NIKE IS WHAT?

This morning I was apparently in a Renaissancey mood, because I was listening to Messe de Nostre Dame by Guillaume de Machaut, the text of which is mostly in Latin.



I had just discovered this particular recording, and I was really getting into it--I love the wild, robust sound and the crazy French U's.  (It turns out that I am many kinds of nerd.)

As the train was almost to Salt Lake Central, I pulled my headphones out and started reconnecting with the world around me.   I looked up and saw a man wearing a Nike ® t-shirt that said:

NIKE EST.

1972

ATHLETICS

And I thought, Nike is what?

I guess you had to be there.
