Maybe I collected too many basketball cards as a youngster because there is no reason why Michael Jordan’s birthday should be embedded im my brain.
I don’t even remember the majority of my friend’s birthdays. Anyway, February 17 should be some type of nationally recognized holiday.
I mean, we celebrated President’s Day yesterday and clearly not everyone can agree that each of the previous president’s brought us joy.
But Michael Jordan has brought a sense of awe to all Americans at one point or another. Whether watching him on T.V. or buying his shoes at a local footlocker, everyone’s lives have been impacted my his Airness.
And as a personal note to all the people overdosed on that guy from Ohio: LeBron wears number 23 for a reason.
