04:49 PM ET 12.12 | If you are a sports fan, you know what everyone is talking about when they bring up the legendary flu game from then Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan. The moment in sports is so popular that the shoes Jordan wore during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals have sold for an incredible $104,765, which is a new record for game-worn sneakers. Getting collectible Jordan sneakers will often lead to a hefty price tag, but nothing will compare to the red and black Jordan 12s that he wore on that day, so one person has a very unique piece of memorabilia from sports history.

On a serious note...there are people with no food or shelter, and this fool is thowing away that kind of money on a pair of sneakers. We truly do have it way too good in the US. No wonder we're hated around the world.
