I’m giving away my cherished Michael Jordan jersey tonight. I haven’t worn it in years, and I’m sure someone else will love it more.

Before hopefully enriching another’s life, I wanted to document the story of the garment for my own memories. It was Spring Break in my youth and my mother and grandmother had taken my brother and I to Washington, DC. While perusing the city, I spotted this beautiful white Bulls jersey in a window, and since Spring Break closely aligned with my birthday I implored my grandmother to buy it for me. Thanks to the magnificent woman that she is, I have enjoyed my Michael Jordan jersey for nearly half my life.

I wish it well and that another youth finds joy in it whomever they might be.
