    A feature story about a man's size 16 claim to fame
This was a feature story about a man from Travelers Rest, SC who, during the 1996 Olympic Games, caught one of Charles Barkley's tennis shoes when he threw it into the stands.  Years later, Asa Shirley still recalls the thrill of grabbing the attention of national media outlets for a brief time and being known as "The Shoe Boy."
