You know, just when you think you have a fix on what a team can and can't do BOOM you get surprised. A big CONGRATS to the Bulls for delivering a good old fashion whoop ass. The fact that this team is still my favorite is not a shocker but the fact that they handed GS an ass kicking truly brings a smile to my face. Read the following for UPI and tell me if this wasn't a good game.
