And you thought signing a 13 year old was nuts

Reebok has now signed up a 3 year old boy to promote their shoes.

http://markwalker.reebok.com/

Whats next, signing kids in the womb?

Apparently when this kid was a baby he was a great dribbler, get it, dribbler?

I just made that up, seriously.

But there goes that kids college playing eligibility, and he didnt even have a choice in it, kind of sad.

I wish he was my three year old?

Wonder how soon I can produce an adorable child to stuff in a pair of skates and market to Bauer?

I think it's a kind of a joke. Maybe Reebok saw Nike signing all these kids out of highschool, and decided to do this for ironic effect.

Or something

it is a joke, you're right... but chizip is also right... the kid is now lost all potential college eligability. even if this kid becomes a decent soccer player, not good enough to be professional, but good enough for say a d2 or d3 team, he can't play, because he's recieved money from a corporate sponsor based on "athletic ability." sad but true.
