Summer Beaters

IMG_2495

There are certain days in the Summer when you simply are not allowed to have plans. You roll out of bed sometime around 11:48 to the sound of your cell phone ringing underneath your pillow. You probably fell asleep in the same clothes that you were wearing last night, and most likely you were planning on sleeping off whatever night time antics occurred the previous evening. The cell phone has very different plans however, and is absolutely relentless in requesting that you open your eyes.

When you finally get around to finding the phone and picking up the call, without doubt it is one of your close friends who, unlike you, is already wide awake and in front of your house to pick you up to head down to the beach for the rest of the day. Because it is far too early in the morning to formulate any sort of effective argument as to why you can’t go you roll out of bed, you throw some water on the face, brush your teeth and proceed with going downstairs, grabbing a poptart, throwing on your summer shoes and jumping into the car.

The reason for my narrative (Besides the fact that I just like writing a whole bunch with a generally uneeded amount of extravagance and fluff.) is to speak on the idea of the “summer beaters.”

 

When it comes to the Summer schedule there has to be a shoe/shoes that get worn absolutely every single day regardless of the destinanation and without a second thought. The shoes will usually start off the Summer in great condition: brilliant color, fresh laces. Than by the end of the season they will most likely be fully destroyed with holes, rips, tears, stains, and exsisting in a completely different color than the one they started as. It’s all part of the beautiful process that only comes about in summer…i guess.

I went with 2 pairs of Jordans this year. A pair of Jordan 3 “True Blues” and a pair of Jordan 9 “playoffs”
and in a way I feel kind of bad, They both were completely unaware the amount of pavement, skateboard grip tape, grass, sand, and utter life that they are about to come into contact with the last couple months.

I Love this Game…

Oh boy, oh boy…Ladies and gentlemen-the talking of proverbial “smack” has begun.

 
From all corners of the world and from all realms of existence people are coming out of the woodwork to tell me about how their teams (mostly Laker fans) would destroy my (Clippers) in the NBA playoffs. From emails, to texts, to IM’s, even by assault with deadly Facebook-account I am being attacked for this months game time antics. Well all I can say my good friends is that I hope you’re teams are prepared in the most proper way possible. My Clippers are coming out in the most tip top Weasley Snipes form of competition and there is no Woody Harrleson to stand in the way of the Clips quest to reign supreme…Ahh I love the NBA. If you didn’t watch last nights Clipper glorious 27 point comeback win against the Grizzlies. here’s what you missed…

(Since i’m a dickhead please bear with me and play this song while you’re watching the Clipper video below)

You gotta love the NBA!

Let me finish by saying that I, Negatron am NOT a bandwagon fan! I’ve been a fan since 2000. Back when they had Lamar Odom, Darius Miles, Quinten Richardson, Olowakandi, Correy Maggette, and Eric Piatkowski. Oh and let’s not forget that back stabber Elton Brand.
