JJ Watt’s ‘MegaWatt’ shoes to be released June 1

JJ Watt MegaWatt shoes

JJ Watt has only been in the NFL for two seasons, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is already one of the most popular players in the league. He’s even getting his own shoe.

Last week, the Houston Texans star defensive lineman tweeted a photo of his Nike “MegaWatt” shoes and said they were “coming soon.” On Thursday, Watt indicated the shoes were coming on June 1.

There has already been a huge response from fans clamoring to get a pair of the kicks. As the Houston Chronicle pointed out, even actress Danielle Fishel aka Topanga Lawrence wants a pair:

Between wearing a Craig Biggio throwback jersey and posing with Yao Ming, Watt has endeared himself to Houston fans. He is great at fan relations and proposed to a young girl who wanted to marry him. As beloved as he is in the city, I have no doubt the shoes will be a hot item.

Michael Jordan has an awesome golf cart

Michael Jordan golf cart

Michael Jordan has one of the sweetest golf carts this side of Bubba Watson’s hovercraft. And why wouldn’t he? He’s Michael Jordan, the famous No. 23, creator of the Jordan Brand and the greatest basketball player ever. Of course he’s going to have the finest luxury items possible.

This golf cart, which was on display at the Michael Jordan Golf Classic last week, comes to us via Busted Coverage. The cart is in light blue and white to match the colors of MJ’s alma mater North Carolina. There a Jumpman logo on the front, custom Tar Heel blue and white seats with “MJ” embroidered on the back rest, a custom holder in the middle of the front seat, and speakers in the front. It truly is a thing of beauty.

More pictures of the cart and his golf bag below:

Phoenix Coyotes have a championship belt they give to player of the game (Picture)

Coyotes-championship-belt

The Phoenix Coyotes have some professional wrestling fans in their locker room, which is why they have decided to incorporate the WWE into their game day festivities. According to Puck Daddy, goalie Jason LaBarbera sent defenseman Keith Yandle, who is also a huge wrestling fan, a photo of his replica title belt in 2011. That put the wheels in motion for a present-day tradition.

The photo you see above shows the championship belt the Coyotes’ Player of the Game now has the honor of wearing each the team wins. Mikkel Boedker, who scored two goals in a win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night, was the first recipient of the new customized piece of swag. The best part about it is that the player who currently “holds the title” has to drape it over his shoulder while talking to the media.

Mike Woodson has a fantastic shirt with his own face on it (Picture)

Mike-Woodson-shirt

By most accounts, New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson seems like a fairly humble guy. And when humble people wear t-shirts with their own face on them, it can be pretty damn funny. That’s why Woodson pulls off the look you see above to perfection.

On Tuesday, Chris Herring of the Wall Street Journal shared a photo of Woodson at Knicks practice wearing a shirt with his own face and signature goatee on it. When Herring asked him about the shirt, Woodson told him that the face on the shirt kind of looked like Herring’s if only he grew some thicker facial hair.

According to the MSG Network’s Alan Hahn, the shirts are the uniforms New York’s assistant coaches will be wearing on this week’s edition of “The Mike Woodson Show,” which is a behind-the-scenes look at Woodson’s life as a coach at Madison Square Garden. If several people wearing a shirt with Woodson’s face on it sounds like it would be your thing, you best be tuning in.

Ray Lewis, Ravens wearing custom Super Bowl cleats (Pictures)

Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens will be wearing custom cleats when they take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday. As you can see from the photo above, some players will be wearing flashy-looking gold cleats. Others will be wearing ones that are mostly purple.

Lewis, of course, will be wearing more than just fancy colors. Near the toe of his footwear is a screen print that reads “Psalms 91,” which is a bible reference that Lewis called attention to with his undershirt after the Ravens first-round playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts.

No 49ers player was more swagged out for his press conference than Michael Crabtree

Now that Michael Crabtree is finally living up to his billing as a No. 1 receiver, he’s starting to truly let some of his swagger show. The 49ers receiver showed up to his postgame news conference on Saturday with sunglasses on, and he did the same for his press conference on Monday.

Look at Crab, looking like a young Deion Sanders on stage with his sunglasses and chain hanging. He’s starting to get all Prime Time on us. Next thing you know he’ll be loaded up on the gold jewelry and starring in Nike commercials. Let’s just hope that his strong play doesn’t lead to the diva personality he allegedly had in college coming out.

Crabtree did had 9 catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers on Saturday. He finished with the regular season with 85 catches for 1,105 yards and 9 touchdowns — all career-high marks. In truth, we’re actually pleased to see him playing so well. We always believed he was a No. 1 receiver and felt a combination of foot/toe injuries and shaky quarterback play prevented him from achieving that status. He’s finally reaching it.

As long as Crab doesn’t go all Carmelo Anthony M. Bison on us, we’ll give him a pass for wearing his sunglasses indoors.

The Adirondack Phantoms have tuxedo jerseys … and they’re spectacular (Picture)

The Adirondack Phantoms, the AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, may have lost to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in a shootout on Monday night, but they closed out 2012 in style. The Phantoms decided to go tuxedo jersey for their New Year’s Eve game. We didn’t even know going tuxedo jersey was a thing, but they went there.

Adirondack-Phantoms-tuxedo-jersey

I have to say, I’m surprised Bridgeport didn’t just shake their opponents’ hands and call it a night once the Phantoms took the ice rocking these bad boys. When the team you’re playing is wearing tuxedo jerseys you know you’re getting out-classed — no matter what the final score says.

In a sports world where we see hideous uniforms like this, tuxedo jerseys are a breath of fresh air.
