With key in hand, I went to the Nike Vault Opening in downtown LA. And since I was early, I sat with my friend Ben and watched tourists take photos with the giant Magic Johnson statue that resides just outside its doors.

Once inside, I wanted to find out what exactly my key was to open. Apparently one lucky winner was to walk away with an autographed pair of Kobe sneakers, and lucky for me, my key worked!! The door unlocked and Ben was there to witness it all. I was so excited… until the guy in charge of the shoe case said “NO.” Apparently the case was “already unlocked” so me opening it didn’t count. That made no sense to me whatsoever since my key had turned and opened the case, but I shrugged it off. After all, they wouldn’t have fit anyway. Now if Ben would only send over the pics as evidence.. haha
