It is amazing how the Under Armour line of apparel has caught on with the school kids. I had a chance to attend grandfather's day recently and stood in the back of the room watching the kids sitting on the floor and singing. Initially, I thought all of the kids were in uniform, but when I looked more closely I was surprised to see that all the shirts bore the Under Armour logo. Also, at a recent soccer game many of the players' fathers also wore shirts with the Under Amour logo.

There isn't much about the problems created by the brand split, or lack thereof, that hasn't been said. But as preparing for Sunday's Hell in a Cell, there have been a lot of theories floating around, and one of the prevalent ones has left me shaking my head. It doesn't directly relate to tonight's Smackdown, but it highlights one of the problems of the not-really-split split brands. Dolph Ziggler's Money in the Bank contract allows him a World Heavyweight Championship match at the time of his choosing.
