Yesterday was another very long day, but a very successful one at that. I started my day trip in Detroit with an early "business-lunch" with my dude Kyle from Cash.Is.King Clothing. I haven't ever said anything about this before, but I guess I kinda have to now...I'll leave you only with this: Keep the look for a collabo with Cash.Is.King x T.WayCustoms - coming soon! Ha.
From there I made it to Uncle Wes' home to pick up LeBron's sneakers that Nike sent for the project. Then I spent some time with different people in the Novi mall at Footlocker and Champs just talking shoes and answering questions, etc. My next scheduled meeting was supposed to be in Detroit at Snyx Studio with my other guy, TWheel, but we weren't able to get on the same schedule so we had to sign a raincheck on that one unfortunately. Then I needed some WiFi but couldn't find it anywhere without having to pay $9.99 for a day-pass - that's just stupid! After accidentally setting off the Emergency Alarm at a Borders, I finally found a Free WiFi spot at Panera Bread. They on my fav-five now!
Near dinner time I was ready to head to the Palace for the Pistons/Cavs game...the game itself wasn't bad, definitely better than the one in Grand Rapids last week. While I was sitting underneath the basket by the Cavs bench, Uncle Wes (if you don't know who he is, Google: "Worldwide Wes") motioned to LeBron on the bench saying somethin like "this is the sneaker guy I gotchu with..." And it caught me a bit off guard, but Bron looked over real excited, like "Kid-LeBron" from his commercials excited, haha, and so we did the "Oh, what's good man" from like 50 feet away in the middle of the game, ha. I was happy to know LBJ is excited bout this project as well.
After the game I was able to get another pair of AF1s that Rip [Hamilton] wanted me to do for him, and then had to make the long hike back to the other side of the state. Nothing like a stop at McDonald's half-way through the trip...that was prolly the only thing that kept me awake at that point. Got back around 2am and just crashed in bed until the alarm woke me up a few hours later. Another day, another adventure for a dollar. Ha.
God bless & be easy!

P.S. Thanks to Adrienne for skipping her classes (which I never support - Stay In School, Kids!) and making the trip with me...she did laugh her head off & embarrass me even more when I set off the Fire Alarm, took a nap in Panera Bread while I worked, and tried taking pictures of LeBron on the bench WHILE he was trying to communicate to me, Haha. But she made the long day more bearable & didn't' let me sleep on the drive home. So thanks, hah.
