PLAYERS: Dennis Rodman
After announcing his new friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, retired NBA star Dennis Rodman found himself in the crossfire yet once again, after reports started to surface of him dissing three U.S Navy servicemen yesterday. Three sailors in their early 20s where attending the U.S Open championship at International Polo Club Palm Beach yesterday when Rodman refused to take a picture with the young men showcasing their white uniforms. “These kids were pretty excited about Rodman being there,” said a spywitness. “They went up to him and he just walked away when they asked for a photo. He didn’t even say ‘hi’ to them or anything. He just kept walking.” Said one of the servicemen: “He blew us off!” “There were quite a few people who were unhappy that Rodman was there,” said the spywitness. “His stance on North Korea has been rubbing people the wrong way.” The event came in the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombings, where the venue was filed with red-white-and-blue stars, as everyone showed their patriots spirit. Talk about bad timing Rodman. Luckily two of the three sailors found a lucky girl who didn’t refuse to take a picture with them.
