Air Jordan is Going to the Hall of Fame





Finally, Jordan is going into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Comcast Sports is broadcasting "23 Hours of MJ" in honor and every single major sports site has been doing something for his Airness, which, considering that the NFL season is nigh and with it America's myopic bloodlust for football, is rather impressive. With the best sports writers finding it difficult to capture all that Jordan means, suffice it to say, that "No. I'm not going to do any better." Just watch these vids of him being his awesome, gravity-defying, psychotically-competitive, ripper-of-hearts, and champion self.
