Sunday night’s dance with the Chicago Bulls, the third and fourth episodes of ESPN’s tell-all docuseries, focused in on Dennis Rodman’s role within the team and Rodman’s personal life outside of basketball. You probably remember a lot was made of Rodman’s non-basketball antics and adventures as they were happening back then, but now we know Michael Jordan had to drag Rodman’s ass out of bed to get him to re-join the team after a midseason “vacation.” Rodman’s fun ends when we see him at practice in his pajamas.

If you weren’t with the Bengals when they were 2-14 don’t jump on the bandwagon when they’re 4-12!
(Just kidding, the Bengals offense is going to be fun to watch.)
Spilled Tea: Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari are getting divorced.

Clayton & Crume is now making face shields… a lot of them.
Our friends at Clayton & Crume, a leather goods business in Louisville, saw an opportunity to help provide face shields to healthcare workers around the state.
