Team Nike versus Team Adidas

I've previously written about my hope that one day women wrestlers could get corporate sponsors who would pay to have their logos placed on their minimal outfits. http://cpcommentary.blogspot.com/2007/06/look-who-weve-got-our-hanes-on-now.html The most obvious candidates for such corporate sponsorship would be those businesses that already incorporate their logos on products that would naturally be used lady wrestlers. Namely, wrestling shoes and wrestling outfits. And given the extraordinary sums that are paid to professional athletes and college teams (principally, U.S. football and basketball) for the exclusive right to provide footwear, the principal athletic footwear companies are well versed in this form of sponsorship.
Of course, there are numerous obstacles to ever realizing this hope, almost all of which arise from society's general views on women wrestling. So any sponsorship would need to start with women wearing one piece outfits, and the matches would need to conform to rules that would best prevent the competition from being labelled as catfighting, or as being considered degrading to women.
Although wrestling is, by definition, an individual sport, competition takes place between teams as well (such as at the high school and college level). Therefore, I would suggest that the league have four principal shoe sponsors -- Adidas, Asics, Nike and Puma -- and each would outfit a different team. Using these photos, one could imagine what a match between Team Nike and Team Adidas would look like.

Keep in mind, Jennifer Love Hewitt is already sponsored by Hanes:

I'd Love (pun intended) to see her lace them up and take on "Lacey" Chabert (get it? Lacey underwear?).

Now down to the sponsorship itself and the rules and lady like behavior and degradation of women....blahhhhhh... we're taking fantasy here (at least I am). Anything goes... catfighting, maybe thw einner takes the losers shoes (or better yet swimsuit!). Hey... maybe Arena and Speedo could be brought into the mix!

I am starting to babble! Time for food and then sleep!

Point taken, as I might have gotten a little too PC when thinking about how to bridge the gulf from fantasy to reality (i.e., a bridge to nowhere). But, for whatever reason, I always keep a small hope that our interest will somehow edge its way into the mainstream without losing its appeal.

Thanks again for your insightful comments, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Speedo sponsoring a Japanese team in the very near future.

Best,

I like to keep it a little light... the fantasy part is the fun part to me.

Wow... that's the first time I have ever been called insightful. Spiteful yes... insightful no.

Keep up the excellent work, and let me know if there'sanything I can contribute to this wonderful blog other than my occasional... insight.

BBB4,

Your insights are more than welcomed and its too bad I can't figure out a way to put your comments on the Stephanie/Natasha matches right into my blog. They were substantially better than my blog!! I hope you enjoy the latest 3-part series on another rivalry that caught my interest, and please continue to provide comments and links to photos that interest you.

Best,

Jobber King
