Rory McIlroy scores big with Nike deal

Northern Irish golf star Rory McIlroy has confirmed he's in a sponsorship deal with Nike, a pact that could net him between $200-250 million according to media reports.

Nike - who also have Tiger Woods on their books - confirmed their new "multi-year" arrangement with golf's rising superstar but refused to reveal any extra details.

    Since signing McIlroy, slumping sales have soared for the now popular "Ginger Kid" shoe. Look for the one with the freckle faced sole. Pale white with an orangey swoosh.

    Eh. I don't think Rory fits our image. Tiger looked serious as he drove-away in his brand new Buick. Rory looks like he borrowed his mom's car.

    Is there a dryer humor? I don't think so.
