There's Now A Bedroom Overlooking The Chicago Bulls Court

By Jim Bochnowski in News on Mar 30, 2015 6:10PM

Growing up outside of Chicago in the 1990s, I had a crazy dream about becoming best friends with a member of the Chicago Bulls, and of course, to gain access to every corner of their hometown arena. Now that dream is so close to becoming a reality.

A contest by Airbnb promises a special evening with the Chicago Bulls, hosted by Scottie Pippen. The real selling point here, however, is the sleepover: they've transformed a suite at the United Center into a luxurious bedroom, which comes "complete with glorious floor-to-ceiling home court views," a dining area, living room, internet, bathrobes... you get the idea.

To win, simply write an essay describing why you should get to spend the night at the United Center (luckily, I think I have one in my parents' house from when I was 7 years old), and you can win a personal tour of the United Center, free tickets to the April 11 game against the Philadelphia 76ers, an hour long, one-on-one practice session with Pippen, along with a night in that executive suite.

Check out all the details and finer print here... hold on, there's a dealbreaker.

"Absolutely no dunking on Scottie Pippen. (But good luck trying.)"
