Put your heart into it

Chicago athletes show their romantic side

February 13, 2014

Just because you're a jock doesn't mean you can't get in touch with your feelings. With Valentine's Day upon us, it's a great time for Chicago athletes to take a break from their ultra-competitive personas and give us a peek at their romantic side. Namely in the form of: "What's your favorite 'chick flick'?"

.

Derrick Rose, Bulls

"'Love & Basketball.' I think that was the perfect movie to combine with basketball. I think the actors they had in the movie were great. They did a great job putting the story together."

.

Joakim Noah, Bulls

"I'm not big chick flick kind of guy. I've seen 'The Notebook' a few times. Heavy, heavy movie."

Jimmy Butler, Bulls

"'The Notebook.' I do like that movie. I used to watch that a lot. I don't watch it too much anymore, but it's one of my favorites.

.

Kirk Hinrich, Bulls

"My favorite chick flick is probably 'The Break-Up.' I'm a big Vince Vaughn fan and he's just funny. And it's in Chicago."

.

D.J. Augustin, Bulls

"'Love & Basketball.' I can relate to it. I'm a basketball player but my wife never played. We both love that movie. It's romantic. It's everything you could want in a chick flick."

.

Nazr Mohammed, Bulls

"I've seen almost all (chick flicks), but I'd go with 'Love & Basketball.' It's definitely a great romantic movie and it's about basketball."

.

Taj Gibson, Bulls

"'Sex and the City,' and don't tell anybody I told you that. It's about love and there are a whole bunch of things that don't really happen in real life. My mom really loves it, so I started watching it with her and came to love it too."

.

Robbie Gould, Bears

"'Hitch.' I like the actors and the storyline and it always makes me laugh."

.

Chris Rolfe, Fire

"'Hitch' because not only does it exemplify that unrealistic 'love' idea that Hollywood has created, but it also makes guys like me believe that they have what it takes. Oh, and Eva Mendes doesn't hurt the appeal."
