          Officials at Jordan Brand, Michael Jordan's Nike
     division, say that the original Air Jordan sneakers which
     Jordan wore on Sunday may be released again, according to
     USA TODAY.  Erin Patton, Dir of the Jordan Brand: "While the
     future growth of the Jordan Brand will be fueled by new
     product introductions, we will seek opportunities to
     supplement our core product offerings with retro footwear
     and apparel to satisfy the tremendous global appeal for
     Michael's vintage products."  Patton said that no timetable
     is set for the re-release (USA TODAY, 3/10).  
          SILENT KNIGHT? In Chicago, Phil Rosenthal details a
     scene in the upcoming film, "The Big One," by Michael Moore. 
     Moore sits down and asks Nike Chair Phil Knight about the
     "12-year old workers" in Nike's overseas plants.  Rosenthal
     notes that Knight "corrects him pointedly" by replying,
     "Fourteen."  Rosenthal: "It's a proud moment for everyone"
     (Phil Rosenthal, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/10).
