We’re Cardinal Red?

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Did anyone else notice the new uniforms at the Stanford vs. Notre Dame game? I couldn’t be there in person but I made sure to tune in. The first thing that struck me was the fact that these uniforms had longer sleeves. A trivial matter, until you watch the promo below explaining the entire uniform:

Apparently they build uniforms like they used to build armor – every layer and piece has a purpose. Nike went all out for the uniforms and even made an amazing commercial about it! The commercial was intense. Hopefully as intense as the Stanford fans at next year’s Bowl game! The title of this post is a question, but we are Cardinal Red. It’s our official color. I did like one line from the commercial – “Cardinal Red is a metaphor for the very pulse of life.I don’t think that was ever the intent but it sounds awesome.  For the history of this quote check out the comment below! Get inspired Stanford! The football season may be done but things aren’t over for our football team yet!

P.S. I saw the number 12 and didn’t see Andrew Luck. That part of the ad wasn’t quite as authentic as I would have liked but it’ll do.

Tiger Woods is at the Masters

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

As I’m sure you know, Tiger Woods made his comeback today at Augusta to compete in the first major of the season. The Masters first round coverage can be seen on ESPN right now, and 2nd round coverage will be also be televised by the worldwide leader in sports tomorrow. Tiger teed off at 10:42 PST and is currently 4 shots off the lead through 14 (-2). But I actually wanted to share Nike’s commercial that is intended to reintroduce Tiger to the world. It features his father’s voice, and what you might expect a father to say to his son after navigating a scandal. What do you think about it?
