I wanted some cool new shoes to wear to the playoffs. I craved some solid red ones, but as I waited till this afternoon to look that was not to be. I did find a nice pair of white and black Adidas with red trim. I even splurged on a pair of red shoelaces to spiffy them up. (I'd post a picture, but camera batteries are dead and I'm running out of time.) As I was putting the laces through the very last holes I noticed that on the underside of the tongue it said HOUSTON ROCKETS! Now there are 29 other NBA teams - why why HOUSTON?
I'd feel guilty wearing them. I can't return them - they are from Joe's liquidation - besides they are Blazer colors. Can I pretend the label is underfoot and I'm trampling them? What can I do to make these Blazer shoes!!? Attack the label with my black marker? Cut out the label (and leave a fringe?) I see they are made in China - is this conspiracy of die hard Yao fans?
Alas, whatever shall I do?!
