It’s actually been a while since Friday Fun shared some NFL goodness, but New York Giants WR, Odell Beckham, Jr. sure brought it back nicely this past weekend. On Sunday, the wide receiver donned a unique and impressive pair of cleats during the Giants’ game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Already sporting several items pink in the month of October, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NFL players league-wide have many splashes of the color throughout their uniforms. Beckham went just a bit further, showing his love for our favorite pink puffball character, Kirby.
Interestingly, we know that Nintendo has several licensing deals with their IP, but as far as I am aware, the only major shoe deal is with Vans. These Nike cleats, however, are really very cool, and it’s great to see that Kirby’s abilities may well have sucked the life force back into Beckham’s season. The wide receiver had an astounding career-high 222-yards receiving, and 2 touchdowns, one of which was the game-winning touchdown catch of 75 yards.
Going through and watching the highlights for his game, his biggest plays seemed to come in the second half of the game, during which time, Odell had changed into the Kirby cleats!
Do you like when players who express their individuality show their love of Nintendo? Do you think Kirby had any effect of Beckham’s gameplay in the second half of Sunday’s game? Do you think we will see more Nintendo cleats from Beckham or any other players this season?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
