    Just saw the Dwyane Wade commercial where he talks about how God needs to be a part of everyone's life.
    He finishes, and the Converse logo flashes on the screen.
    I like Wade. Think he'll be on of the ultimate studs in the game when its said and done. But WTF did his alliance w/ Converse have to do with God? Or vice versa?
  2. My shoes wear the star and that's no jive.
    They're standard equipment on the 5th street Five.
    When I fly through the air for my famous slam-dunk,
    the star's on my shoes, and that's no bunk.
    My shoes'll be wearing the Converse name
    'Til they bronze my feet for the hall of fame.

    Converse All Stars -- Limousines For The Feet.

  3. My favorite Converse story involves Eric Fernsten who was the last guy on the bench for some of those great Celtics teams of the 80's. When he first got to Boston he asked Larry Bird for a couple of pairs of sneakers since bird got all he wanted for free from Converse. Bird asked Fernsten if he had a sneaker contract and Ferny said "no".

    The next day Fernsten had both the sneakers and a sneaker contract via the basketball Jesus.

    Chuck Taylor will tell you that Converse is aligned with Allah- not God.

    Silly Boom. Allah is God.

    And Jesus' original sandals were Tevas.

    Silly me - I always thought that Larry Bird was god.

    If jesus is wearing tevas - please dear god let it be without socks. At least he is not in birks.
