From Windows Team Blog,

On Wednesday August 7th at the West Los Angeles Best Buy Store, Major League Soccer will be on hand to kick off the first Windows Store at a major consumer location. MLS players and coaches will help show how to stay fit for back-to-school – from soccer drills on a full-size field in the parking lot to healthy food tips to the latest fitness and nutrition apps for Windows 8 like Daily Workouts, Fitbit, Endomondo, MyPlate Calorie Tracker, BallStrike and MLS MatchDay.

The first 200 customers to demo a Windows 8 device in the Windows Store Only at Best Buy will receive a wristband for a chance to meet Clint Mathis, former U.S. Men’s National Team and LA Galaxy player and Mauricio Cienfuegos, former El Salvador Men’s National Team player and LA Galaxy player, along with two tickets to an upcoming LA Galaxy game and a free signed soccer ball.

    I really want to see Microsoft Stores opening globally, unlike Apple, Microsoft actually sells cool innovative stuff people actually want and improve their lives, but Microsoft just gets really bad media attention.
