It’s beginning to warm up here – still in the 20s, but sunny and nice – so during a break in committee I took the opportunity to cross the Mass Ave Bridge into Boston. I planned to run a quick errand on Newbury St to Niketown, to ask the resident experts what kind of cleats I should get for the upcoming ultimate frisbee / pickup football season.*
On my way back, however, I ended up on the opposite side of Mass Ave from my building, and so had to cross it.
But no more. For today I have free food. And there is much rejoicing.
* I was looking hard at the Nike Zoom Vapor Fly, but decided against it; not only is it insanely expensive (although also insanely shiny) but after talking to the folks at Niketown it sounds like they’re so low-cut that even the pros at the very least heavily tape their ankles before wearing them. So not the best recipe for someone with terrible knees and ankles like me. I’m presently leaning towards the well-supported (literally and figuratively) Super Speed 3/4th, which is apparently Adrian Peterson’s cleat of choice. While ADAP is clearly an inferior athlete when compared to me, I think I might condescend to these. If you have other strongly held opinions on what kind of cleats I should get, comment below or forever hold your peace.
