More intelligent thinking

Not sure I can cope with any more this week:

The rappers Run DMC sang My Adidas to crowds of thousands waving their trainers in their air. Youngsters who want the latest sneakers endorsed by the Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James still have to shell out $150 (£75) a pair.

But parents can now breathe a huge sigh of relief with the arrival of the first celebrity-endorsed, high-style training shoes at a bargain basement price.

Stephon Marbury, a two-time National Basketball Association All-Star, who was raised in poverty on a housing estate in Coney Island, New York, has begun selling signature trainers for only $14.98 a pair.

Following a distinguished professional football career Niall Quinn was awarded a testimonial by Sunderland FC, the proceeds of which have traditionally been used to boost pension and retirement funds. However, Niall decided to donate this money to charity instead and set up the Niall Quinn Children's Charity prior to the game being played on 14 May 2002.
It raised more than a million.

He also paid for taxis from Bristol to Sunderland for a few Sunderland fans who got kicked off a Sleazyjet flight for being rowdy after they beat Cardiff.
