“So I am sitting in a coffee shop on 17th Street right now (of all places) on vacation, and a dude across from me totally just opened up a fed ex box and pulled out what appears to be a vintage Michael Jordan Dream Team Jersey. Seriously. He was holding it up to himself and now he’s checking the tags. He’s like practically asking for all of the people here to stare at it. For some reason I find this to be hilarious. If I could take a picture without seeming super creepy, I would.”

Phenomenal but for the fact that I’m pretty sure I did the same thing when I received my Patrick Viera France National Football Jersey…  Although, at least I was in my own home at the time.  That is pretty hilarious.  But it does beg the question:  Michael Jordan – greatest athlete of all time?
