    ORLANDO, Fla. A fight over the shoes Michael Jordan's son will wear at the University of Central Florida has cost the school any future sponsorship with adidas.

    "The University of Central Florida has chosen not to deliver on their contractual commitment to adidas," adidas spokeswoman Andrea Corso wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "As a result we have chosen not to continue our relationship with them moving forward."

    Freshman guard Marcus Jordan wore a pair of white Air Jordans during UCF's 84-65 win in an exhibition game against Saint Leo on Wednesday night, the Orlando Sentinel reported on its Web site. Jordan has said he will only wear his father's Nike Air Jordan shoes because they hold special meaning to his family.

    UCF is in the final year of a five-year contract with adidas that requires coaches and athletes to use the company's apparel and equipment.
    "We are disappointed to learn that adidas has chosen to discontinue its relationship with UCF Athletics," the school said in a statement Wednesday night released by spokesman Joe Hornstein. "Once we receive official notice we will be able to further respond."

    So UCF would rather have Jordan than abide by their contractual obligations.

    Wasn't there a time when sports was about the sport?
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    This situation ticks me off. It's nice that he's MJ's son but wouldn't you want to make your own name and not ride Daddy's coat tails? I feel bad for the man who is going to try and coach this idjut.

    I don't know, if he is really doing this for sentimental reasons and not just to make the family and Nike some money, I think Adidas is in the wrong here. Maybe they should reduce the payout to UCF or something, but dropping the whole sponsorship over this?

    Why does Jordan's kid believe the rules don't apply to him? What has he accomplished in life to be entitled to such an exemption. This is a selfish act on his part since the Adidas sponsorship obviously benefited the school and the less privileged kids that attend there.

    You would think being MJ's son and all that he'd be attending one of the basketball factories not a small school like this no?

    I wonder why he's attending this school and not one of the big basketball schools?

    Former major league baseball player (and suspected juicer) Sammy Sosa has been undergoing a "skin rejuvenation" process to make himself look less ethnic younger. Picture on the left is Sammy, post his process - picture on the right is Sammy from a couple of years ago:

    I always assumed most people rejuvenated the skin on their face...I didn't realize they did their neck and ears too.

    If Sammy's nose starts getting smaller I'm going to jump off of something really high.
