You’re reading this website, so you probably like shoes. A lot. You may even have what some would refer to as a collection. Perhaps it’s wide-ranging, going back a decade or two. Perhaps it’s more recent, including shoes from the 2010s and not much before. Regardless, you know what you probably don’t have, but would complete any accumulation of Nikes? A Phil Knight bobblehead.
Well, February 1 is the day, as every person in attendance at the University of Oregon basketball game that Saturday will receive the aforementioned Phil Knight bobblehead, part of an extended 76th birthday celebration for the Nike founder. In addition to the giveaway, Knight will be on hand to receive a birthday card e-signed by legions of folks on HappyBirthdayUnclePhil.com, a small thank you for all the money he’s contributed to the University of Oregon academics and athletics, OHSU cardiovasular and cancer institutes, and so many other initiatives in Oregon.
