In parallel with Jordan’s championship path while wearing the iconic silhouette, Earl Thomas — one of the best defensive players in the league — will play in a player exclusive Air Jordan VII cleat as he aims for one of the most coveted experiences in sport: the repeat win.
Featuring an action green and navy upper, the Air Jordan VII cleat is certain to shine under the bright lights. A chrome plate nods to the ultimate prize, the championship trophy, and an updated Air Jordan VII graphic on the tongue and heel pays homage to the brand’s award-winning history.

Today, Reebok issued a bold challenge to the world to “Be More Human” with its new, fully-integrated marketing campaign, continuing the global fitness brand’s mission to change how people perceive and experience fitness. “Be More Human” goes beyond a campaign or a tagline; it’s a rally cry to live up to your full potential. This unique point of view is embodied in the brand’s new symbol, the Reebok Delta. The three sides represent the physical, mental and social change that comes through living a fitness lifestyle.
In our hyper technology-driven world, Reebok celebrates everyday people who have reconnected to a rugged physicality that allows them to live much bigger, fuller and less self-focused lives. For these individuals fitness isn’t just a physical activity – it’s something that enhances not only their body, but their entire life. Through fitness they become better parents, better leaders, better teachers, better partners and overall a better, stronger version of themselves.
“Reebok believes that by pushing ourselves to the brink and testing our limitations, we have the power to transform ourselves not only physically but also mentally and socially”, said Matt O’Toole, Reebok Brand President. “By adopting such a lifestyle, you find yourself in a community of people, joined together by a common purpose – to be better versions of themselves. We’re confident that when we push ourselves, we not only transform our bodies, we transform our entire lives.”
The brand film titled “Freak Show”, available at www.reebok.com/bemorehuman acknowledges that tough fitness is a lifestyle not always understood. Its methods are intense, demanding and require real commitment. “Freak Show” is a celebration of those who have chosen to be more than they thought they could be through fitness. It is a challenge to those yet to be converted to Be More Human.

Ric Browde is an author, music producer, and songwriter. He produced Poison’s multi-platinum debut album, “Look What the Cat Dragged In.” Browde co-wrote and co-produed Joan Jett’s return to commercial success with “Up Your Alley” in 1988. Browde has recorded thirty-six albums to date and sold over twenty-seven million records earning eight platinum and eleven gold records.
In the 1970s Browde produced several platinum albums for Ted Nugent even though they didn’t get along that well. Browde then made a career change with his satirical and somewhat autobiographical novel, “While I’m Dead…Feed the Dog” in 1999. Translated into several languages the book was also adapted into the 2012 film “Behaving Badly.” The film did not see release until 2014. Browde felt the movie adaptation was awful and has made fun of the movie in his blog, “While I’m Dead…Feed the Dog…the Blog,” which is the story behind the story behind the movie that has nothing to do with the story.
WWE announced today that pop-culture icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will be inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame at a ceremony to be held on Saturday, March 28 at SAP Center in San Jose, CA as part of WrestleMania Week.
Former Governor of California from 2003-2011 and the star of such blockbuster films as Predator, True Lies, Kindergarten Cop and the wildly successful Terminator franchise, Schwarzenegger is a longtime WWE fan dating back to the 1970s, appearing at many Monday Night Raw® and SmackDown® events through the years. A seven-time Mr. Olympia winner, he is the founder of the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival, the world’s largest annual sports weekend, which hosts 200,000 attendees and more than 18,000 of the world’s top athletes. He also appeared at the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony at Madison Square Garden, inducting his friend Bruno Sammartino. Most recently, Schwarzenegger guest starred on the March 24, 2014 episode of Monday Night Raw opposite WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan® and WWE Superstar The Miz®. Schwarzenegger’s decades-long health and fitness crusade is a perfect fit with WWE.
“We are honored to induct Arnold Schwarzenegger into the WWE Hall of Fame,” said WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque. “His larger-than-life on- and off-screen presence translated perfectly into the world of WWE, resulting in many memorable moments.”

Thomas Q. Jones is a captivating force on and off the field. While best known as an unstoppable running back that played twelve seasons in the NFL, Jones has turned his post-NFL focus to the world of acting and will next be featured in Season 3 of the BET smash-hit, “Being Mary Jane.”
He recently completed filming “Straight Outta Compton,” the feature film based on the lives and careers of the hip-hop group N.W.A. and has appeared in such acclaimed series as “Shameless” and “Comedy Bang Bang.”
Drafted 7th overall in the 2000 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals out of the University of Virginia, Jones went on to become one of the 25 leading rushers in NFL history, with more than 10,000 rushing yards. In addition to the Cardinals, he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, Chicago Bears and the Kansas City Chiefs, becoming AFC Rushing Leader, an NFC Champion and Pro-Bowl selection within his career.
He grew up in Big Stone Gap, VA alongside five sisters, one brother (former NFL running back, Julius Jones) and his coal-miner parents. Jones recently collaborated with his parents to publish Blessings from the Dust, a book inspired by the struggles the family endured coming from the poverty-stricken coal-mining camps of Virginia.
Jones received his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, in three years, from the University of Virginia, and established the Thomas Quinn Jones I Academic Scholarship, at his alma mater, among his other philanthropic endeavors. Committed to helping the NFL evolve, he has committed to donating his brain, for research upon death, to the Sports Legacy Institute which studies the link between sports and brain trauma. He is also working on a documentary, “The NFL: The Gift or the Curse?”
I had the great fortune to talk with Thomas about his many passions and outlook on life. From his playing days in the NFL, to acting, creating a business, and getting his MBA, Jones is always working. It is remarkable to see someone not only excel in one job that is hard to get into like the NFL, but then make it in the acting world.
