Nike Listened To Me: They’ve Signed Brittney Griner

Last week I wrote this:

Okay, Nike. Word is that you are eager to endorse an openly gay athlete. You best get Ms. Griner on the phone.

And now this:

Lindsay Kagawa Colas, who represents Griner, confirmed to USA TODAY Sports that Griner signed a deal with Nike on Saturday.

“It’s big-time, let’s just say that,” Griner said of the deal.

(This news was actually announced last week but was buried in the article)
