ahhhh yes. let me set the scene for you. I believe it was 5th grade at Madisonville Junior High School. I usually rode the bus to school, but on this glorious day, my parents drove me. After all, this was the first day of school, and there was something different about me. I was a changed man...i mean..child. The car pulled up next to the chain linked fence that bordered the playground where my schoolmates played before the opening bell rang. My friends saw me and came running towards the fence, waving they're hands at me. I stepped out the backseat of my car, and I held my head high. I knew my friends couldn't help but notice. I mean, how could you not? I had somehow attained something that no one else at school had. I could see my friends eye's following my feet as I walked to the entrance. Thats right my friends, I was wearing Reebock's newest invention that was sure to change the way I performed on the playground....THE PUMP. The first thing i heard out of my friends mouths were "nice shoes." I kid you not. I remember this event like it was yesterday, and it has had a profound event on the course of my life. (ok thats a little embellished, but how else can you explain my recollection of this event?)
Now they're back. Reebock has introduced the pump for the second time. Question is, will it revolutionize the industry like it had so long ago? is there another 5th grader out there on whose life it will have such a profound effect? Only time will tell.
