If the Bulls win game 7 I might off myself.
I got on a plane (in Chicago, oh sweet irony) right before halftime last night. I got off and as I casually strolled through the baggage claim, noticed crowds of people watching the 3rd overtime. The what?? Yes, even the taxi dispatcher was totally ignoring a 50 person line and instead was watching the game on a Laguardia Baggage Claim Flatscreen. I tuned in just in time to see Rajon with that monster tip in, followed by Chicago’s bricklaying at the line, followed by … well … I can’t really talk about this any more. except RAYALLENHAD51FUCKINGPOINTSANDISTHEBESTCLUTCHSHOOTERINTHE PLAYOFFSANDDIDNTTOUCHTHEBALLFORTHELASTTWOMINUTES!
The dispatcher tried to console me as he got me a taxi. It did not work. Somehow Bill Simmons is keeping it together.
P.S. If you’re not watching this series, I feel sorry for you. Simmons is exactly right, this is why we actually watch sports. I can’t say a single original thing about it, it speaks for itself. Game 7 is Friday at7:30. You should watch it.
