    Been watching the US Open Grand Slam tennis tournament. Grand Slam means you have to win the match by winning 3 out of 5 sets and there have been people who have had to retire because of the heat. Temp up near 100 F - when the players had a chance to sit between sets or games they had knotted towels filled with ice cubes to put around their necks. Just way too hot for some of the players.

    I guess Federer being knocked out of the next round was a surprise, he apparently couldn't breathe properly In the humid atmosphere. I didn't watch his match. Just hope he's not ill - he maybe should consider retiring as he's 37 which is getting up there for a tennis player.

    Looks like Nike have scored a tremendous own goal over the Colin Kaepernick saga.
    Nothing like losing millions before pulling their advert in support of that poor oppressed football player
    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    Deadly serious, he and others like him have chosen the wrong platform to show their "alleged" feelings.
    Turns out he's been getting his sponsorship money since he finished playing

    Disagree regarding Kaepernick's platform, but that leads us into discussions that I'm not interested in pursuing - hopefully we can just agree to disagree.

    Nike will be just fine. They know their target audience better than anyone and are very astute marketers.
