Michael Jordan Wears a Helmet While Jet Skiing, Because Safety First Amiright? (Pics)

Most people don’t wear helmets when they go jet skiing. But Michael Jordan does.

Jordan is on vacation in Italy this week, and some paparazzi snapped some pics of His Airness zipping around on a jet ski off the Italian coast…wearing a helmet.

Now, professional jet ski racers wear helmets. But recreational jet skiers do not. You know, because you’re on water.

Why the hell is MJ wearing a helmet? That’s a good question, internet! It could just be that, when you’re a living legend and a billionaire, you take your personal safety more seriously than us regular folk who have practically nothing to lose. It could also have something to do with the fact that he was jet skiing around cliffs and caves, which probably pose more of a concussion risk than the sandy bottom of whatever manmade lake you do your jet skiing on.

Whatever the reason, it’s still pretty funny. Take a look:
