ADIDAS DERRICK ROSE ROY CELEBRATION EVENT

Saturday I had the opportunity to meet Derrick Rose in downtown at a signing event, and it was awesome! It was pretty funny because I was all nervous when I met him, but he was a really nice guy, so it all worked out. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance for a Q and A with him, but I did get to meet him, shake his hand, take some pictures, and get an autograph, so I was in heaven.

The Event itself was put together by Adidas at their Sports Performance Store, which is located inside the Water Tower Place. Derrick signed a ton of autographs and took pictures with his fans there. Rose also signed a jersey, which they framed and put up in the store. The Event also featured a raffle for which the winner got a signed jersey too. It was well organized, and definitely was a lot of fun for everyone in attendance.

It was really great seeing all of these people show up to meet him, and show their love for him and our Bullies. It just makes me happy that the Bulls are relevant again in the Chi. I haven't seen fans this excited since the Jordan years, so it feels good.

Anyways, check out some of these pictures and a little clip of video from the Event...





Thanks a ton to Michael and Cathleen from Hill and Knowlton for having DSS there too. Definitely appreciate it. I know this sounds weird, but I'm still so excited that I got to meet him! Hopefully I get to really sit down and talk to him soon. GO DROSE! GO BULLS!!

I'm so jealous! I really wanted to go but I had to study for a midterm that weekend. That was probably my last chance to see him too before I leave the Chi... :(
