Dennis Rodman Finally Meets Father After 42 Years Of Seperation

Dennis Rodman is a little bit eccentric but his life hasn’t been easy.  He is 51 years old but hadn’t seen his dad in 42 years.  That changed at an exhibition game in the Philippines as Rodman met his dad after 42 years of being apart.

“I haven’t seen my father in 42 years, but that’s him sitting right there,” Rodman said, according to the Philipine Daily Inquirer. The newspaper reported that Rodman pointed to the area of the stands where his father, Philander Rodman Jr., was sitting. Rodman’s father was wearing a cap with the words “Yes, Dennis Rodman is my son” on it.

Rodman’s dad might be a man of legends.  The man has 29 kids by 16 different women, so it would be easy enough to not see one of the kids for a long time.  He originally tried to meet Dennis in 2006, but that never materialized.  His dad had been living in the country for about 50 years, which would also explain why he never saw his son.

As weird as this entire thing sounds, it is actually pretty touching.  Nothing like a family reunion, albeit an extremely weird one, to brighten the day of people everywhere.  If Dennis Rodman and his dad can make up after 42 years apart, I think almost any child can repair an issue with a parent.

I have no idea how many more times that Rodman will end meeting his dad but at least he got to see him again.  42 years apart is a long time but at least it finally happened.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
