Go da Bulls
I am told that the weather this week in Chicago was typically 'Spring in Chicago like'. It was in the 80's on Tuesday and in fact on Monday evening after I got home from the airport I walked to my local grocery store in my shorts. Yesterday, 4 days later I was in my coat as it was snowing and the temperature had dropped by 50 degrees. Unbelievable.
Later today I am going to the United Center to watch the Chicago Bulls embark on their first post season play-off's for 7 years. The young Bulls are not being given much of a chance against Washington Wizards but I am feeling the excitement in the City
and I have become a huge fan.
Charlton's season may be over but the Bulls ain't. By finishing with the 4th best
record in the Eastern Conference (in fact it was 3rd but Boston Celtics are seeded higher because they won their division) the Bulls have the all important home advantage in the best of seven series against the Wizards.
When I think back to earlier in the season when they were 0-9, I saw them get hammered by Phoenix when a mate was in town in front of a half empty stadium. The atmosphere when I was there again this Tuesday was much different and I am looking forward to this afternoon's game. I will post a little report on the outcome of the game tomorrow.
