Hype - iPad

My neighbor dropped by today to show my son something he picked up at the office.  I was in my bedroom at the time and I overheard them talking at the door.  I finally popped out to see what the clamor was about and there he is with an iPad in his hand.  He hadn't even opened the box yet.

As we all know, these things are not easy to come by.  With the legions of "Apple Lemmings" and greedy resellers buying out stock far and wide, you'd have to be extremely lucky or extremely wealthy to get one of your own.  If you're reading this, you're probably wondering which one my neighbor is.  The answer is: extremely lucky. 

He said his company had a hugely profitable month in March, so the company bought key personnel iPads as a thank you for their work.  How crazy is that?

21 Mercer - Stickball Tournament

Nike flexed their monetary might to put on a stickball tournament in from of the 21 Mercer Nike Sportswear store.  They shut the street down between Howard and Grand streets on the most beautiful day of 2010 so far.  It was up to 80 degrees at one point and the sights, sounds and smells of summer were in full effect. The people on the street grooved to the music selected by the events DJ, the legendary, Q-Tip.  For those who needed a drink, there was an open bar inside the store until 6 pm.

After the completion of the tournament, the store was briefly closed for cleanup/setup and reopened at 7:30 for a Q&A session. 

Championship Trophy

The championship trophy was handed out to the winning team just before sunset and all was right with the world on Mercer street.  I snapped a few more pics as I downed a root beer and headed back north for some much needed sleep.
