While the NBA and the NCAA have been shut down all spring/summer long, Hall of Famer and six-time NBA Champion Michael Jordan has somehow spent more and more time in the spotlight. He is coming off the heels of the airing of the 10-part docuseries “The Last Dance”, which gave us a never-before-seen look at His Airness and the 97-98 Chicago Bulls season.
One thing that we have known all along but got a closer look at was how ultra competitive Jordan is. It’s a level of competitiveness that we quite honestly may never see in the NBA again, or if we do it’s hard to imagine it will result in six championships. There’s only one Michael Jordan, and he will either destroy you on the court or...at sea?
That’s right, Michael Jordan participated in the 62nd Annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City, North Carolina this past week. He took his boat Catch 23 out to sea and caught a 442-lb Blue Marlin, which was good enough to put him in fifth-place in the tournament standings. Needless to say, everyone was very excited about his catch:

MJ’s big catch was extremely impressive, and it may leave some people wanting to commemorate one of the few feel-good moments during the year of 2020. If you’re one of those people, we have a new t-shirt for you!
Our good friends at BreakingT released a “Catch 23 Fishing Charter” t-shirt, complete with a graphic of MJ’s marlin-snagging boat:
If you have ever purchased a shirt from BreakingT, you know that they make some of the most comfortable shirts you will ever wear. All of the graphics on their shirts are also of great quality, and should last a long time. Admittedly I have a “The Ceiling is the Proof” shirt that has outlasted the 2017 national championship shirt that I purchased right after the Heels beat Gonzaga. If you are looking for a new shirt for the summer, this is a great option.
With Father’s Day quickly approaching, it may make for a fun gift for the father figure in your life. If you are interested in purchasing BreakingT’s newest creation, you can pick one up here.
Stay safe, stay looking good, and Go Heels!
