    The Nike Time Capsule from... 20 years ago. Imagine the memories from... the early 90's.

    Coolest part of whole trip... Nolan Ryan Statue
  •  
    This statue is constructed entire of items found in Nolan's garage

    Every piece on this was taken from his garage

    When Nolan Ryan was on campus for the unveiling of the statue he cried... knew exactly where everything had come from

    Tribute to Tiger in the Tiger Woods building. His first hole in one

    I never knew the Masters had a trophy. But they do. Tiger has donated a trophy from each of his Major wins to Nike
  •  
    This was neat... it was a mural of Tiger made entirely of tees

    You can't really tell what it is until you look at it through a camera
