Adidas teams up with NFL rookie Sammy Watkins for new Springblade Drive
With the NFL pre-season underway, the excitement is building for another epic season, so adidas and super rookie Sammy Watkins teamed up for the spectacular new Springblade Drive! We might not move like Sammy Watkins, but after testing the new kicks, it’s apparent the Springblade outsole of these men’s running shoe gives you incredible launch and power for a ride that must be felt to be believed.
Ultra-light polymer blades are tuned and angled to absorb shock and propel you forward with every step, while the simplified silhouette features a 360-degree engineered air mesh upper and a suede tongue and collar for additional breathability, comfort and premium details. Inspired by the Energy Boost 2, the one-piece heel to mid-fit cage provides extra stability. The shoe’s 16 individually tuned blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy. For the first time, the blades come to life through vibrant color application.
Style is important, but when you combine style and performance in the new Sammy Watkins Springblade, you know you have a winner. The Springblade Drive is now available for $180 at adidas.com, adidas Sport Performance stores and select retailers nationwide in five different colorways for men: Solar Red/Black/Solar Red, Black/Onix/Silver Metallic, Blue Beauty/Black/Solar Gold, White/Black/White, and Black/Solar Red/Black.

Purchasing a Bed: Three Effective Tips
A bed is an essential item that provides the comfort that will allow you to achieve sound sleep and therefore become refreshed and revitalised for each new day. A lumpy, sagging or otherwise uncomfortable mattress can lead to lethargy, stiffness or aches and pains. Investing on the right beds is a lifesaver for individuals who struggle with getting sound sleep.
1. Take Measurements
You may be dreaming of a super-king, or even a standard double if you currently have a smaller size, but be sure to measure up your bedroom, taking into account the location of windows and doors. Consider the walking space around it and other furniture. Devise a room plan, keeping it accessible and uncluttered by following several guidelines in the Internet. Then measure doorways and halls through which the new furniture will have to be taken. These steps will ensure the size you want will not only fit in the room, but will also be able to be moved through the house.

Stanley Portable Power Inverter
In a world filled with gadgets, access to power becomes critical. For stuff like phones it’s pretty easy as you often have a car charger to bail you out, but that usually doesn’t work for laptops and other larger gadgets.
Now with the Stanley 140 Watt Portable Power Inverter you can plug the power cord into a vehicle’s 12 Volt DC port (cigarette lighter) and enjoy the convenience of household outlets and a USB port. Now you have power for your laptop or other large gadgets like DVD players and gaming devices. If you’re on the road a lot for work or play this can be an incredibly useful tool to have at your disposal. I probably won’t use it often but I’m putting it in my trunk so I always have it as an option. Check it out.
Stock Yards Steaks: A gift basket that even a man could love
1-800-Baskets.com has become the go-to online store for quick and dependable gift ideas, partnering with companies like Cheryl’s and The Popcorn Factory to bring their goods to a larger audience. But while the site contains the usual items tailored for special occasions – such as flowers, fruit bouquets and tasty treats – its newest addition will have even the most macho men excited about the prospect of receiving a gift basket, although technically it comes in a Styrofoam ice box. We’re talking about meat, and not some dainty summer sausage that’s served with crackers and cheese, but USDA Prime and Choice steaks, pork, lamb and veal from Stock Yards, who have been providing quality meat to some of America’s finest restaurants for over 100 years.
Stock Yards isn’t the first company to offer meat delivery direct to your home, but the fact that they’ve joined the 1-800-Baskets family shows that they mean business about expanding their brand. And with a variety of products available – from steak burgers and BBQ pork ribs, to seafood and steaks – there’s something for just about everyone, provided they fancy themselves a carnivore.
We recently had the chance to sample the King & Queens Collection, and while we weren’t too impressed with the 10 oz. Center Cut New York Strip steaks that were included (more on that below), the 6 oz. Complete Trim Filet Mignon steaks came off the grill tasting almost as good as what you’d get at a major steakhouse. We prepared the filet mignon a little rarer than the New York strip after discovering that the steaks had a tendency to toughen up when served at a medium-well doneness, and combined with the provided Epicure seasoning, they were the best home-cooked steaks we’ve ever had – tender and flavorful with a melt-in-your-mouth center.
Whether or not they’re worth the price depends on how much you like steak. The King & Queens Steak Collection costs $84.95 (plus a shipping charge that varies between $4.99 and $12.99 depending on the day you want them delivered), which averages out to about $23 a steak. That’s a lot more than you’d pay at a typical restaurant, and not much less than at a quality steakhouse, especially when you consider that you still have to prepare the food yourself. But for anyone that loves to grill out or just wants a special meal in the convenience of their home every now and again, Stock Yards is a great way to treat yourself or a friend, regardless of the occasion.
