July 13th, 2010 by Larry

The Dirty South Crunkball All-Stars won the Beat Brooklyn International Kickball Tournament last Saturday in Brooklyn, NY. What makes the victory even sweeter is how they are proudly wearing the shirts we designed for them last month. Can we attribute this win to the confidence they felt in their threads? Maybe?

Keep a look out, we might have some DSCA shirts available for sale in the Process online boutique in the coming weeks.

One of the best things to cool off with this summer is this mystery drink at The Local. No one I spoke to knows what it’s called, but they can all agree that it tastes amazing. Just ask for the drink that comes in a mason jar and pace yourself!

Nike 7ON Tournament

July 13th, 2010 by Larry

Troy Polamalu gives defensive advice to eager ears.

Nike 7ON is a two-day tournament event that pits teams made up of a quarterback, wide receiver and running back on offense against line backers and defensive backs on defense –battling on a 50-yard field for football supremacy.

This year’s participating teams predominately featured teams from the south, such as Miami Northwestern Senior High School - 2009 and 2010 winners (Miami), HB Plant High School (Tampa, Fla.), David. W. Butler High School (Mathews, N.C.), Martin High School (Arlington, Texas), Guyer High School (Denton, Texas), Glenville High School (Cleveland), and Gardena High School (Gardena, Calif.).

It’s unreal to see how high-school athletic performance has advanced in the last few years and I wouldn’t have realized this dynamic change without experiencing this action. Check out some photos from the 2 days of competition through the lens of Joe Martinez.

dsc_3793.jpg

As a continuation of our coverage on Nike SPARQ Training (where I skinned my knee in May), we spent a few days last week covering the SPARQ Rating National Championship in Beaverton, Oregon on Nike’s campus. This national competition placed high school football players with top SPARQ ratings against each other.

Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos quarterback, was there to host the event and to crown the nation’s “Top Football Player”. See more after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

EC’s Best & Worst of the World Cup

July 12th, 2010 by Larry

world_cup_best_and_worst.jpg

We decided to put together a list of our highlights and lowlights of the World Cup. Not all of these selections involve athleticism, rather the aesthetics or nuggets of hilarity and surprise that made the 2010 World Cup one to never forget (vuvuzelas aside, of course).

Best Kit:
England’s home kit is so clean, it’s an instant classic. There’s no denying a tailored, polo shirt that can be worn to any occasion without looking tacky.

Most Hilarious Kit:
Slovenia’s “Charlie Brown” getups made them difficult to take seriously the entire time. Not to mention their “euro-discotech bros” goal celebrations which are yet to be explained.

Ugliest Keeper Kit:
These Brown keeper uniforms by Puma are the biggest eyesores I’ve seen in a long time. Some people enjoy how they look, but I think they stink.

Best Team Crest:
A tie between the modernistic Netherlands crest and the Ivory Coast’s excellent blend of typography and character illustration.

Best Type:
I’ve got to hand it to type designer, Paul Barnes, for Puma’s letterforms used on the backs of both the Italy and Uruguay team kits. For more information about the creation of this typeset, click here.

Worst Type:
While the Italy and Uruguay kits were adorned with amazing letterforms, Puma’s kits for African countries had some of the most insipid renderings of faux-hand-drawn type. What’s the deal with this 1950′s American sign-painter letters? They are a total bite on Underware’s Bello Small Caps. For more information about the creation of this typeset, click here (same article as above).

Best Numerals:
The Netherlands. Hands-down. Their boxy numerals were inspired by Dutch canals and architecture. And they are sweet! More info on those kits here.

Best Campaign:
No question. Nike’s Write The Future. This campaign successfully crossed so many social boundaries and united footy fans everywhere. Unfortunately, none of the bros featured in the short film were able to write much of a future for themselves or their countries.

Worst Team Implosion:
France. France. France.

Best “In Yer Face”:
Although, one of my favorite moments in this year’s World Cup was Landon Donovan’s point-blank goal against Slovenia, I couldn’t deny how much pain Germany’s Per Mertesacker was in after getting owned by the Adidas Jabulani.

Worst Hair:
Algeria’s Boy Band steeze didn’t earn them any respect.

Best Headgear:
Argentina’s Giant-Maradona-head-adorning fans take the cake. Wow! I wouldn’t have wanted to sit behind those dudes.

Best USA Fan:
Bill Clinton. Here’s the former president fully decked-out in USA gear, while chilling with Mick Jagger and enjoying a post-game Budweiser with USA team captain, Carlos Bocanegra.

Best USA Sign:
Where’s the quarterback?

Scariest Fan:
This guy will haunt my dreams forever.

Sexist Fan:
Larissa Riquelme from Paraguay made all of our jaws drop.

Best Fake Fans:
Apparently North Korea’s fans were actually hired Chinese actors. What???

Person Most Resembling a Disney Character:
Diego Forlan should be followed around by optimistic, animated fauna.

Best Celebration:
Team USA’s dogpile made us all long for the upcoming NFL season.

EA Sports x Nike Trainer 1.2 “NCAA Football 11″

July 10th, 2010 by Larry

easports_x_niketrainer.jpg

To celebrate the release of their new video game, NCAA Football 11, EA Sports teamed up with Nike to create this very special release of the Trainer 1.2 for gamers and Gator fans everywhere. No word on a release date yet, but the game itself drops on July 13th. I’d expect the release of the kicks to coincide with that release date.

My favorite design detail is the faux-gator material used on the forefoot strap. We saw Tim Tebow rocking these yesterday at a the Sparq Training National Championship with green laces, so it’s safe to assume the pair will come boxed with alternate colored laces.
