I just wrecked my trusty mid-80s, Falcon-brand bike in Wicker Park—which seems to be the only place I ever eat concrete—buckling the frame and rendering it useless forever. I’m bruised and battered, but alive. That’s a plus, I guess. The Bulls play a do-or-die game five tonight at the United Center against the Sixers (tip is at 8:30 PM). They’re bruised and battered (a lot), but still alive. Also a plus, if you’re into positive spins.

In light of the above facts, I’ve watched the below video of Michael Jordan’s top ten buzzer beaters four times in a row. Not only does it help dull the sting of my mild injuries but it has upped my spirits in anticipation of tonight’s game. (It also makes me feel kind of sorry for Jazz fans.)

Please enjoy the soothing sounds of LL Cool J’s “Momma Said Knock You Out” as 23 casually drains jumpers.
