Visit to Nike Campus

I recently visited the Nike campus and you can definitely understand why any sports player would want to be with them. Everything is about achievement in sports. The campus is a monument to the great achievements of the sports world and the people who made it happen. Pete Sampras and John McEnroe represent tennis in that they both have their own buildings named after them. Other buildings are the Mia Hamm building, the Tiger Woods building, and the Lance Armstrong building. Clearly buildings are reserved for those who define an era in their sport. I just know all Serena needs is a visit back to the campus to get back in shape, because surely she wants a building. Nike execs are a little worried about the merger of Addidas and Reebok and I'll bet Venus is holding out for a contract with the merged entity. They surely have their work cut out for them to capture a similar sense of lore as the Nike campus exemplifies.

I agree. Venus is waiting until Adidasbok is up and stable to get a good contract with them. My girl needs some new threads and kicks next year. I would love to see her in great clothes winning the Australian Open.

Its in Beaverton, Oregon. And it is just huge complex set on 175,000 acres; I guess nonNike employees can visit, but I am not sure that it generally open to the public.

Nike is the truth. I heard about their Nike Employee's Store and how cool that is. The Nike Employee store isn't open to the public.

That's very old news. Adidas is buying Reebok for 3.75 billion dollars, but Reebok's brand will still be available.
