"Bulls Totally 80s" Inspires a Yet-To-Be-Named Chicago Supergroup


Sports reporter, sarcastic smartass, music lover, funny gal.

If last-minute victories over the Cleveland Cavs don't get you fired up about this year's Chicago Bulls squad, maybe this video will:

I'm sure you, like me, thought nothing could beat the smooth vocal stylings of Joakim Noah--until you heard the lyrical love letter that is Luol Deng singing "Fame." Kirk Hinrich's collar-up look only adds to the poignancy of his heart-wrenching ballad and Derrick Rose's uncanny ability to sing without opening his mouth almost qualifies him for his own Comedy Central show.    

Watching the Bulls croon the classics brought to mind another one of my favorite Chicago singers--the one, the only, Kris Versteeg:

Now if only we could find a way to bring all of Chicago's athletes together for one big sing-a-long. Just picture it: Jay Cutler on lead vocals, Patrick Kane, Lance Briggs and Ryan Dempster forming a one-man rhythm section, and Joakim Noah, Gordan Beckham and John Salmons holding down the bass line.

1985's "We Are The World" raised over $63 million for humanitarian causes, just imagine how much money this Chicago supergroup could make. Enough to buy the Bears a new coach. Enough to keep Kane, Toews and Keith on the Blackhawks for years to come. Enough to cover costs of Ozzie Guillen's sensitivity training for the next decade and Tommie Harris' fines for at least the rest of this season. Maybe even enough to buy the Cubs a World Series.

Record producers, label execs, if you're out there, make it happen.

Sadly, the Bulls didn't think to do this fourteen years ago. Nothing could be more heartbreaking than Luc Longley ever-so-gently singing "Up Where We Belong". Nothing.
