Like the great ODB said, "The Saga Continues........"

ODB in arguable the greatest Wu Tang song ever said

"The saga continues, Wu Tang, Wu Tang....."

In my case it would be

"The saga continues, Ebay, Ebay.....

That's right, I've resorted to what every person no doubt does when they cannot locate something they are looking for. They turn to Ebay.

So I type in Nike SB Cheech and Chong size 9

Four listings





Waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit a second..... 125.00? 28 hours left on the auction. I go to bed wake up and find 18 hours left in the auction, and I'm still winning for 127.00. Awesome! Maybe this will fly under the radar and I'll finally get my hands on these for a good price. Hours pass. Eight hours left in the auction and i get out bid. Queue the bidding war. Finally I'm on top, and the price is still reasonable. One hour left. I excitedly watch the time tick down..... One minute left and I'm still winning. I'm starting to get excited now.... 30 seconds left.... still winning. As the time ticks down in seconds I get to 9 seconds and get a notification on my mobile Ebay app on my phone I have been outbid. No worries, 9 seconds is fine, I can bid in that time and win.... I enter my price hit bid.... and nothing. I hit bid again nothing. All the sudden my mouse freezes, I can't move my cursor.

That's when I get this message "Firefox has encountered an error and needs to close"..........


Every day I sing your praises to the masses, and you decide to do me dirty like this!?

I got sniped with 9 seconds left. 9 seconds!

What do I have to do to get these shoes!?

These however did come in yesterday which is nice.

Everyone sums them up in one word: Flashy.

Kate's came in yesterday also and to be honest I like hers better than mine.

So there they are, our anniversary shoes. Each one has "One Year" printed on the heel. Pretty awesome idea, and a trend I hope we continue as the years pass. It's funny how disappointed I am over a pair of shoes. I am an adult, and pretty much have the capacity to buy myself what I would like but 250-300 dollars for a pair of shoes.... There are so many other things that money could go towards. Guess it's time to keep hunting.

Best Rap video of all time, The Saga Continues, Wu Tang Wu Tang

Also a look at a skateboarding legend in his heyday, Eric Koston who is a Nike SB team rider, this video is amazing.
