  1. This sucks but Jesus, relax people. Good hitters coming up.

    I think people should just be happy that our top pick from 2 years ago is already up contributing to a win with 4 f’n hits.
  3. Sheesh...would’ve been around 30th hardest hit ball in all of majors last year.

    How could I forget...Jordan of course saw the kid with the Superman shirt on and said "Get up here Superman" before it all went down. It was great!

    I have seen Jordan a handful of times, I remember him hitting a game winner on Charlotte in '97...awesome moment. I was very lucky when I was in 5th and 6th grade to attend his came in Elmhurst for 5th grade up to 12th grade, we got to meet him. 10 hours a day for 5 days, MJ showed up 3 times a day, each time in a new car....15 total cars that week. Upper Deck was there to authenticate autographs, all the counselors were great college players (Jason Terry, Shawn Marion), the last day featured a scrimmage with NBA players and the counselors, Juwan Howard and Pippen showed up, I came in 2nd in a free throw contest and lost in the championship to a senior, I was devastated. Best week of my life and well worth using my summer allowance on that week, you more than make up for it with the value of the signature you'd get (I don't think I'll ever sell) My favorite story is Jordan scrimmaged three kids a day (one for each visit) up to 5, picks a short senior in high school kid with a Superman shirt on. Kid gets the ball first, takes MJ to the baseline and crosses him over three times...Jordan gets faked a little on the last crossover and the kid rises up and swooshes a 12 footer over Jordan and leaves his hand raised in the air as he walked back to the top of he key. The entire gym went nuts....Jordan then blocked him and dunked on him 5 times in a row to win 5-1. The competitiveness is unquestionable.

    Reinsdorf made some fascinating comments today stating him and MJ had several meetings that he will never detail and JR had no doubt in his mind Jordan had his doubts about winning again considering all of the drama surrounding the team, changes, personal lives, etc. It still is like seeing a giant...I saw him at Midway getting off a flight at the same time as me a few years ago, I was walking behind him and he was burning me...I'm 20 years younger than him. Every one step for him was 3 for me.

    Sun Times reports ownership and Paxson want to keep Boylen but the new regime wants him out. AK has the final say, though. Sickening that it’s even being reported.

    Game has been flipped on it's head. I don't think they've disappeared, I just think they focus on shooting 3's now and being more all-around than Centers of the past posted on the block.

    Dalton - $3M guaranteed, Winston - $1M guaranteed, Cam - still available... Foles - $21M guaranteed and a 4th round pick I'm not saying Dalton is a huge upgrade over anybody, Foles has had his times but doesn't look to be a huge upgrade either yet they paid a pretty penny for his services.

    Would've been great if we held onto that 4th pick and just signed Dalton but...hindsight.

    That was funny but to be fair, they did that with most people in the show and how they related to the Bulls in a past life rather than what they are most known for.
  13. Would TA still bat flip after a home run if there were no fans?
  14. PHX as a city (not including the suburbs where most games are) is the 10th largest city by land area in the country. They are already the 5th-6th biggest population in the country, it's a large city and metro area.
