A night after Osama bin Laden got Osama bin Assassined, the Chicago Bulls had an Eastern Conference Semifinals Game 1 to play in. To honor the best kill since the Joker smashed that mob member’s face into a pencil in The Dark Knight, the Chicago Bulls had the Chicago Blackhawks’ washing machine sounding full-time National Anthem singer, Jim Cornelison sing the Star Spangled Banner. Bulls fans could do nothing but cheer during the duration of the 2-minute rendition.
It was something so beautiful to take America’s minds off of something as ugly as Joakim Noah. And terrorism.
