    Yeah....frankly I can't think of anyone better....

    Besides they are selling a brand not a sport....I doubt Nike would care if few of the shoppers ever went to Hayward...

    Accepted! 😀
    We have enough 'nasty' with the pandemic already - we can all be resolved to not add to it.
    I sometimes fall short too . . . 😥

    Obviously, you don't get it, which is fine, but I'm wondering why you feel the need to be so nasty about it.
    Make KINDNESS, not nastiness, a resolution for the new year.

    Meanwhile....Nike is opening their new store in Eugene this month....and you can only guess who the promotional picture is....

    I was a huge fan of Pre ....but I've never seen any company or sport live so much in the past...

    Meanwhile, back at Old Hayward Field:


    Oregon accepting public proposals for remaining Hayward Field salvage materials

    Historic Hayward Field has been torn down and replaced, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone. Not all of it anyway.

    Before the old stadium was razed in June 2018, it was stripped clean of everything worth saving and then some.

    Much was put into Hayward Hall — a 4,000-square foot museum inside the $200 million new stadium — or sprinkled throughout the new Hayward Field itself or other spots around the University of Oregon campus.

    Plenty of pieces remain, however, and Oregon is ready to hand them over to the public — if the offer is right.

    Now through Dec. 1, Oregon is accepting proposals on how to best use the remaining salvaged materials in ways that are creative and for the public view.

    An advisory committee made up of representatives from several organizations with ties to Hayward Field, the University of Oregon, historic preservation and the Oregon track and field program will determine which proposal or proposals are accepted and where the materials will go.
