Bulls Wed Apr 02 2008

Bulls? Bulls Who?

I pick up a newspaper the other day and realized that – huh? – the Bulls are still playing! Seriously. I mean, who knew? Between the opening of the new baseball season, the march to the Final Four and Dale Bowman spotting muskies at Heidecke Lake in Morris, Ill., I had completely forgotten about their existence. But there they were on Tuesday, getting their hats handed to them by the Boston Celtics in a 102-92 loss.

So when is this deathwatch going to be over? Well, you can console yourself with the fact that there are only eight games remaining in the Jim Boylan Era (as of April 2) until the team is finally taken off life support. In the meantime, enjoy the hardcourt stylings of Shannon Brown and Cedric Simmons, recently brought up from something called the Iowa Energy of the D(evelopmental) League.
