Though Derrick Rose got medically cleared to play more than a month ago, he has still yet to do so, which understandably frustrates Chicago Bulls fans. What we can't understand is why Matthew Thompson, 25, of Peoria, Illinois believes he's entitled to damages.
Thompson claims that, by refusing to play, Rose has caused him emotional distress and mental breakdowns, which have led to obesity issues. Essentially, Matthew Thompson believes Derrick Rose is financially responsible for his fatness.
Are we to believe that if Derrick Rose were playing, this Chicago sports fan would be in amazing shape? When the Bulls were winning titles in the '90s their fans weren't exactly celebrating by chowing down on tofu. If Chris Farley and the Super Fans were around, they'd surely describe this as "Da Bull s#!%."
Matthew Thompson, you've broken Guy Code for creating a public record of your emotional eating, and for suing the best Chicago Bull since Michael Jordan.
