Read the Love Letter An 18-Year Old Michael Jordan Wrote To His High School Girlfriend

I found this item while perusing Google Reader today, shared by Spencer Hall, the proprietor of the wonderful SB Nation college football blog Every Day Should Be Saturday. It's a handwritten note from Michael Jordan to a girl -- more specifically, one MJ (supposedly) wrote during Advanced Chemistry class at Laney High School.

We could waste more time here, but my pithy words won't do this thing justice. Have a look for yourself after the jump...


A bigger version can be found at Lelands, where this was apparently once up for auction. Letters of Note posted a rough translation, so that I don't have to:

Michael Jordan

My Dearest Laquette

How are you and your family doing, fine I hope. I am in my Adv. Chemistry class writing you a letter, so that tell you how much I care for you. I decide to write you because I felt that I made you look pretty rotten after the last night. I want to tell you that I am sorry, and hope that you except my apologie. I know that you feelings was hurt whenever I loss my necklace or had it stolen.

I was really happy when you gave me my honest coin money that I won off the bet. I want to thank you for letting me hold your annual. I show it to everyone at school. Everyone think you are a very pretty young lady and I had to agree because it is very true. Please don't let this go to your head. (smile) I sorry to say that I can't go to the game on my birthday because my father is taking the whole basketball team out to eat on my birthday. Please don't be mad because I am trying get down there a week from Feb. 14. If I do get the chance to come please have some activity for us to do together.

I want you to know that my feeling for you has not change yet. ← (joke) I am finally getting use to going with a girl much smaller than I. I hope you my hint. Well I have spent my time very wisely by write to you. I hope you write back soon. Well I must go, the period is almost over. See you next time around, which I hope comes soon.

With my Best Love

Michael J. Jordan
