Cancel that order for 21,216 burgers to go.
The Bulls' Joakim Noah drew the wrath of his coach, the opposing Orlando Magic and a packed United Center house when he hoisted up an off-target three-pointer in the closing seconds of a 99-93 victory. Seems the patrons get a free hamburger when the home team scores 100.
"I just got caught up in the moment, and I was trying to get the people a Big Mac," Noah told ESPNchicago.com. "... Not only did I take the shot and miss the shot, we didn't even get the Big Mac."
Not that the odds were in his favor. Noah is 0 for 5 in career three-point attempts.
... At Fark.com: "Michael Vick blames the media for speculation he might be benched, despite the fact that in the first six games he's thrown eight interceptions, lost five fumbles and bitten two mailmen."
... From tweeter @RolandSMartin: "Breaking news: Pres. Obama to travel to Alabama Monday to comfort a grief-stricken state."
