Is Your Better Better?

Have you seen those commercials where athletes are cleverly trash-talking about their skills with that catchy tune (List of Demands by Saul Williams)? You know, there’s LaDainian Tomlinson, Diana Taurasi, and many others? Now there is a promotion out that is looking for you to show why your better is better. Why am I telling you this? I know there are some of you out there that occasionally stop by here that have some amazing athletic skills. Go here and check out the rules for this contest. All you have to do is upload a video of your better, spread it around the internet, and become one of the top 100 entries. The contest has a grand prize, prize for most viral, and prize for most creative video. Check it out!

Speaking of better, the Los Angeles Lakers almost forgot where their better game was last night against the Spurs. Down as much as 20 points in the 3rd quarter, they came back to take game one in the Western Conference Finals 89-85. Game two is in Los Angeles on Friday.

In case you missed it, the Champions League Final was amazing! Talk about bringing the better! With the score tied 1-1 at the end of extra time, the match against Manchester United and Chelsea would be decided by penalty kicks. The first set looked bleak for Man U when Cristiano Ronaldo’s attempt was blocked. The team got a second shot when the last attempt by Chelsea was also blocked and a fresh round of kicks was started. In that second round, Chelsea’s second miss sealed the deal for Man U.

Ah yes, the commercial where Nike demands reparations.

I love that song, but wow. Inappropriate use of revolutionary music in advertising.
