Imagine being the only female — a 21-year-old female to be exact — in a dorm of 18- to 19-year-old freshmen huddled around a TV as if it were a warm fire on Chicago’s coldest day watching Game 6 of the Chicago Bulls.
Each layup, each free throw, each jumpshot, each pass, each pick, each foul, each call, each timeout, each buzzer . . . their reactions just got stronger and stronger.
Not to mention, their reactions at — count ’em — three overtimes.
What did the scene look like?
I know this is an entertainment blog, but sports IS entertainment. Wherever you were watching the Bulls game tonight, you HAVE to say that the reactions you saw — the joy, the anger, the relief, everything — was entertaining as heck! I couldn’t stop laughing watching these boys hug and hold each other as the Bulls tied 118-118. Then 123-123. Then finally 128-127! By the second overtime I found myself holding my breath and saying “Crap!” to some of the lame calls the refs made or the unbelievable shots the Bulls and the Celtics made. At the end of the game these boys were head over heels for Derrick Rose and John Salmons. One of the guys, Don Whigan (in red) even said, “He makes this shot, ima get a tattoo on my arm!! (makes the shot) I’M GETTING A TATTOO TONIGHT!!!” (Of course, lamely, he didn’t follow through).
|The pictures speak for themselves. These boys’ reactions are HILARIOUS. I’m pretty sure whoever you were watching the game with was just as entertaining as these boys. Check out the hilarious pictures individually here.|
Tonight’s game was more than entertaining, and probably one of the best games we’ve seen since Michael Jordan. Some are even saying the best series ever! Let’s hope our hearts can handle Game 7 and more.
Hey. Anything’s possi-bull.
