Annus Horribilis

It was supposed to be another ‘normal’ day. I woke up early, turned on the TV, switched to Astro Supersports to catch the Bulls game against the New Orleans Pelicans at Chicago’s United Centre. I was hoping that the Bulls, with Rose back and playing at his All-Star level, would continue their current five games…
