Kangski sez...
Sheldon W. (one of two baseball jerseys in a row)
Know what’s great about hi skool? You can roll up in Jordans and polka dot shirts in grade 9. And the next year your hair can be dyed blue as you wear 10-hole Docs hanging in the butt lounge (the unofficial name of the area where the Dirtys smoked ciggys)…
That’s pretty much what happened to ol’ Sheldon here. I was mad jealous because he had all three colorways of the Jordan Vs (the joints with the reflective tongues). But little did either one of us know that a few years later he’d eschew all that for black trench coats and a whole different kind of air sole.
Also of note – backintheday baseball jerseys were MAD popular – don’t ask me why. They’re not particularly flattering, but I guess that was sort of par for the course at the time. Kris Kross rocked a number of them in their videos – and they had mad flavorful selections: Georgetown was obviously a popular choice, but I recall the Kris’s also rockin’ Fighting Illini joints, too. Strictly Starter too, BTW – which, as ludicrous as it sounds today, was THE hottest athletic brand back then.
And so we see Sheldon rocking some sort of baseball jersey here – likely the Yanks – and tomorrow you’ll meet Warren, the dude who comes after him in the yearbook (also wearing pinstripes)…
