Michael Jordan at 50

I had tons of Michael Jordan junk when I was in junior high. At one point, I even had a small shrine in my bedroom dedicated to the guy. Over time, I've come to despise the man as one of the most arrogant personalities in sports, but still...MJ turned 50 today and I thought I'd take a look back at the days when he was my idol.

There is photographic evidence, people.

I had shirts...


I dunked on a Nerf hoop complete with a homemade "Jordan Jammer" backboard...


I even won a speech contest in 8th grade by sharing my thoughts on Jordan behind the theme "The Dream is Alive."


But what about a look at the junk I had? Here's a look at some things I used to have that have since been sacrificed via trash can or eBay...


Here's the junk I still have...


Sharing this stuff is one thing...but really, I just want to plug what is possibly my favorite Twitter account...EVER! For reals. If you're not following, @__MICHAELJ0RDAN, you're missing out.
