    about ten years ago I wouldn't even admit Russell had a better career.

      I remember the first time I saw MJ. I was standing in the LR and Basketball was on the TV. Suddenly this amazing being was flying across the screen, and his movement was so beautiful. I gasped. I had not had my breath taken away like that, since I was little and saw Bill Russell. I was completely hooked.

      After that, I was glued to the screen when ever he played. When he came to town, you know I had tickets! When he 'retired' to play baseball, I was inconsolable.

      So I totally get any and all devotion to his career, his accomplishments and his talents. He was mesmerizing and thrilling. Every time I saw him play, he took my breath away all over again. I always felt really privileged that I was getting to see such greatness.

      You really have an excellent way of expressing things, simple, to the point, yet chock-full of the goodness. I was especially taken with this post of yours

      You really gave voice to what I was thinking and couldn't figure out how to say.  I wanted to thank you for that!
