The Converse Blog's Friday Flashback: Michael Jordan Team USA

Happy 4th of July, which is without question the most important American Holiday. The only problem is, July 2nd 1776 is the actual day that the Continental Congress actually voted for independence. The written Declaration of Independence was dated July 4 but wasn't actually signed until August 2. Fifty-six delegates eventually signed the document, although all were not present on that day in August. By the way, I put in an application for a social studies teaching position yesterday. I don't know what that means for the blog, maybe I'll just have to post at night.'s flashback is all about the Red, White, and Blue!

I am not sure the shoe(s) that Michael Jordan is wearing hear, but I do know that they have a Chevron and they do have Star and that makes them Converse.  I can't think of shoe brand that is any more American than Converse and I am going to wear my pair of Chucks today, the ones with the American flag on them.

I am flying out to Orlando tomorrow for a week of vacation and I can't wait.  I am going to hit up at least two Converse outlet stores.  We're going to the Tampa Bay Rays game on Sunday and I might try to get to the Converse store outside of Tampa, but we'll see.  This means two things, I probably won't be able to post any pics from the summer league or give any updates on Rose, Beasley, or any other rookie signings by Converse.  I am going to just future post some pictures for the rest of the week, I didn't really plan ahead enough so you'll just have to stop in and see what's up.
