yesterday on the way home from work, I saw a forty-something man “crankin dat soulja boy” on the train platform as a group of colorfully dressed “cool kids” laughed. the man wore a pair of “Grant Hills”, made by Fila after Grant’s success with the 1996 Olympic Dream Team. in 2008.
the same pair I outgrew in the sixth grade. In 1996. i don’t think he was homeless. just stupid.
Anyway, it made me sad.
