This Brutal Chicago Winter Has Beaten Joakim Noah


The Chicago Bulls exceeded expectations and turned in a tremendous season despite missing the snake-bitten Derrick Rose. Winter on the shores of Lake Michigan has also exceeded expectations in its ability to drive everyone past their breaking point.

Even Joakim Noah.

The big man was riding high after his team’s victory over Orlando on Monday night. He shared his spring optimism with a reporter, who dutifully informed it was snowing outside.

Noah reacted thusly:

We feel you, Joakim. When I bounded down my steps this morning to see a snow-covered yard, my ability to love anything in this world immediately evaporated. It was like Christmas morning, only this time your parents forgot the gifts and blamed Santa for getting busted for violating OSHA standards.
