For Fun...

Person, Place or Thing?  Can you guess what I am?

1 An early version of me was introduced in 19th-century England

2 but I really hit my stride in 20th-century America

3 I am named for my stealthy personality

4 Sporty types love me

5 Jerry Seinfeld collected me.

6 I starred in the opening scene of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood

7 and Bella Swan wore me to the prom

8 In the U.K., I’m called trainers; in France, les baskets

9 Little kids like me with Velcro

10 I often sport a Nike ‘swoosh.’
