It was exceptional to be a sports-obsessed child of the '90s (ages 3 to 13) for 10 main reasons:
1. Sports Illustrated for Kids
2. NBA Inside Stuff
3. D2: The Mighty Ducks
4. Ken Griffey Jr.
5. The naive belief that you had the only Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card
6. Matt Christopher books
7. Space Jam
8. Jordan Highlight VHS box sets
9. MTV Rock 'N' Jock Basketball (Dan Cortese, I SEE you).
10. Starter jackets
With all due respect to the first nine items on this list, no. 10, Starter jackets, is to Julie "The Cat"' Gaffney what nos. 1 to 9 are to Team Iceland.
