Bulls First!

Bullshooter wants to know what's up with the lack of TYI content these days? The answer is simple, my friends.

Due to the tremendous uncertainty w/r/t the Ben Gordon negotiations, TYI has temporarily suspsended its blogging campaign, in order to make sure that the Bulls and Ben Gordon can get together and get this thing done. Now is not the time for partisan bickering over whether we can get a taller, more "prototypical" shooting guard or whether we should be panicking over the prospect of Kirk Hinrich and/or Larry Hughes as the starting two guard. Folks, without the services of Ben Gordon, the Bulls are facing an imminent offensive---what's the word? oh, that's right---meltdown and massive scoring crunch, with some analysts fearing a return to the Great Scoring Depression of 1998-99. Until that fact is acknowledged (and remedied), there's really no need for any unseemly politicking that one might normally find on a Bulls blog. TYI is currently working with both parties on a multi-million dollar offensive bailout plan, and we believe any blogging before that plan has been agreed to would be downright unpatriotic to the millions of hard-working Bulls fans out there, waiting for this to get done.

(OTOH, I do have another post idea in the hopper, and might get around to writing the damn thing one of these days.)

Also, because Del Negro is being shielded from the press and not taking questions and Paxson is flat out lying about everything under the sun, we refuse to cover this bullshit.

We're all part of vast Pistons fans conspiracy anyway!

p.s. Seriously, go google Keating 5.

I see the quandary. On the one hand you're faced with bottomless depression. But I would argue that the other option represents a return to the stagflation of 2002-2003. Mediocrity got the bulls nowhere, and is in some respects responsible for the current dilemma. No, the answer is to throw all the bums out and start from scratch. While he may not be ready for it, I believe we should hitch our wagons to DRose and let the chips fall where they may. When caught between a rock and a hard place the smart man always mixes his metaphors (shakes, not stirs), pulls the bandaid off quickly, and chooses what's behind door number 3.

When are you guys going to have training camp? The season is around the corner and it's time for you guys to get back into game shape...

And our summer-long national nightmare is over and no post about BG's signing?
