Former NBA superstar ball player Dennis Rodman must be really bored or seriously missing the spotlight. Today he joined several members of the legendary Harlem Globe Trotters on a visit to North Korea. They are the first U.S. Reps to meet young Leader Kim Jong-un, which makes this a completely bizarre combination.
According to Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince, he thought this would be a great opportunity. He told the Associated Press; “When I discussed with Dennis the invite to go to North Korea and meet with Kim Jong and the Korean national basketball team as part of a documentary for HBO, he knew it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a fun shoot around playing basketball and would give him the chance to speak directly to Kim Jong that the only way to go is with peace not war.” Say what???
Well, apparently the leader of North Korea and his dad are huge basketball fans. Seeing that Jong is still close to puberty (LOL!), this would be an exciting meeting. It is a huge step for their country since they are banned from using the internet, watching television, and are essentially cut off from the world.
How insane to think they are meeting Rodman and he will represent our country? We are all doomed. On the other hand, maybe it is a good thing they are meeting a CRAZY American. It may just prevent North Korea from doing something stupid.
Let’s all take a moment to THANK the “The Worm”. He may just be our Secret Weapon. Check out his latest tweets!
