Sports News You May Have Missed: Friday, March 15

March 15, 2013

“News You May Have Missed” is a periodic roundup highlighting the some of the latest, but not necessarily the greatest, happenings in sports.

“These shoes were made for talkin’, and that’s just what they’ll do…” Yes, seriously, Google and adidas have made a shoe that speaks to its wearer. And apparently when shoes talk, they have a faint British accent

Things we learned this week from Bill Belichick’s foray onto Twitter via his girlfriend’s account: 1) He loves Junior Mints, 2) He listens to Bon Jovi, 3) He’s just as lively on social media as he is in post-game interviews…

Want a sneak peek at what the next NCAA Football game will be like? Ask an incoming West Virginia Mountaineer. WVU recently met with EA Sports to talk about the game’s recruiting mode and how to make it more lifelike…

Also in video game news, Madden 25 opened up voting for its cover athlete this week…

IMPORTANT: Gatorade baths are a fun way to celebrate wins in outdoor sports. Indoors they can go wrong pretty fast, as this botched basketball celebration shows

Footwear for a good cause: Nike teamed up with the Kay Yow Cancer fund to release a pink-accented KD5, which honors Kevin Durant’s Aunt Pearl, who battled cancer…

Will lighter helmets lower concussion rates in football? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell thinks they might…

J.J. Watt can sack quarterbacks like it’s his job (which helps, because it is his job). But can he hit the long ball? We’ll soon find out.

What we’re listening to: “Young Blood” by The Naked and Famous

What we’re watching: Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope catching eggs thrown from atop a stadium.

What we won’t be doing this weekend: Reading awkward N.C. State recruiting letters.
