Since when did Dennis Rodman manage to steal blog headlines like a fat kid stealing an extra cupcake at a birthday party?
The Worm has wormed his way into the blogosphere and for some reason he isn’t going away. Not even after he got kicked out of a New York City hotel bar on Sunday.
This one might just be the most ridiculous, however.
According to TMZ, Rodman is now the self-proclaimed peace-bearer between the United States and North Korea. If it sounds ridiculous, it’s because it is.
Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip back to North Korea, TMZ has learned … and his goal … Rodman wants to broker lasting peace between the United States and the DPRK.
If that isn’t enough, apparently The Worm wants nothing more than to create peace between the two countries.
Rodman’s publicist tells TMZ, for all The Worm’s life accomplishments — the Basketball Hall of Fame, rebounding records, defensive player awards — the NBA legend says securing peace between Kim Jong-un and Barack Obama would be his greatest honor. Ya think?
The rep says Rodman wants to use his newly-minted friendship with Kim Jong-un to set the stage for a peace deal, convincing the dictator to engage in talks with Obama. He plans to return to North Korea in the next 6 months to host another kids basketball clinic.
Oh yeah, and if you cared, Rodman is sorry for his comments recently on the ruthless dictator and his deceased relatives, Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung (the father of the utilitarian state as we know it).
And when he goes back — Rodman will be a LOT more careful about calling Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung “great leaders” … in fact, he wants to apologize for making the comment in the first place.
According to the rep, Rodman regrets complimenting the former dictators without fully understanding the extent of their human rights violations. The rep says Rodman is deeply sorry for offending anyone.
We would love to be a fly on the wall in David Stern’s office when he catches wind of Rodman’s latest escapades.
