I’ve always loved the Converse brand! Who didn’t have a pair of “Chuck Taylor’s” growing up as a kid? Remember when the pro basketball players wore Converse……did I just reveal my age? At any rate, I rocked red, black and white converse back in the day. But much to my pleasure Converse is set to launch the next evolution of the Chuck II.
Once upon a time I watched American Idol, pretty much like everyone else in America was doing at that time – the early seasons. It was Season Two, better known as Clay vs Ruben. Ruben Studdard (the velvet teddy bear as he was nicknamed) went on to win that season. I can say he’s a very nice guy, having met him on more than one occasion. Actually I only watched American Idol that season because there was a contestant on the show that was from my hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, Lashundra Trenyce Cobbins, better known “Trenyce”. She had a pretty dynamic voice and made it all the way to being a top five finalist.
