A tip of the hat to new-ish SBN site Canal Street Chronicles, dedicated to the New Orleans Saints, for the video below...

As some of you may know, in addition to college football I am a fan of European soccer, so this Adidas marketing video of Reggie Bush meeting David Beckham is entertaining on many levels...

If I was being uncharitable, I would say it's a meeting of two one-trick-ponies who happen to be very marketable, but that would entirely miss the point of how very good they are at what they do. I should dislike Reggie for putting USC's record book at risk, but I got too much joy from his exploits on the field for that. I should dislike Becks for keeping England in tournaments and playing for Real Madrid, but underneath the marketing razzle dazzle he's a genuinely nice guy who has worked his ass off to get to where he is.

/ rant.
