Since it's NFL Sunday, I must mention that this Nike ad is, by far, my favorite commercial. Any kid who's ever slipped on a helmet knows what I'm talking about.

I especially love the brief shout-out to my alma mater. A school, by the way, with the nation's 11th-ranked college football team.

UPDATE: Isn't the Web a wonderful thing? I recognized the music from the ad as familiar - sounded a lot like Jay-Z's "Blueprint" from the "The Blueprint 2: The Gift and the Curse" album. Actually, it's the "The Ecstasy of Gold" from Ennio Morricone. Who knew? Enjoy.
