Michael Jordan had no problem with a 442.3-pound blue marlin.
On the second day of the Big Rock blue marlin fishing tournament in Morehead City N.C., which began Monday, Jordan and his crew reeled in a whopper of a catch, 247 Sports’ Ross Martin reported. The group set out for the competition on Jordan’s custom, $80 million yacht named “Catch 23.”
Episode 11 of “The Last Dance” (“The Last Cast?” “The Last Mast?”) is sure to be something. This, anyway, is quite the hook. Sure to reel in viewers in droves.
One wonders what that marlin could have done to Jordan to provoke such a performance. Perhaps it sputtered by the boat without acknowledging Jordan during the crew’s lunch break. Perhaps it was heard bubbling to the rest of its school: “‘Catch 23’ doesn’t explode like No. 23 used to.” Maybe a fabricated tale will leak to the press tomorrow that the fish, while lapping around Jordan’s yacht, commented on the day’s splendid weather conditions.
Whatever the case, Jordan and Co. corralled it. The competition runs through June 13, so plenty of time remains to work his way into competition for a first place finish — according to Martin, the last six winners of the tournament have averaged 670.3 pounds. The competition’s record was set in 2019 with a 914-pounder taking home first place honors.
Jordan's teams' Tuesday catch put them in fifth place. You can bet he isn’t satisfied with that.
Let’s hope they don’t flounder to the finish line.
NBC Sports Chicago will honor the Bulls great with “Derrick Rose Week presented by Saint Xavier University” starting up Monday, June 8 at 7:00 PM CT with the first of five-straight nights of “Classic” game performances.
