If you've lost a high–profile sporting event over the past year, we suggest you look away.
Michael Jordan turns 53 on Wednesday, predictably sparking retrospectives and photo galleries of the greatest player in NBA history. But the 53rd year of Michael Jordan's life was perhaps most notable for the emergency of MJ the meme: “Crying Jordan.”
If you’re unfamiliar with the origins of the meme, the photo of Jordan crying comes from his 2009 Hall of Fame induction speech. Sometime during the spring of 2015, Twitter decided it would be funny to use the face as a meme.
