Haha, perfect one two punch there. Usually, that would remind me of the ravages of time that I have to look forward to in life. Considering it is Jordan, you might as well caption those pictures "Sexy" and "Sexier".

Dude's going NUTS. If you speak any negativity towards Michael Jordan in my household (especially at family get-togethers where my dad is with his brothers), you get your face smacked up. The man is a god. The greatest athlete of all time.

Jordan can supposedly be a very bad tipper at times. Once, Charles Barkley confronted him about this. Jordan got enraged and said "Serving Michael Jordan is this guy's fucking tip!"


Yep, I caddied for a long time and heard that guys who played with Jordan always referred to him as ghost or shadow. If he owed you money he was a ghost, if you owed him money he was a shadow.

^It's not great, but I took that one when we won Game 6 of the Finals, and thus the championship, over Utah in 1997. Good times. (I was working for AFP, who are now distributed by Getty.) Watching Michael Jordan play up close, wow. It was something special. The man was magic, art, and science all rolled into one.

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

critics blame McDonald's for using a clown to draw in kids that end up making them obese.

It was never about the clown for me. I ate here so much cos of this guy, got all the collector cups

I would not invite Terry Boers over to your house anytime soon, then. Dude covered Jordan and the Bulls in those days and said if people knew any of the stories, they would be sick.

I have read that book and I would say it is essential for the true Jordan fan or even someone casually interested in the mindset of the greatest champion of all time.

The media and public never gave his second comeback the attention it deserved - especially in the wake of 9/11.

Going back over some of those Wizards games, he was in a way of even more beautiful. I have always loved the way the true greats (Bird, Sabonis, Jordan come instantly to mind) manage to conquer the game with their minds when their bodies have failed them.



What a man, what a man, what a mighty good man, a mighty mighty good man.

Longtime complaint: media's oversaturation of the dipsy-flopsy layup against L.A. as the defining Michael Moment. It's not even in the Top 10. Or Top 100. I.e. - I still get tingles thinking about the courtside shot of Michael, hands on hips, staring down 'Zo after his aggressive elbow gave Pippen a grapefruit sized knot on his forehead. Or Michael choking Reggie. Or Michael's ridiculous from-behind block, where he'd leap...wait...then swing horizontally with a tomahawk chop to swipe the ball away...or Michael's patented one-hand fake shot to get his defender off his feet...or Michael's back-to-the-basket arch to create the neccessary inches to smoke somebody out of his jock...or Michael clapping baby powder into Kerr's face at the scoring table...or... I still love Walter more, though.

Yeah, that Lakers move is incredibly overrated. Basically, if you consider that to be Jordan's moment - you don't know Jordan. How about when he would wave the ball behind a guy's head with one hand and the guy would be looking for it and turning around, meanwhile Jordan is blowing by him to dunk on some other unfortunate bastard? That was always a treat. There is a clip of him going 1 on 1 against some high school kids at a camp recently and just abusing them with all his signature moves and then dunking on their heads. Even still, he soars. He talks trash the whole time, too. I also love the fact that he is a gambling fiend - the man just has the need to make everythign a competition. On Bulls road trips, he used to bet guys on whose luggage would come up first at the turnstile, little did they know that he had paid off the baggage handlers to rig the game. I remember reading that MJ, Scottie, and Horace all had sons around the same time - they even wagered to see who's son had the biggest wang. Not sure who won that competition. He obviously needed to dominate women. Jordan is a wild creature created to destroy, he is capitalism personified and unleashed in the perfect human form.
