Forgive me if Ive told this one before.
I sold more Christmas wreaths than any other Cub Scout growing up in my suburban Chicago troop. My reward was tickets for my dad and I to see the Artis Gilmore, Tom Borwinkle and the rest of the Chicago Bulls on a wintery evening at the old Madhouse on Madison Chicago Stadium. As I remember it, the Bulls were down by 8 with only 10 seconds to go. And they came back an won, making me a lifetime Bulls believer and in overcoming impossible challenges.
Many felt it was an overachievement for MVP Derek Rose to lead the Bulls to the NBAs best record to play in the Eastern Conference finals since they wilted in the presence of the Heat. Sure Tom Thibodeau won Coach of the Year and with such a young team the ghost of Michael Jordan and Phil Jacksons multiple back to back championships seemed slightly less daunting. But I dont think anyone expected this. Especially after getting a sense that the NBA would simply move Bulls press conferences directly to Chicago Memorial Hospital.
Instead while many of the teams brought out crying towels for the wear and tear the shortened 66 game season wrought on their star players, the Bulls and Thibs:
Won a HIGHER percentage of games than last year Had an Eastern Conference best 50-16 record. Tied for the best record with San Antonio but secured home court advantage for their entire playoff duration by virtue of holding the head to head regular season tie-breaker.
But now Barack Obama has declared the Bulls will be the World Champions. And has thus cursed the Bulls from here on out:
How have other teams done that he has endorsed?: http://www.politijim.com/2012/04/historic-season-for-chicago-bulls-now.html

"Maybe Sports Illustrated will put Obama on its cover prior to the election. And hell stay a Chicago White Sox fan."
Perhaps BO could be put on the cover of Madden NFL 13 as well.
An 8 point comeback in the final 10 seconds BEFORE the 3-pointer existed??? C’mon
I hope it’s either the Mavs, Spurs or Thunder to win it all.
FWIW After Obama threw the pitch at the all star game that one year he almost, almost made me become a Cubs fan.
Øbama must’ve endorsed the FL Panthers. They were eliminated from the playoffs last night.
I’m in mourning today. I hate the devils.
NOPE! Grizzes Win
That would work, too......actually it’s pretty much “Anybody But Miami or The Lakers” for me.
I feel for you the Blackhawks have been on the decline since they visited the White Hut a couple of years ago.
Yes the White Sox fan who didn't know the name of the park, repeatedly calling it Kaminsky Park rather than Comiskey, couldn't name a single current or former Sox player, and called the umpire the 'judge'. Yes what a sports fan.
In addition to SI, ozero’s picture needs to be on a box of Wheaties and on the back of a milk carton.
Derrick Rose tore his ACL today. I would be beating up on Dear Leader if if I him.
Crap.....that pretty much means Miami is going to win the Eastern Conference.
Gris blew a 26 or 27 point lead over the Clippers. How do ya do that and at home?
Now that’s a choke of epic proportions.
