March… Start the madness at any point.

March is upon and so is the end of college basketball as we know it for the academic year but like all things it must end in the most encompassing way possible. It must be done up more than necessary and then shown that while flawed any other way of life is just useless. I am speaking of course of the NCAA Men’s College basketball tournament. This tournament has been around for 75 years and has redefined the way we all look at collegiate basketball. It gives teams a chance to show what they’re made of and a chance for history to be written anew.

St. John’s isn’t in the tournament this year (my college) but while I don’t really mind that it hurts the morale of the people a little. However there are 68 other teams waiting for their time to cut down the nets. My pick to win in it all has been a well thought out choice of randomness. But my choice to win in it all when there isn’t any clear cut number one is a number one though. Louisville is going to cut the nets down after they win in it all. However my sleeper pick would have to be Butler. They seem to stay around every year and have even won a tournament not too long ago. No matter what though this tournament is one for the ages.

Ratsa… what??? Rastaclat being featured this week.

Rastaclat is a bracelet company that operates in the many countries of the world. I went and ordered a common bracelet, nothing special. It took a month for it to get here. Now I’m writing this post to hate on Rastaclat. Quite the opposite, after a couple of weeks when the bracelet didn’t arrive I basically emailed the online help staff and they were more than willing to help me out and find the source of the issue. They not only helped me find my package but they sent out another one which currently on my wrist right now and getting rocked with all this sneaker. If you can whether sneakerhead or not Rastaclat is the way to go.

Iron Man is here… well his sneakers got here first.

I love customs. When someone who knows what their doing takes a sneaker and makes it something thawt no one has ever seen before. The crazier the custom, if done right can make the normal kick look like some thing that is truly sublime. This brings me to the pair of sneakers that I came across that the now king of basketball had done. They are called the Lebron X’s “IronMan”. This colorway is something that I have never seen before and therefore has granted my attention. If I were to get a pair of Lebrons X’s, which as I’ve said in a previous post are comfy and just looking kind of bulky. If you can follow the creator of this custom on instagram @Mache275, do it now and he does do orders for people not celebrity.

There’s baseball, and then there is world Baseball

There is baseball every time around the same time of the year and we go and maybe even take advantage of it because it’s always there. Then we have the world tournament that is held every three years that is the equivalent to the World Cup for soccer. I am speaking of the World Baseball Classic. In the this tournament they have 16 teams, from 16 nations and what it is, is four ¬†stages of play in which the teams are split into four pools or groups of teams that compete to be the best team in the world.¬†

Most people including me for a while would have thought that the U.S.A. would be the front runner every time that they compete. The fact of the matter is they are not and they have not actually won the competition other than the year of creation of the tournament. This tournament allows for people to view baseball in its purest form and allows the world to fall in love with the sport that millions around the world. This sport is the greatest ever for how it spreads throughout the world much like soccer has. Baseball, Rugby, Soccer are three greatest sports ever and no one can tell me otherwise.

Kevin Durant Smash!!!! Wait… that’s not right.

After much thought and thinking about the ascetic look of these I have made my choice to not get the Kevin Durant sneakers. This is not to say that I don’t like them, at a recent camp that I attended for rugby over the break I was given a pair to wear for use for the indoor drills. They feel amazing and they look even better. Even after the drills were over I kept them to wear for a pickup game of basketball. The only issue with these sneakers in any colorway is, at least for me is the fact that his last pair of sneakers, or the KD4’s, were just so good. If anyone is new to this sneaker game then get them.

This colorway though is subtle which is good for most but this is a great color for them. They have a deep green that is dulled by the matte finish. Then we have the rich green splatter effect on the bottom of the kick and is confirmed to glow in the dark. Of course KD has set the price of the kick to about $160 which is really a steal for any sneakerhead.
