Named after the Greek goddess of victory, Nike Inc. has been nothing but victorious since it's launch as Blue Ribbon Sports in January of 1962. In 1971, the company branded itself with the name "Nike" and attached the legendary swoosh to its name. The now multi-billion dollar company is the global leader of athletic apparel.

Being a Nike Athlete is quite the job. You get amazing perks and discounts, create bonds with your fellow athletes (#NikeFam, #SwooshFam) and sell phenomenal products and services to the world. Here are 23 things that Nike athletes can relate to.

1. When you're opening and your manager isn't there yet.

Nike fun fact: When Nike signed Michael Jordan (pictured above, if you don't know who he is) of the Chicago Bulls in 1984, the NBA threatened to ban his new shoes, Air Jordan 1s, because they did not meet the "mostly white" standard of basketball shoes of the era.

Roshes are not the shoes to work out in, my friend.

9. That moment when you forgot you had an NTC activation, and you did a full body workout the night before.

Nope.

13. When you recommend several types of shoes to a consumer and they get the exact opposite.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

2164
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong."

You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain.
