NFL Helmets Reimagined by Artists in Mexico

Mexico City is hosting the NFL tonight with the first Monday Night Football match played outside of the US. To set the mood for the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans’ bout at the iconic Azteca Stadium, local artists reimagined the helmets for each team in the league.

As with any piece of art, appreciating it really depends on the individual, but there were definitely some redesigned NFL team helmets that looked doper than others. My favorite? It was hard to choose between the Philadelphia Eagles (above), the Detroit Lions, and the Dallas Cowboys. One thing that was a little bit easier to assess was that, much like their performance on the field this season, the Chicago Bears is pretty much the worst. The rest of the helmets are pretty dope overall.

Check out the rest of the Mexican artists’ NFL team helmets below. Continue Reading

Storied NFL team the Green Bay Packers have revealed their Nike-designed alternate uniform for the upcoming 2015-16 season. The “new” design replicates the team’s 1937 look, which GB hasn’t sported since 1994.

This uniform of a navy blue and gold jersey with faded gold pants and navy socks. This color scheme is paired with the gold yoke across the shoulders, the distinctive feature of their uniforms from 1937-49.

The fan jerseys will be available for purchase on Nike.com and in select retailers beginning today.

We’re die-hard Chicago Bears fans so eff the Packers (generally speaking), but props on the look of the uniform. See more pictures below. Continue Reading

Video: See Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Show feat. Missy Elliott & Lenny Kravitz

posted by Oscar February 1, 2015

Katy Perry was the artist selected to put on the iconic Super Bowl Halftime Show, leaving Pop’s favorite “California Girl” to bring out the best of what she’s got. While Perry herself did a pretty decent job on her end, it was Missy Elliot that stole the show with her performance of her hits “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It,” and “Lose Control.” Lenny Kravitz was around for half a sec too.

Check out the performance above.

The Baltimore Ravens will be playing the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday. It will be known as the battle of the two Harbaughs. Both teams are coming off road victories. The Ravens traveled to New England and upset the favored Patriots 28-13. The Ravens defense dominated the second half of the game from start to end. The San Francisco 49ers are also coming off a road victory. They had a 28-24 comeback win against the Atlanta Falcons.

I was put on to Nike’s Fuel Band by the homie over at Modern Notoriety (I totally recommend the site if you are all about that sneaker life) who totally recommended it.
