What’s up with these shoes

People throwing their shoes over the power line

I’m not sure where the tradition to throw your shoes over the power line has come from, but looks like sometimes people go too far. This morning on my bike ride to Hicks Road, I saw this site that made me stop. There must have been at least over a dozen pairs of shoes over this power line. When it rains, the weight of the shoes must bring the power line on the verge of breaking.

    I grew up in Philly and saw this all the time, I still see it today on occasion. About a year ago, I even saw that someone tossed an old PS game controller up on the power lines (times have changed).
