Inane and Insane - Wednesday, July 12, 2006
I almost choked on my breakfast as the morning news informed me of the most ridiculous, and senselessly funny, court cases I've yet to hear.

So apparently a guy in Oregon named Allen Heckard, who seemingly bears a close likeness to Michael Jordan, is tired of being mistaken for the basketball legend daily for the past 15 years and is now suing Jordan and Nike for $832 million for emotional damages arising from Jordan's image being so well-known.

Heckard also plays basketball and it upsets him to hear that he plays like His Airness. He was also caught wearing Air Jordan shoes, which he claims he does because they are the most comfortable. I don't know about you, but if my likeness to a celebrity was driving me crazy, I wouldn't be strutting around in his clothes.

And who knows just how many days he's used his Jordan-likeness to get freebies and pick up women!
