These Are Some Good Shoes!

I’m not a huge “Starbury” fan, but this is commendable:

That smile Stephon Marbury said earlier this summer couldn’t be taken off his face is still there, beaming brightly and broadly yesterday as his new sneaker and clothing line were unveiled at the Manhattan Steve & Barry’s store.

“It’s been the best summer of my life,” he said.

This was Marbury, warm and engaging and miles away from the frustrated, often petulant personality that runs the point for the embattled Knicks. In this form, he is a multimillionaire athlete with a genuine concern for the very people the Coney Island native came from: poor, which is why his sneaker will retail for $14.98 – not a typo – instead of more than $100 like most other player-endorsed kicks….

And Marbury… said this coming season he will wear the exact sneaker he helped design and will be sold in the stores. He hasn’t approached any teammates yet to wear the sneaker and there was no sight of ultimate Knicks fan Spike Lee, who used to help Michael Jordan hawk his Nikes that set the precedent for overpriced sneakers Marbury is attempting to break.

“We’re trying to change the world,” he said.

I just hope they’re better than Kobe’s Thunderjammers…

Vacation Photoblogging – Miniature Automobile Mishaps Edition

Well, I’m about halfway through processing the 1500 pictures from La Jolla, San Diego, and Laguna Beach, so I may not be posting much of substance for another day or two – I should have a lot of photoblogging, though.

This installment is from the San Diego Model Railroad Museum. If anything, the model train sets were even cooler than the model trains themselves. The miniature motorcars seemed to be getting into all kinds of trouble, as I have documented here.

Uh-oh, it’s a miniature automobile mishap. Better call the tow truck.

Um, or not.

There ya go. Who needs tow trucks?

I think someone will very soon, actually…
