50 years after Apollo 11 took the first man to the moon, NASA Astronaut Lt. Col. Andrew Morgan is taking the first Spurs jersey to space.

Morgan says he's always been a Spurs fan. "I see the work the Spurs do with our wounded warriors and that's special to the city of San Antonio," said Morgan. Morgan went on to say, "when you look at the team's history and the reputation the team has and its performance on the court, there's no doubt in my mind that that's rooted in the culture of the team and rooted in the culture of San Antonio and I'm proud to have an association with the city."

Morgan will spend the next nine months living and working on the International Space Station.
