At the start of the game, Rory Mason, 7, of Herndon, one of the youngest fans in the stands, was wishing for a Jordan jam: "I hope he does a slam-dunk." This, Jordan's last game at MCI Center, was Rory's first. He had a Jordan jersey on his back and ketchup on his lip.
Fabian Biedermann, from Aargau, Switzerland, perhaps traveled the longest distance to see Jordan play. "I want to see him make a buzzer-beater tonight," Biedermann said. "And score, like, 60 points."
Something superhuman.
About four minutes into the game, Jordan dribbled between his legs and scored -- a jumper from the side. A little later, he granted Rory's wish and slammed one home.

Pretty cool, huh? Only 7 and he's already being quoted in the Post!

Very nice Mike.
That is a memory that Rory will have for the rest of his life.

Now, when does Rory get to go to his first U.S. Open? /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You'll have to contact his press agent to schedule some time! /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

<font color="blue">It fits him perfectly, he came out "roaring" and he hasn't stopped since. </font color>

VA beach is not ready for Rory. He is our wild child. He has been to the emergency 14 times and counting. Particularly when he goes out of town he gets in trouble. At one stretch he had been to 4 different ERs in three states in under six months!

Look at the bright side. He is doing research for his future career in medicine. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
