If you missed the media hoopla the past few days, the legendary Michael Jordan turned 50 years old this weekend. As this basketball icon was celebrating his day of birth being showered with TV specials illustrating his unbelievable career, AARP gave MJ the greatest gift of all- a big slap in the face reminding him he’s over the hill and retired. Forget the cover of Sports Illustrated highlighting the talented athlete he is – instead he gets his membership to AARP and lands the cover of AARP Magazine. MJ officially gets his senior citizen discount.
Did you know AARP Magazine is the largest circulated magazine in the United States? So TECHNICALLY it’s a bigger honor that Sports Illustrated. I bet the non-egotistical best basketball player of all time was just thrilled to receive this honor…#airgoesAARP
Well Happy Belated Birthday MJ. You were absolutely my favorite player of all time. Let’s end on a positive note and honor #23 the way we should.
