It may or may not be the best of times or the worst of times, but it is a Tale of Two Michaels. This week marks the return of the two Michaels, Jordan and Tyson, to the spotlight in sportsworld. The return of either one would be a major story, but the return of both in one week is a bonanza. The two Michaels also offer two very different stories of departure and return, and no doubt both evoke a wide range of emotions.
