1964 World Trade Fair

OK, I admit it, I’m feeling the Olympic spirit and I’ve been watching a lot of TV, therefore, commercials. And although most of them are lame and boring (yes, I’m talking to you GM, BP and rest), I found this gem from Stella Artois last night and I had to share it. Everything, from the retro film, voice-over, set and styling to the awesome robo-props and music works great for this spot. Check it out…

Team USA’s Nike 21st C. Windrunner V

TheeBlog-US_team_Nike I don’t know about you but I honestly think I’ve watched more TV these past two weeks than in the past three months. And I’m sure you know what I am talking about if you love sports as much as I do :) Although these games started a little slow for the US Team, things have come to ‘normal’ and we’ve enjoyed our fare share of medal ceremonies. Speaking of ceremonies, I know there’s been a lot of speculation about the US Team’s Nike ceremonial attire, specially that gray windbreaker jacket. Some of us found it refreshing and elegant but some people found it “non-American” and even insulting since it didn’t include huge stars and stripes or a bold Red, White and Blue pattern.

Go 2012

TheeBlog-Go2012 Today marks the fourth day of competition at the London Olympics and although it has been a very disappointing tournament so far for team USA, like most of you, I have been glued to the TV and internet, watching as many events and races as I possibly can (and yes, realizing even more how out of shape I am). But let’s face it, with so much going on it is hard to keep track of what to watch and when. That’s why today I want to introduce you to a cool and nicely designed app called Go 2012 which not only looks great but also features all sports schedules, London news, live updated medal table, etc. Check it out and get it at www.go2012app.com

Puma + Cedella Marley + Jamaica

TheeBlog-Jamaica_CedellaMarley The first post of July is for you sports and fashion lovers! The 2012 London Olympics are almost here and if you are a sports freak like me, you are counting the days to see some of the best athletes in the planet battle each other not only for gold medals but to beat world records. One of the many highlights of these events is the opening ceremony, featuring a friendly and up-close look at the numerous teams participating, and a treat for fashionistas as many of the delegations parade in custom, and sometimes label-collabs outfits and uniforms. I have not seen any of the other teams yet, but I can honestly say that I am loving the new Puma+Jamaica collection designed by none other than Cedella Marley. (Yup, Bob Marley’s daughter) Puma asked Cedella to design the outfits the Jamaican Olympic team would wear this summer – GENIUS! – and Marley did not disappoint!
