OFF THE MAP: In Charlotte, Scott Fowler noted a Nike T-shirt that was available on the company's website proved to be "geographically challenged," as it included the NFL Panthers' logo, "but within the state of South Carolina." Nike since Friday "took down the shirt from the website." Fowler: "Someone working with or for Nike obviously isn't ... familiar with the geography of the Carolinas" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 7/13).
ON THE MAT: VARIETY's Marc Graser reported Doritos will "serve as the presenting sponsor" of WWE's "SummerSlam" on Aug. 18. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
