Nike Snowboard Boots Fall/Winter 2008

It seems that Nike is set to release its Fall/Winter 2008 line of snow­board boots. They pro­mot­ed their new line via some toy boots (as in the pho­tos in this post). I won­der who Nike will get to join their team. For sure not Shaun White as he just inked a 10-year endorse­ment deal with Bur­ton ear­ly this year. That, and it’s just going to be weird see­ing him go with Nike as Bur­ton has been there since he was a lit­tle kid.

I have to give it to Nike though, they’ll prob­a­bly attract some share of the mar­ket as they are a well known brand. I just don’t know if they will attract those sea­son-rid­ers (such as myself) as I have been a brand-whore with Thir­tyT­wo in terms of snow­board boots. They are just damn com­fort­able and does what it needs to do to have me ride all day/night long.

Any­ways, time will tell if Nike’s snow­board­ing line will be a hit or miss1.

It’s Freaking Cold in the Winter

Cold and Winter—yes, they go togeth­er. Final­ly, the tem­per­a­ture up here in the Bay dropped to the 50s/40s this past week. Every­one is rejoic­ing by sport­ing their wool jack­ets and scarves. Now, you know its cold when peo­ple have their scarves on.

It was doo-doo last week though. Some­what rained for a cou­ple of days mid-week, but it’s all good. It’s all for the major cause. That is, major dumpage over at the Rock­ies. It’s about freak­ing time. I’m real­ly juiced about this. Going to be real­ly close to Tahoe. No more 10–13 hour road trip just to snow­board for 2 days. But it was still fun, and the com­pa­ny was great.

With cold weath­er, comes the snif­fles… and even­tu­al­ly, the Flu. We had this sign-up for a FREE flu-shot over at Mon­ster last week. I pro­cras­ti­nat­ed too much (more like, got lost doing work) that I for­got to sign-up for a time slot. Any­ways, I’ma try to grab a vouch­er and just do it anoth­er time.

Mean­while, there’s a cou­ple of peo­ple at work catch­ing that nasty virus already. So I’m just hop­ing that a few tablets of Air­borne would keep those boogers away. Not to men­tion, keep­ing warm and drink­ing a lots flu­id would sure­ly help out. I just don’t want to get sick. Why? It’s the Hol­i­days. It’s no fun being sick at this time, or any oth­er time in that instance.

But alas, we need to catch the flu at least once a year; even if it be a small dosage of it from the flu-shot. It’s just nature, and our immune sys­tem needs to be test­ed once and a while. But to just add some extra pro­tec­tion against it, I keep in mind most of D. Kei­th Robinson’s tips.

Some oth­er tips that might come handy dur­ing the Win­ter sea­son would be:

Oh yah, with Win­ter comes Sum­mer Movie Previews/Trailers. A cou­ple that I can’t wait to see are: The Da Vin­ci Code, Lady in the Water and X3. Man, the Holidays—it’s cold but it gives you that warm feel­ing inside.

From my mind to yours, stay warm and hap­py (as in Hol­i­days… “Hap­py” Holidays—HA!).
