The Tevez Saga

Carlos Tevez is back in the news this week after handing in his transfer request to Manchester City. The Argentine forward seems to be unhappy with life in Manchester and wants out immediately. Rumors have even surfaced that he may quit football all together if things don’t improve or change. Any team in the world could use a player like Tevez, I hope he ends up somewhere that he can shine because football needs a player like him.

TOMS Shoes Delivers One Millionth Free Pair

The ever-popular TOMS Shoes, and its founder/chief shoe-giver, Blake Mycoskie have delivered their one millionth pair of free shoes to a child in need. This is an incredible feat (no pun intended) for this company who took off out in California only recently. The idea is simple, buy a pair-give a pair. Myscoskie has really taken the idea of giving and philanthropy to a different level. What a terrific achievement and make sure to grab yourself a pair of TOMS! Also check out the article about this donation from Vanity Fair here.
