After Dennis Rodman’s meltdown on CNN, Jimmy Kimmel was nice enough to break down the Worm’s speech and attempt to explain to us what Kim Jong-Un’s propaganda puppet was trying to say while embarrassing the hell out of Charles Smith and Vin Baker (thankfully for Doug Christie he wasn’t in the frame unlike our friend Guy Dupuy who had to sit right behind Rodman).
What Jimmy and most of the public didn’t get to see yet was the actual game that Rodman and his crew of ex players were in North Korea for to begin with. The US team lost the exhibition game in front of a crowd of 14,000 that was played in honor of Kim Jong-Un’s birthday but the real loser again was Dennis Rodman who did his best Marilyn Monroe impersonation by singing “Happy Birthday” to his psychotic friend.
This morning, Rodman did apologize and stated that alcohol had a little to do with his embarrassing CNN appearance.
”I want to apologize,” Rodman said Thursday. ”I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates. My dreams of basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It’s not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed. It’s not an excuse, it’s just the truth.”
Rodman also apologized to Kenneth Bae since it was obvious he had no idea who Bae was.
”I’m very sorry. At this point I should know better than to make political statements. I’m truly sorry.”
