Well, this is dissapointing.
Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls yelled, “f*** you fa***ot,” at a fan during last night’s game against the Miami Heat. Kobe Bryant was fined heavily for uttering the same phrase in a game.
The Bulls center has already issued an apology:
"I apologize. The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I said some things that I shouldn't have said. I was frustrated and I don't mean no disrespect to anybody. I just got caught up."
He needs to pay a hefty fine, and players need to stop giving LAME excuses for the hurtful things they say!

Bullfighters in Ecuador are seeing red over a ballot referendum that, if passed, will ban the traditional killing of bulls at the end of bullfights.
Ecuadorian voters will are voting on a bill that would make it illegal to kill animals for entertainment.
That might be good for the bulls, but matadors like Diego Rivas fear the ban will negatively impact their finances. Beyond that, people say killing the bull is an integral part of the tradition, and eliminating it would be a travesty to the sport.
Members of Ecuador's matador community staged a protest on Wednesday in front of the Carondelet presidential palace in Quito in all their bullfighting regalia — with one important addition: tape over their mouths to demonstrate that they are not being heard.
The President of Ecuador's Union of Bullfighters, believes eliminating the killing of bulls in bullfights would be a death blow to the 97,000 families he estimates make at least some of their income off bullfighting.

Looks like Michael Jordan is playing favorites with his old team!
His pick for MVP of the year is Chicago Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose.
”He's the MVP for the season. He deserves it. He's playing that well. And if he doesn't get it, you'll see how I felt a lot of years.”
Hmm, humble much?
Rose is averaging 24.5 points per game, but who knows if he’ll get it or not.

What is wrong with people?!
Fourteen pitbulls were rescued from the 6th floor apartment of a burning building in the Bronx Tuesday morning.
Just one dog was injured in an apparent accident that occurred as the animal was being transported out of the building. That dog suffered a small gash on his noise, but the injury was not serious.
The building's super didn't say much about the owner of the pitbulls, revealing "He has a lot of dogs but he takes care of them."
When the landlord was asked what he thought the owner, a black man in his late 30s, was doing with so many pitbulls, he replied, "To tell you the truth I don't know. Maybe he was selling them or using them to fight."
A source stated that the dogs would likely be taken to the ASPCA facility in Upper Manhattan for medical evaluation to see if they had been mistreated. The FDNY is also investigating the cause of the blaze in which two members sustained minor injuries.
