supporter from his days in Atlanta and all the way through his legal troubles. All those who shunned him for his mistakes are just the fuel for him to continue his NFL career as one of the elite QB's in the game.

Philadelphia has a new name now, which I as many others hope stays the same for a good amount of time and that is VICKADELPHIA

N.E.R.D. - Nothing (Album Artwork)

All of their albums have their own sound.. I wonder what this one will be...

Vick's Back and Better Than Ever!!

Here are highlights from Vick's second start as Philadelphia Eagles QB and 1st since winning the job permanently over Kevin Kolb. He didn't disappoint with 4 TD's including one rushing in a 28-3 victory over the Jaguars. Watch him work!

What's Good?
Through the struggles Bo and I encountered when trying to expand our network we reached out to bloggers, rappers etc. to help elevate our dreams. When with question I asked them for help and received no response. Personal networking is the key to keep all businesses running SUCCESSFULLY. This is the true lesson of attending college. You can be an over-achiever in every class but if you know no one or become the innovator, your 160 thousand dollar education is wasted. Here is a video Bo stumbled upon that exemplifies our spirit at NC.....It's a Lifestyle!

From The Grid Iron to the Baseball Diamond: Patrick White

Wassup yall, here is a dope sports write up on Pat White by the #TeamNC homie @pablocaspcobar . Check it Out:

Former West Virginia star quarterback Patrick White is going from the Grid Iron to the baseball diamond. White was released this pass week by The Miami Dolphins who had drafted him in 2009 after drooling over the possibility of using him with Ronnie Brown in their Wildcat Offense. Many scouts said after a dismal rookie campaign, the only way the former Mountaineer could remain apart of the Dolphins or just in the NFL was to switch his position to a more flex spot such as wide receiver. White declined and felt that it was time to move on even though he still has the desire to play in the National Football League.
