We first heard something about MJ's massive heart attack while on the way home from work, then came home to skeptically read TMZ's report that he was pronounced dead -- but no other publication had confirmed this at that point. On the way to dinner this evening @ The Greenhouse Tavern in the car a radio broadcaster unfortunately confirmed that he had in fact died.
Coincidentally, prior to leaving for dinner we noticed on Facebook that Chef Sawyer said he would be playing the King Of Pop's tunes in MJ's honor tonight at the GHT. We enjoyed every single morsel of our delicious dinner while we also enjoyed listening and reminiscing to many classic jamz from Captain Neo. During dinner, Kelly and I specifically started talking about Jam and how we had not heard that song in quite some time. Laughing about how stereotypically 90's the music video is -- which includes cameos from Kris Kross, Heavy D, Michael Jordan, among others. We were also fondly recalling during our youth that when MJ had a new music video premiere it was a worldwide event.
On a day where Michael Jackson left us and Shaq came to be with us, it seems fitting to pay tribute with this basketball themed tune:
