Schfifty? That’s a lot of freaking SI covers. I thought that the week long ESPN slurp fest over MJ’s 50th birthday would get old, but it really hasn’t. I love it. I love the highlights. I love the shoes. I love the legend. I love it all. Any of you young lobsters born in the 90s probably hate it. Oh well, I’m pumped to read this SI issue. Honestly, I get pumped to read anything written by Lee Jenkins. Amazing writer.
