Reminisce Session: 1998 Air Ubiquitous Max.

Well, Well, Well....what do we have here....another trainer from the mid to late 90s that's damn near impossible to find. I have been looking for these FOREVER. Nike retroed these in 2001-02 as a footaction exclusive, but in white/navy blue. I miss those days when footaction used to get their own colorways and shit. Footlocker bought them in 2004 when they were going bankrupt and they haven't gotten shit like that since. I'm a lil' geeked so the word shit might pop up a few more times...but fuck it. This is my blog. I NEVER SEE THESE ON EBAY. Never. I cannot put into words how bad I want these. Where is the Retro? Where? SHIT.

Old Flames......And Good Friends

I'm about to get my laptop swept and I took some old pictures I have off of it. The uh... title says it all.

My first love Amber. <3 (1999-2001)

Let Them Boys Know That Them Broads Keep Chasin'....Hit The Club Throwback FUCKIN Walter Payton.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I guess I should call this yesterday since it's 2am, but today was ok. I hung out with my dad and he explained to me the difference between the two million different cowboy shows he watches on Encore westerns and AMC......LOL.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Then I met Zarinah downtown because she bought Cavs tickets. Yay. I wasn't too up about the game because it was against the Sacramento Kings....who haven't been good since the teams of Webber, Stojakovic, Bibby, Christie, Divac, and Bobby Jackson. It was a nice gesture though considering we've been beefing a bit lately. We ate at tower 230 at the top of Tower City and since it was happy hour, all the appetizers were 5 bucks and the beer was cheaper, but they never include shit that I drink....Heinekens, Corona, or Blue Moon.

So we get to the arena, and there are kids everywhere...AND I MEAN EVERYWHERE....then I realize that it's McFamily Night....something that the Cavaliers and McDonald's have where you can get 4 extra value meals, 4 tickets, and a parking pass for like $72 dollars. I honestly think I got up 50 or 60 times during the game.....smh...Then a girl at a concession stand asked me why I was wearing some Black and Purple Nikes with fatigues....and I ask "WHY DOES THAT MATTER TO YOU??!!"

I Guess the tone I used might've been taken by some as abrasive because she just looked at me and the rolled her eyes and looked away. LOL.

The game itself was good....the Cavs won with both LeBron James and Mo Williams getting triple doubles, and Mo scoring a career high 43 points.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sacramento held tough though with Kevin Martin....the Danny Granger of the western conference with 30+. LeBron had 23 points and 11 assists. After getting into it with Zarinah about some dumb shit, I went to watch the Lakers play the Charlotte Bobcats with my father........

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

They were close with Charlotte the whole way....going into to overtime with them twice. I knew chances were slim of them winning when Kobe fouled out right before the end of the first overtime. smh.

Kobe and Lamar arguing with the ref about the foul out.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Lakers are lacking toughness.....Derek Fisher and Kobe bring it every night....Bynum is getting back to where he was last year before his injury, but Odom and Gasol along with some of the Laker bench is too erratic for me sometimes.....some of those guys are absolutely useless if their shots aren't falling...cough...cough....Radmonovic....cough cough...Vujacic.... I'm not sure why Phil hasn't started starting Odom with Gasol and Bynum up front....what could happen???

And then yesterday Nikki kept calling me......

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I used to date her in 2005 and 2006 after me and my ex Danielle parted ways, but since we've dated, Nikki has decided that she's a lesbian and she moved to San Francisco this past year. I have nothing against lesbians, but if that's what you are, why the fuck do you wanna be bothered with me? You live 3,000 miles away....You've got a beautiful girlfriend that could get it...AND I MEAN GET IT....I guess she's coming back to visit her peoples but she wants to get together, but I'm not sure why??? I asked her and kinda let it be known that if the nature of us getting together wasn't in the same context that it was before, that it was no point. Am I wrong for feeling that way?

LOL. I can laugh about it now, but this girl did me so dirty that I actually related really well with Carl Thomas' "I wish", because I wish I never met her....AT ALL.

R.I.P Melanie.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Today was ok. I worked from 11-9pm....but my dad called me to tell me that my friend Melanie had passed away. She had cancer. I couldn't believe it believe it because she appeared to be getting better. Her dad is one of my dad's best friends. If there's any solace, at least she doesn't have to suffer anymore. The last time I saw her, she thanked me because I hooked her and her dad up with an 360, 2 wireless controllers, and GTA IV for 220 from when I was still at CD/Game Exchange. I never know what to say at times like this.

Rest In Peace.

And I look at myself at times like this like a little bitch. I say that because I've been in a funk the last 6 months or so because I've lost a lot of material things with some monatery value, but this girl was battling cancer....trying to hold on and I'm pouting because I can't buy as many shoes as I used to.....or ride around in the car I used to. Right now I'm feeling like I need to get about a 100 of those blue mean smh smiles they use on message boards like NT. She was a wonderful person, and I wish I could've gotten to know her more than I did. She was 26.

Air Force Ones I have In My Collection.....You Gotta Click On It Though, It's Only Showing 30, But I Really 32 Or 33.

DSR, Kobe & LeBron

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Like I said in my previous blog, I been listening to a lot of Old 04-05...
Forgot how much I liked this shit. The Lakers beat the Cavaliers which I'm very happy about since everyone here in Cleveland thinks that LeBron James is the second coming of MJ. Not that I don't like LeBron, because I think he's great for the city of Cleveland and especially Akron, but with that being said, in a basketball sense, I still feel the Lakers are a better team. Besides, I want the Cavs to do well (just not when they play the Lakers), but I can't be one of these frontrunner fans (that's all Cleveland is for the most part), that just because the Cavs are good now, I gotta jump on their dicks like everyone else. Since then, the Lakers have beaten the Clippers and the that was gonna be hard.

Oh, does anyone other that me remember when Kobe tried to rap being on Brian McKnight's remix of "You should be mine" and having a song with Tyra Banks?

Reminisce Session: 1996 Air Max Pro Streak.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Where In The FUCK is the retro for these???????

I got these for Christmas in 1996 when I was a sophmore in high school. I looooveeee these shoes, but I'm having a very difficult time trying to find them in good condition again. My pair from high school belong to my dad now and he does yard word in them so you can only imagine how fucked up they look.

I know that these wouldn't sell well if they retroed but I need these in the collection badly. If you have any in good worn condition 10.5 to 11.5, hell even a 12, get at me!!! The black pair and the TB's are welcome too I guess, but I really just want this colorway pictured. I'm also not interested in the turf version with no air bubble. Someone has to have these.....

It's The Fat Bastard!!! Get In My Belly!!!!

Sorry...I been listening to a lot of old DSR lately.

Today was a basic day....I went to work in the morning and it was dead for the most part until the UPS man brought our Nintendo Wii's!!! I sold 4 of them before I left. It was decent....Myself and my co-worker watched Eagle Eye.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It was a great movie and I wouldn't mind owning it. I later watched the Lakers and Spurs and I thought it was gonna be a sequel to last night where Kobe hit a three to pretty much bury the Rockets. Kobe hit the three, but at the very end Derek Fisher fouled Roger Mason with the Lakers up by two....Mason got an And 1.


Shit put a damper on the entire evening.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Well....hopefully the Lakers smarten up and sign Robert Horry back...he's a free agent and he's not doing anything else since the Spurs didn't keep him.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

To me, he could do for the Lakers what P.J. Brown and Sam Cassell did last year for the Celtics. Also, the Lakers D is a far cry of what it was during the Kobe-Shaquille Championships or the way Phil got the Bulls to play lock down defense in the 90's. I think a lot of that is because these Lakers don't have the court savvy vets to carry out Phil and Tex's defensive schemes. If you look at those Bulls and Lakers teams Phil coached in the past, that's one consistent thing....court savvy vets.

Memo to Gasol.....Tighten up that D!!!! PLEASE!!! Duncan had him looking like toast in the latter parts of the 4th quarter. I was starting to get flashbacks of the NBA finals when Garnett dunked on him in Boston.

Happy New Year.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yeah, I know I'm a little late, but happy new year. It's Sunday, and I really should be at church, but right now I seem to be dividing my time between NBA TV, and the internet. I've really gotta get back to going....I haven't been regularly since like April. Today, I'm waking up to a ridiculous amount of that means that certain shoes I thought about wearing this week will have to go back in their boxes until some of this melts.

I'm pumped about this year shoe wise as far as upcoming releases, and I can't remember the last time I felt this way....there are so many shoes coming out that I want to get. I have more than half of them as OG's, but certain ones are starting to show their Griffey 1's, Bordeaux 7's, and Total Max Uptempos to name a few. Anyone who knows me through shoes knows how much I love Bordeauxs, but there hasn't been any concrete proof that they're supposed to retro. I've also heard that they may bring back the French Blue and Black/Red 7's again as well....but my 2002 pair are still NDS of the Black/Red....I had the French Blues but sold them in 2006 for a nice amount, they were a lil' too snug for me to keep wearing. I'm also pumped for the Air Trainer SC in the OG knicks colorway, OG medicine ball Air Trainer 3, the cement Air Jordan 3 (I can never have enough pairs of them), and the safety orange 95's (even with the black suede mudguard)....those have been some shoes that have eluded me too many times on ebay.

Ashley (SolesistaAsh) and I were talking yesterday and I mentioned how guys beast over her on NT and other sites were both members of and she said that wasn't true and that I have a personal fan club on NT and I had to laugh. I did because there have been so many times where other people have worn the exact same shoe as me(sometimes in worst condition) and got plenty of compliments while I got nothing. I had to hit here with the "Nah, that's you", because on shoe forums, women are always going to get the most attention simply because they're women no matter what they're wearing.

I've had to leave eBay alone for awhile because I recently lost to very close auctions for some air max 95's in the Pool and Safety Orange colorways....Nike hasn't released either of these since 1998.

Ashley got to win some though....for a steal. Her showing them off.

Other than that though, I been working and watching as much basketball as humanly possible. On thursday a bunch of us Ex and a few still current CD/Game Exchange employees and managers got together at this bar on called the Fairmount in Cleveland Heights because Mike Simpson (another former CD/Game Exchange Co of the best managers I've ever worked with)is the bartender and you know what that means.....Drinks for the low.

I didn't get to take any real pics because I still haven't got a new USB for my camera and with that being said, I don't even know where it is. LOL. It was too dark in there for me to take any pics with my phone. Aric, Amy, Denise, Shantell, her cousin Shatoria, Myself, and Will all were in attendance.

Amy paid for everyone's food and drinks....I guess that was out of guilt.

I also saw this recently......the old job. I guess it's kind of fitting that the C is gone LOL.

Seeing everyone again was great. It did make me realize how much I miss being in Management. It's hard after being in charge for years to being just a regular employee but eh....hopefully that's just temporary.

The Cavs/Celtics game was awesome, but Everyone around here is pumped that that they're tied with the Lakers for the best record in the NBA. People think I'm a hater, but I always respond back with "It's a long season".

Zarinah's been acting jake the last couple of days, but what's new?
