So last week I had the opportunity to spin for Niketown’s grand-reopening in downtown Seattle. Guess how long I spun for…. wait for it… wait for it………..10 HOURS! Crazy right? Even though it was a long time I had a great time with the whole crew and they were so nice to give me free Nike gear! When I showed up one of the crew members asked me “Do you have your gear?” I was like sure! It’s right there on my cart. She was like NO your clothing! LOL!! She handed me a Nike box, track pants and a top. When I went downstairs to change I opened the Nike box and it was a brand spankin new pair of Airmax 95s! I never received a free pair of anything from NIKE before so I was pretty happy and super thankful that I’m even getting an opportunity like this.
Warren Moon also joined the festivities to sign the big 12 that’s displayed inside the store.
As the day went by my cousins came by to visit me and one of them goes… hey is that Gary Payton? I looked up stairs and I was like holy shiet! It’s the GLOVE! I guess my DJ psychic abilities kicked in and I was like I’m going to make this man come over here to the DJ booth. So I switched up the music vibe and went straight 90’s! I started with Father MC feat Jodeci- Everything is going to be alright, then went into Johnny Kemp- Just got paid (see where I’m going here?) Then after the 4th song guess who comes downstairs to the DJ booth.. GARY PAYTON!!! In my head I was like YESSSSS it worked!! He was super BTW! That was probably the highlight of the night since I remember watching this guy as a kid in the 90s.
Well that’s all folks! Till the next post! I’m doing a bunch of the events this week so I’ll def have more blog posts to write. Hope you all have a great weekend!
