I'm in Chicago finishing up watching the @drose documentary. Wow!!! What memories. A beautiful person and an unbelievable player. He's a servant leader with a great heart and you get to see what makes Derrick so special throughout this. If you're didn’t see it the first time, make sure you watch the replay at 10 p.m. ET at watchstadium.com/live.
He accompanied Mayor Richard M. Daley to China. He has been sued, arrested and ejected from games. He has also topped the Forbes list of the most popular sports mascots in America. ⠀
Have you lived as much as Benny the Bull has? ⠀
Seven people, and countless understudies, have slipped into Benny’s shoes since he debuted on Oct. 17, 1969. As he turns 50, we look into how Benny — arguably the most popular mascot in professional sports — was created, how he has evolved and what it takes to don the beloved red suit. ⠀
Behind the scenes, in the bowels of the United Center, Benny remains silent, always the entertainer, a true bullshtick artist. Like a theater kid, he is always on. He is surrounded, at all times, by an efficient trio of Bulls employees in matching warmups called Team Benny who, depending how you see it, are enablers or members of a benign cult. Because Benny is forbidden to remove his head in public, they have worked out hand signals to communicate. Only in his dressing room is Benny allowed to speak. ⠀
After 50 years on the job, Benny has grown secretive, and corporate, and wildly successful. He has gone from a sideshow attraction to — after yet another pitiful Bulls season — the main attraction. But it hasn’t always been this way. Click the link in our bio for the full story. (Photos by Chris Sweda & Armando Sanchez / Chicago Tribune | @mandophotos) #bulls#chicagobulls#bennythebull
