Nike releasing Bo Jackson 'Broken Bats' kicks

When Nike brought back the Air Trainer SC in the orginial "Auburn" colorway last year, we compiled a list of the Top 10 Bo Backson sneakers of all time. It might be time to revise that list, as Nike is set to release a special "Broken Bats" edition of the Air Trainer SC on Friday.

The sneakers are an ode to Bo's days with the Royals and feature Kansas City's colors along with Jackson's No. 16 to go with wood print and an icy-clear outsole. But the feature which will probably draw people in the most has to be the tongue, which features an 8-bit Nintendo-style graphic of Bo snapping a bat over his knee. They'll cost $130.

This isn't the first time Bo's likeness has been featured in 8-bit form on Nikes. Back in 2009, Nike released the "Techmo Bo" Air Trainer SC IIs which paid homage to Jackson's gridiron days and a pair of "Royals" Blazer Mids which had Bo in his batting stance. Pretty cool idea by Nike.

When it comes to being a wrestling fan, Reds All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips isn't new to this, he's true to this. asked Phillips about his wrestling fandom prior to Cincinnati's 2-1 win over the Mets at Citi Field on Sunday afternoon, just a few hours before Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans.

Phillips, who went 2-for-4 on the afternoon, said that the Ultimate Warrior, Sting and Andre the Giant were among his early favorites growing up and that they helped mold him into a wrestling fan. He added that he was also a fan of Razor Ramon, the Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin. No mention Daniel Bryan, who beat Triple H in one match and then went on to deafeat Randy Orton and Batista in a triple-threat match to become WWE champion for the first time on Sunday night.

"Wrestling man, it really saved the world," Phillips said. "It really kept a lot of kids off the streets and stuff like that. They always wanted to be like those guys. nWo was one of my favorite things, Hulk Hogan and all those guys -- I looked up to them and I always wanted to be one."

Phillips said that he would always wrestle with his brothers and would make rings out of old mattresses and ropes.
