Nike buys Umbro for over half a billion!!



In a move that will probably interest my man Mudd, my boss Tony and DJ Rig, among others, it appears that Nike is buying UMBRO for $580 million.
I got the info over at Kix-files go over there for the full article. I can't think of a single kid who played soccer that didn't have or want a pair of Umbro shorts. The coolest pro teams all wore 'em. Nike is just takin' over everything I guess.
