First post, but I figured this is safe since it doesn't ask for medical or parenting advice, and I haven't seen this mentioned on the board. Anyway, I came accross an interesting article today from ESPN's Wright Thompson about Michael Jordan at 50. It's a little long, but worth the read IMHO. Interesting how much his competitive drive seems to be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Having grown up in the 80's and 90's, I can't believe MJ is FIFTY. I'm thankful that I got to see him play at his best, and I'm not sure we'll ever see a player/icon like him again.
maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
