The little boy who grew up to become the Cornhuskers' mustachioed master of the circus catch wasn't sure the sport was for him when he showed up at a suburban Chicago park for the first practice with his third-grade team.
The kids were in the middle of a drill when Jordan went to the sideline feigning illness. In reality, he couldn't resist the siren song of the ice cream truck rolling by on a 98-degree afternoon.
