Stories from the last week

10 01 2011

I have four stories from the last week that I want to share:

First up is my SLAMonline evaluation of which cities are candidates to join the NBA, should an existing team move. It’s been floated by the media that the New Orleans Hornets will move, stemming from an opt-out clause they have with New Orleans Arena. Where could they move? It won’t be San Jose, as was cited in a news report earlier this week. I provide five options, two of which are fairly realistic.

I wrote a story for’s Playbook about the new adidas cleats C.J. Spiller and Eric Berry wore the final weekend of the NFL’s regular season. They’re called the adiZero 5-Star, and they’re apparently the lightest cleats ever made. You can find out what makes them so light by clicking here:

I stay with the uniform theme by outlining the changes in Auburn and Oregon’s uniforms for tomorrow’s national title matchup, for AOL Fanhouse. Under Armour provided a couple alterations for Auburn; Nike gave Oregon almost an entirely new look. Don’t be surprised if Oregon’s faster players look blurry when they run. You’ll see what I mean if you click here:

Finally, I offer five weight loss tips on AOL Health. The new year brings with it the motivation for many folks to shed some pounds. I spoke with a dietitian and a trainer to discover the methods they recommend for weight loss. Five of them right here:

And for you readers of Landscape Architecture Magazine, I have a short article in the January issue regarding cold-tolerant Bermuda grass. It’s used on football and baseball fields throughout the Midwest, Upper Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions. The magazine isn’t easy to find, but if you come across it, check it out.
