    Wiggy vs Bradfo Showdown at ISlide Headquarters

    Recently, we welcomed the WEEI team to ISlide Headquarters to settle a much-anticipated feud between on-air personalities Jermaine Wiggins and Rob Bradford.

    Wiggins, a former high school basketball State Champion (and NFL Superbowl XXXVI Champion) had what some would call an advantage with his 6'2, 280+ frame. But, never underestimate the heart and talent of a self-proclaimed shooter such as Bradford. After a warm-up (without injuries) the game was quickly underway with Mike Mutnansky and Rich Keefe on the call.

    Check out how it ended and all the fun happenings throughout the day below!

    Sliding into This Years All Star Game

    Sliding into This Years All Star Game

    The 68th annual NBA all star game is finally so close we can taste it! It tastes like sweat, hardwood floors, and basketball-leather. We would advise against tasting it, but it’s close enough that you could if you wanted to. That aside, this year’s game is shaping up to be an interesting one to be sure. With Giannis leading the East and Lebron leading the West, this will definitely be one heck of a matchup. People have been criticizing the new draft system for the all star game, saying that fans deserved more than just 50% of the vote. But if you really think about it, did any of us really want to see older players like Dwyane Wade paired up starting against rookies like Luka Doncic? It seems like the lineups have turned out at least somewhat evenly. Now that the starting five for each team have been released, we can take a real look at some of the 1-on-1 matchups we’re going to be seeing this year.

    The biggest news seems to be Giannis taking Lebron’s old captain position in the East. Some people are saying that Giannis may do better at “captaining” than Lebron did. Some are even saying that he may be ushering in a new generation of players and may have what it takes to really make this year’s NBA all star game a great show (unlike the somewhat ...tame... event that happened last year). Either way, we’ll just have to wait for Feb 17th to see how it plays out.

    Customizing Valentines Day

    Customizing Valentines Day

    The normal customs of Valentine’s day are obvious to most. Writing cards to your class, candy, and a dinner date with a movie have been the go-to’s for many Americans on February 14th.The fun of Valentine’s day has been stripped from the new generation in Boston schools with the ban of Valentine’s day parties. Teachers are asking parents to send their kids into school with origami instead of continuing the tradition of candy hearts and cards on valentine’s day. There is no doubt that Valentine’s day parties have lived in our childhood memories for years, but our culture is surely shifting away from these traditions. Skipping the flowers and chocolates and getting creative with Valentine’s day has also been on the rise. Valentine’s day has taken on a new meaning for most; one that Is more personal and less glued to tradition.

                Lately, Valentine’s day has been about making new memories, but just like ISlide stays rooted in its humble beginnings, my favorite memory of Valentine’s day will always triumph over those of the new age Valentine’s Day. My memory of opening cards from each of my elementary school classmates will always hold sentimental value to me when February rolls around. Whether it be taking a break during the day for candy, or awaiting a love letter from your crush, elementary school valentine’s day parties will always hold the most nostalgic and pure meaning for me.

                Cultural shifts surrounding Valentine’s day have most likely thrown many gift givers for a loop, leaving them wondering what the best gift to give would be. This year, customize your Valentine’s day with a hot pair of ISlides that your significant other will fall head over heels for, and never forget to stand in what you stand for!
