Is it Fate?

Football season is back and my Cleveland Browns put up wonderful numbers against the defending Super Bowl Champions, the New York Giants! But what comes with great football, are great commercials. This next spot, part of the Leave Nothing Nike campaign, just recently came out from Wieden+Kennedy. This catches the essence of a football player's journey to becoming a professional player. You feel the passion in the commercial and flashback through your own glory moments. Using two all stars – LaDainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu – this ad follows these two to their inevitable paths from childhood to the impact of helmet to helmet contact in prime time football. It's fate.

Soundtrack is a rendition of “L’estasi Dell’oro”, (The Ecstasy of Gold), by Ennio Morricone, written for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

And because it's Nike, I'm posting the original adrenaline pumping Leave Nothing commercial featuring football stars Stephen Jackson and Shawne Merriman.

And this just in...Prices for Super Bowl tickets!
