Perhaps you have seen this melancholy photo of injured Chicago point guard Derrick Rose sitting dejectedly, all by his lonesome, in a luxury suite in United Center taking in Game 2 of the Bulls-Hawks playoff series. A heartbreaking image, to be sure, especially for Bulls fans, even more so in light of the outcome of the game, which Chicago lost 109-92, evening up the series.
Which is why it’s a shame that somehow wheels weren’t set in motion for this dejected-looking Bulls fan — horns and all, defiant in his Derrick Rose jersey — to be invited up to the luxury suite to pass the time with Rose. I’m sure they would have had a lot to talk about. And if not, they could at least have sat in silence, sharing a moment or two, united in their respective solitude.
Sad Bulls Fan + Derrick Rose = Misery Loves Company. Yeah.
