SO OVER YOU: In N.Y., David Knowles reported U.S. pole vaulter Brad Walker has "begun selling every single item of Nike clothing he owns on eBay after the company abruptly halted sponsorship negotiations with the athlete because he taped over their iconic swoosh logo during an international competition."
