Sneakerheads Created a Pair of Crying Jordan VIIIs Because it’s 2016

If you’ve perused social media during the final minutes of a sporting event recently, it’s fair to assume you’re familiar with the Crying Jordan meme.

If not, just know that the tears of Michael Jordan have become an Internet sensation. Just ask Jordan Spieth who recently felt the wrath of “His Tissues.”

So it makes perfect sense that a pair of Crying Jordan VIIIs actually exist. Kudos to Sherman Winfield and Andrew Weiss for creating a true work of art:

Now the question is, how much will someone fork over to buy a pair of these?

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — New Jersey’s sports betting market is closing in on the $1 billion dollar mark after less than six months of operation.

Figures released Wednesday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement show New Jersey’s casino and racetrack-based sports books took in over $330 million worth of bets in November.

Gamblers in the state have plunked down $928 million on sports events since sports betting began in mid-June.

The $21.2 million that sports books kept from that money, along with another strong month of internet gambling, helped Atlantic City’s casinos post an increase of nearly 25 percent in gambling revenue in November, compared with a year ago.

The casinos won $257 million from gamblers in November.

There are two more casinos operating this November than there were a year ago.

Defending champion Joey “Jaws” Chestnut chomped down a record 74 franks and buns to take home his 11th title at the annual Nathan’s Famous July Fourth hot dog eating contest.

The renowned competitive eater from San Jose, California, takes home the coveted Mustard Belt and surpassed the previous mark of 72 dogs and buns he downed last year.

The heat wasn’t a factor; the National Weather Service put the temperature at 83 degrees with a heat index of 91 degrees.

Miki Sudo said after eating 37 dogs and buns that the heat may have slowed her down in winning the women’s competition.

That didn’t stop the Las Vegas eater from easily beating out second-place finisher Mischelle Lesco of Tuscon, Arizona, who chowed down 28 wieners and buns.
