According to President Obama, he will welcome the Chicago Bulls as world champs into the White House before he leaves office. From Grantland: “BS: Over the last five years, how many times have you envisioned welcoming the world champion Chicago Bulls to the White House? Obama: ‘Every year. And it hasn’t happened yet, but it will happen. BS: It will happen? You’re like Joe Namath — you’re guaranteeing it. Obama: ‘Well, I’ve got another five years here and — [laughter] —’ BS: You’re guaranteeing that, too. [Laughter.] Obama: — ‘somewhere along the line my Bulls are going to come through here. Absolutely.’ BS: You’ll probably cry. You’ll well up a little bit. Obama: ‘I probably won’t do the whole Jordan-hugging-the-ball thing.’ BS: Right. Him lying on the ground. [Laughter.] Obama: ‘That would be a little extreme. I’ll be pretty happy, though.”
