Speaking as a recovering sneakerhead (I’m on step 9, the “apology level”) even I can’t imagine spending almost 72 Geeeeeez on a damn pair of shoes. Although…….they are signed and dated by MJ too.
The average cost of a pair of Jordans in 2014 was estimated at $194 (ARE YOU SERIOUS?!? Yes I am), so just to be clear; the new owner of these Rookie Jordans could have bought roughly 368 pairs of BRAND NEW J’s and still take us out for pizza at Sbarro in the Mall Food Court.
If you’re between the ages of about 28-40 and you’re a sports fan, then you probably remember that true professional sports celebrity in the 80s and 90s was solely measured by how many highlight videos you were a part of.
For those of you under the age of 28 (and didn’t have an older sibling), let me briefly explain: a highlight video was mostly on VHS (the thing that looks like oversized music tapes made of plastic) OR if your family was rich/techy, the video was on Laser Disk (holy shit, it was a giant mini-disk…does anyone remember mini-disks?). This was before the internet, before you could look up instant highlights all the time via youtube or any number of kinds of online content.
I feel it is my duty as an all-knowing, all-sports-nerd and fan of the 80s and 90s; that I should keep the tradition of poorly edited and overly dramatic highlight videos going somehow. So without any more delay, I give you the “Sports Highlight Videos of the Past” of the day, here’s 12-15 minutes of quality time wasted:
and easily the worst song pick of ANY highlight video:
More to come, stay tuned………
