ICYMI, Jimmer Fredette is not why the Bulls have won nine of their past 10 games. As for the next 10 ...
1. Why have the Bulls been so hot lately?
|Clark Jones: Coach Thibs wears short-shorts to practice whenever they lose.|
|Aly Bockler: Joakim's campaigning for that MVP title?|
|Scott Bolohan: They've just been hanging around their less-hot friends.|
|John Dooley: They've switched from practicing at the old 40-foot court located at Bayside High.|
|Angi Taylor: Not sure, since the hottest player is STILL not playing. (Talking to you, Rose.)|
2. What does Jimmer Fredette mean when he says the Bulls "play the right way"?
|Clark Jones: They haven't been mistaking him for a ball boy.|
|Aly Bockler: Is this his "you complete me" speech?|
|Scott Bolohan: They usually dribble.|
|John Dooley: "Play the right way" = "not the crappy Kings wrong way."|
|Angi Taylor: Winning. He means winning = right.|
3. It's been so long since the Blackhawks played at the United Center ...
|Clark Jones: ... home practice was interrupted by the filming of "Space Jam."|
|Aly Bockler ... Jim Cornelison had to take a side gig selling tamales at nightclubs.|
|Scott Bolohan: ... now it's the United Senior Center.|
|John Dooley: ... the ice crew may have forgotten where they left their shovels! What will we do?!|
|Angi Taylor: ... "Chelsea Dagger" has been replaced by "Drunk in Love" as the goal song.|
4. Starlin Castro has a hamstring strain. How concerned are you?
|Clark Jones: About as concerned as Castro is with professional baseball.|
|Aly Bockler: We're talking 7-10 days here. I've had drinking benders last that long!|
|Scott Bolohan: As long as he's back before the NLCS, should be fine.|
|John Dooley: I'm concerned I won't get to see him swing at curveballs in the dirt. So sad.|
|Angi Taylor: About as concerned before the strain. Does it even matter anymore?|
5. Winning a golf tournament on a 75-foot putt is like ...
|Clark Jones: ... starting off by admitting you live in your mom's basement, and still having her end up there.|
|Aly Bockler: ... Joakim Noah actually getting that MVP title.|
|Scott Bolohan: ... almost like winning in a real sport.|
|John Dooely ... winning a box set of old "90210" episodes on an obscure Brenda question. Not that I've done that.|
|Angi Taylor: ... my husband agreeing to golf with me. UNLIKELY. *pouty face*|
