They won’t just sponsor anyone, but if you want to be one of the highest paid athletes then you need to be sponsored by Nike. I am trying to get them to come out with a line of Nursery clothes. You know, outfits to plant trees in or a skirt to work in the garden. Gardening is hot. It’s the most popular hobby in the world. I asked Nike to sponsor me on my garden shows but I was told they only sponsor athletes (except for Garth Brooks when he was actually popular and before that whole Chris Gains, crazy eyes thing). I know Carhart would sponsor me but the numbers are quite as good. I looked over the highest paid athletes and almost every one is Nike. I was just hoping for some free shirts or something , not necessarily a check. Oh well, I like Mizuno shoes better anyway.
