KangaROOS

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC (January 2009) – Having leapt out of the blocks back in 1979, the KangaROOS brand is marking thirty years of original, athletic footwear with a commemorative collection of classic styles. The “30 Year” capsule collection is lead by the unmistakable “Combat” – The authentic ROOS running shoe that has triumphed time after time in marathons across the planet. Lovingly re-crafted to the same specifications as the originals, the shoes come in a lightweight nylon/suede upper, with a super comfortable EVA mid-sole, and of course the defining oversized external pocket. The Combat will be offered to men only for spring 09, in black & red; starting fall 2009 for women’s in fun bright colors. Lovers of basketball inspired shoes will love the ROOS sports heritage with the “Skywalker” women’s hi-top in a multicolor version. The Skywalker got its name as a result of its super lightweight thick-weaved canvas construction and it screams 80’s taste and design aesthetics. With a branded rubber cup sole, adjustable ankle strap and the much-vaunted external pocket this shoe was made to perform.

About KangaROOS…
KangaROOS started in 1979 when an American, Bob Gamm, struggled to find a place to keep his keys and change while out jogging. His problem led him to design trainers with small zippered pockets which he called KangaROOS. Now 30 years later, we invite you to celebrate KangaROOS’ incredible journey by grabbing a slice of history, in the ‘30 Year Collection’ – Available in February 2009.

How to Fatten Up

This makes me sad 🙁 Looks like it’s not the occassional Happy Meal or that random chocolate bar that ruins your diet plans. Check out these 2 sneaky fatty fatters:


The Worst Food in America of 2009: Baskin Robbins Large Chocolate Oreo Shake, 2,600 calories, 135 g fat … “more than a day’s worth of calories and three days worth of saturated fat, and, worst of all, usually takes less than 10 minutes to sip through a straw.”

Worst Sandwich of 2009: Quizno’s Tuna Melt (large), 2,090 calories, 175 g fat … “Puts tuna’s healthy reputation on the line. A large homemade sandwich would likely provide one-fourth of the calories.”

Puppy Fund!

As most of you know, I love my dog Jacob more than a fat kid loves cake.  I have been looking for a friend for him and I think I found her!  She is a 6 week old Shar Pei.  Shar Pei’s were once used at guard dogs in China and are known for their wrinkly faces, fierce loyalty and snobbery. Perfect!
So I have 2 weeks to come up with $750 to get her.. If you want to donate to the cause Please click donate ->!
