Please Make It Stop: MJ In the Hall of Fame

It's been another hard week.  Everywhere I turn, there are clips of Michael Jordan.  And it is not that I don't like the guy, he was one of, if not the greatest player of all time.  And I have no shame in admitting that at one point in my childhood I had the following poster hanging in my room.  

But I have had enough of the clips of him hitting the game winning shot against Georgetown in the 1982 NCAA Championship game.  Yes he won the game for North Carolina, yes it was his first game winning shot in the national spotlight, and yes he was a freshman.  But people tend to forget that the most impressive freshman in that game was not Jordan, it was Patrick Ewing.  Ewing led the Hoyas with 23 points and 11 rebounds and 5 goaltends!  I repeat, 5 goaltends.  And if it weren't for Fred Brown throwing the ball away in the final seconds, the Jordan shot would be long forgotten.  

So congratulations to Jordan, no doubt in anyone's mind that you deserved the honor.  But I will continue to be bitter.  About everything.

Good talk.
