The Chicago Bulls Sing the Hits From the 80s

I know this is a joke ad from the Chicago Bulls but I would seriously consider purchasing this album of the Bulls players singing hits from the 80s. I really REALLY want to hear Brad Miller sing “Physical,” and while I dislike Joakim Noah on the court, but when he starts belting “Jessie’s Girl” I’m hooked.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I could also listen to that Derrick Rose, Tyrus Thomas version of “Ghostbusters” for the rest of my life.

This Doesn’t Smell Like a Rose

derrick20roseAccording to the NCAA, a player from the Memphis University Tigers, who only played on the team for the 2007-08 season before leaving (to go to the NBA) had someone else take his SATs in order to get him into college. That description only fits one member of the team, 2009 NBA rookie of the year, Derrick Rose who continues to insist he did nothing wrong.

“I took it, I took it,” he told reporters Friday. However, when pressed if he could remember his score, from a test presumably taken 2 years ago, he couldn’t recall it, adding “I don’t even remember my last report card.”

He probably can’t remember because college athletics are a joke for stars like him and he probably never went to class or took anything difficult. As smooth as Rose is on the court, his logic off it isn’t so good

“I wasn’t worried about anybody saying I didn’t take [the test],” he said. “If that’s the case, somebody would have then said it.” Well, somebody DID say it, the NCAA; yes the person who actually took the test hasn’t come forward, but that doesn’t change the evidence which points directly to him having someone else take the entrance exam for him.

Not that it matters, he used the school as the one-year delaying mechanism that the NBA has required and they used him to make millions of dollars. Win-win.



A True Warrior Doppelganger

In addition to being the presumptive Rookie of the Year, the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose has had a phenomenal first season playing as like a well-heeled veteran, and showing poise and maturity on the court. Featuring devastating quickness, a light touch on his shot and a near endless supply of moves, Rose looks set to be a force in the NBA for years to come. Construction began in 246 BC on the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shi Huangdi the First Emperor of China; all told an estimated 700,000 workers were involved in the making of nearly 9,000 individual terracotta statues to be buried as protection for the Emperor. Legends held that the statues were real warriors who would come to life to protect their deceased leader. Discovered in 1974 when a farmer attempted to dig a well, there have since been extensive efforts to dig out and exhume the long-lost works of art.

An Apple a Day Could Kill You

Superstud rookie Derrick Rose has jumped right into the NBA season, looking absolutely like a #1 overall pick SHOULD look, but sometimes there are reminders that he is only 20 years old. For example, he is unable to practice today because he required 10 stitches to close a gash on his arm. He wasn’t in a knife fight though or something badass — at least according to him — no, reportedly he rolled onto a knife that he had used to carve up an apple while in bed. Because I find it’s always best to leave loose blades in my bed. The ladies love the danger!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.
