TEAMS: Chicago Bulls

Via NESN:

The Bulls beat the Pacers on Saturday, but the most winning moment of the night didn’t have anything to do with basketball.

That title would go to the reunion of Navy Lt. Kyle Hanford and his mother, Sandy, during a break in the action at the United Center. Hanford, who hadn’t seen his family in nearly two years, arranged the moment with help from the USO and the Bulls when he was granted a six-day leave from his station on the USS George Washington, serving in Japan.

Mom thought she had earned a chance to shoot a half-court shot while blindfolded, only to remove the blindfold and find her son standing at midcourt.
