Miley Cyrus Has Got to Go

Miley goes too far

No, Miley, this is not okay. First she put on that horrid spectacle at the VMA’s on Sunday and today she destroys a Michael Jordan jersey into one of her “signature” two piece numbers.

It’s one thing for the former Disney Channel star to make a mockery of her already non-respected pop-music career, but this chick needs to steer clear of the sports world. MJ fans will find you girl.

The inspiration for the Jordan jersey two piece is Mike WiLL Made It’s new song, “23”. Other featured artists are Miley’s buddies Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa.

I’m officially reporting this photo as “inappropriate” on Instagram because it offends me.

Petty Predators: Keeping the Red Out

138970992FUN SPOILER: Don’t plan on making your annual road-trip to NashVegas this year to watch our Chicago Blackhawks dominate the Predators. Apparently, Nashville doesn’t appreciate Hawks fans invading their city/stadium during the season according to a report by Section 303. It’s too bad Chicago fans travel better than any other fans. Sorry we’re not sorry.

This entire situation can be summed up with two words, petty and pathetic. The Predators organization is openly admitting that Blackhawks fans filled Bridgestone Arena with red last season and they’re hell bent on avoiding a repeat scenario. LAME.

This upcoming season you will not be allowed to buy single game tickets for the November 16, December 17 and April 12 dates against the Blackhawks. In order to get tickets to those games, you’ll be required to purchase a second game as well. The ONLY decent thing about this situation is that the organization has implemented a plan that you can donate your second game tickets to members of the military.

“For Blackhawks games, we want to make sure that we preserve this building as much as we can for those who live in Smashville,” said Predators president and chief operating officer Sean Henry.

5178167807_25deb8101d_zSeems to me like Mr. Henry is a bit of a coward. Predators fans have the ability to buy season tickets, they have the ability to buy single game tickets and it’s really not Chicago’s fault that they’re not selling out from the get-go. Maybe they need to work on building a better fan base throughout the city instead of worrying about Chicago fans traveling down to Music City for a weekend.

The “Keeping the Red Out” campaign was launched in 2012 when the Predators were scheduled to play their arch nemesis Detroit Red Wings in the first round in the Stanley Cup playoffs. They’re now extending the campaign to Blackhawks fans as well. Sounds to me like the Predators organization are a bunch of haters.

The Predators organization has officially declared war with Chicago Blackhawks fans.

How to Get a State-of-the-Art Home Basketball Court

bulls home court

Become the Chicago Bears Head Coach and buy a sweet new house in Winnetka equipped with your very own Bulls basketball court. This is awesome and I want one.

Marc Trestman’s $2.94 million home also includes 6.5 baths, “a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a cherry wood library, a third-floor loft and a lower level with a movie theater, [and] a wine cellar” according the the Chicago Tribune.

Trestman’s main focus is obviously on the Bears regaining a top spot in the NFC this season, but if you have a sick basketball court in your house you better have a perfected jump shot and an excellent free throw percentage. 🙂

Biggest NBA Fashion Faux Pas

russell-westbrook-kevin-durant-lebron-james-dwyane-wade-glassesToday’s professional athletes are not only remarkably talented at their given sport, but have also become legitimate celebrities. They attend the best parties (on the off season of course) and eat at the finest restaurants, but these pros have also taken interest in their overall fashion sense and ultimately an extension of their personal “brand.”

Specifically, NBA players have snagged the spot of most “fashion forward” when it comes to professional athletes. Because the NBA playoffs are broadcast nationally, it is the time of year most eyes are on these players vying for the National Championship. The NBA playoffs have also become a time I like to refer to as “NBA Fashion Month.” This is where we get a true look at the boundaries these guys are willing to push.

Becoming a trend setter is something any fashionista strives to achieve, but sometimes these NBA fashion mavens push the envelope just a little too far. Here are some of the NBA’s biggest fashion misses.

Man-pris:

dwyane.wade_man pris

It’s the second round of the NBA playoffs and DWade comes strolling in to take on the Heat’s rivaled Chicago Bulls. The camera is zoomed in on his upper half where he’s looking casually cool, rocking some lightly shaded sunglasses and a stylish double breasted blazer. THEN the camera zooms and out we notice that Dwayne Wade is wearing capris and we have a solid look at the man’s ankles. Rule of thumb – Man-pris are not and will never be sexy.

Westbrook manpriI had thought DWade’s man-pri mania was just a phase or perhaps he had washed a pair of dry clean only pants, but then the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook shows up on Instagram with this number. I couldn’t contain myself. He wore this outfit to an actual event he attended with his mother.

Grandpa Sweaters:

LeBron-James-searches-for-answer-on-deplorable-sweater2-594x329There must be something in the water in Miami because this palm tree-type grandpa sweater Lebron wore for a post-game press conference is rough. The fitted sweater would be fine had it been a nice solid red, instead it has a very floral print on it.

Carmelo-Anthony-2013-nba-playoffs-fashion-game-4-round-2A little farther up the east coast, the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony rocked an equally grandpa sweater for a different post-game interview with the press. He even accessorized with a grandpa hat.

Eccentric Prints:

Russell Westbrook LOVES prints. He loves print polos, print button ups, print pants – you name it and Westbrook wants it to have a print on it. Most of the time they’re not prints you’d want to find anywhere other than a shower curtain.

dwade floral printDWade strikes again and this time it looks like he’s wearing some type of curtain he found in a Cuban abuela’s house down in Miami. Aye dios mio.

Pleather:

Harden PleatherPleather may have made it’s way onto the runways this past spring season, but that doesn’t mean we want to see it on professional athletes. James Harden played like a monster in Houston last  season however the brown leather patches don’t work with the black frames and black beard. 

Justin BieberHonorable mention to “NBA Fan” Justin Bieber and his pleather shirt he wore on the sidelines of the playoffs this season – YIKES.

The Murse:

murseA man purse – more commonly known as a “murse” is not an easy accessory to pull off. Purses are highly feminine, but sometimes men have things they need to bring with them that won’t fit in their tightly fitted pants pockets. Unfortunately, Dwyane Wade’s red murse does not make the cut of acceptable man bags.

lebron-man-purseAs teammates on a championship basketball team, it’s only proper if King James also sports a murse when heading to the locker room before games. I don’t know if it’s because these guys are extra huge, but carrying a tiny little purse seems extra hysterical. I would invest in a designer gym-bag guys.

The Way to a Woman’s Heart:

GQ has the right idea for these extremely fit physiques – stick to the suits boys. There is nothing a woman loves more than a man in a fitted suit (the pocket squares don’t hurt either).

Bulls Announce 2013-2014 Regular Season Schedule

It’s official Bulls fans, our men in red will kick off their 2013-2014 season on October 29th in the exact same place last season’s playoff run was snapped – American Airlines Arena against the defending Champion Miami Heat. Clear your calendars ladies, it doesn’t get any better than this!

It was just over a week ago that Derrick Rose self-proclaimed he is the best player in the league and now he has the perfect opportunity to back himself up. To be the best you have to beat the best, and right now the reigning MVP Lebron James is sitting atop his NBA throne just waiting to be challenged.

We say, bring it King James.

The season opener won’t be Rose’s official “return” as he is slated to play during the Bulls’ preseason, but all eyes will be on the point guard to see how he matches up against the defending champs. The night will also feature the Heat accepting their championship rings and hoisting their banner – maybe tune in a few minutes late.

The NBA released the full 2013-2014 season schedules on Tuesday afternoon and the Bulls will be showcased quite a bit making 33 appearances on national broadcasts.

Games to Watch this Season:

October 31: Bulls will host the New York Knicks in their Halloween home opener at the United Center at 7 p.m.

December 25th: For the fourth straight year Chicago will participate in the NBA’s Christmas Day festivities facing a very revamped Brooklyn Nets team (Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce traded east coast cities over the off season). This will be the team’s first meeting since a battered Bulls team booted a healthy Nets team from the playoffs during the postseason.

March 7th – 17th: This Bulls homestand is a doozy. They take on five playoff teams over a 10 day span. You’ll see the Memphis Grizzilies, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Oklahoma City Thunder. I’d recommend scoring some tickets to witness the action in person!

Buckle up Bulls fans! It’s going to be an exciting season so make sure you’re ready for the wild ride.

Say Goodbye to the “Madhouse on Madison”

IMG_1294

If you were partial to the “Madhouse on Madison” sign while watching your Chicago Bulls or Chicago Blackhawks you’re not going to be happy about this news. Reports confirm the sign has been removed at the United Center.

Bulls vice president of branding and communications, Susan Goodenow, explained the sign was removed as part of an initiative to improve “fan experience” at the United Center – a project two years in the making. Instead there will be a LED signage system to “heighten” in-arena entertainment and messaging. Sounds more like an additional opportunity for corporate sponsorship to advertise through the stadium.

The Madhouse sign we know and love was preserved for future use. So LAME.
