When Michelle Harris, the Bulls' director of entertainment, has the floor, she means business. "Buckle up and be ready," Harris told the 225 estimated women who came to the United Center on Saturday in hopes of becoming a member of the Luvabulls. They hail from different backgrounds - teacher, account executive and personal trainer, to name a few. But they all have one goal: to land one of the 20 open spots on the Bulls' dance team, which is in its 35 t h season. The first rounds of cuts were made this weekend, and the squad will be finalized later this week.

Considering she'd just spent several weeks preparing for it, the seven minutes Ashley Piepenbrink spent kicking, twirling and dancing in front of judges in her bid to join the Luvabulls felt more like two seconds. The 24-year-old from Wrigleyville hired a personal trainer to help her lose 3 inches off her waist and spent much of her free time practicing dance moves. But when one of the judges came backstage to announce who would stay for the second round, Piepenbrink's number was not called.

They call it the Madhouse on Madison, and it's home to two teams charging toward the playoffs. But which is the better United Center atmosphere: a Bulls game or a Hawks game?   Bulls Even if we're going on relative temperature alone, the Bulls win this one hands down. Just try to tell me you'd rather be shivering in the nosebleeds than watching Benny the Bull perform his magic. Yes, our mascot does get a little handsy with the Luvabulls from time to time, but I trust them to know when to order him to back off. Add the full-out glory of watching players like...

Coaches from Bulls opponents continue to be impressed with how the team has played despite injuries to key players, including reigning league MVP Derrick Rose. "When you have a group and a guy like Derrick Rose who is your leader, who is your hardest worker ... that's infectious," said Toronto coach Dwane Casey, whose team lost to the Bulls in overtime Saturday. "And [Coach]Tom [Thibodeau] and that staff have done a great job growing that team and having mental toughness to be where they are now. " Other coaches - including Philadelphia's Doug Collins, Indiana's Frank Vogel and Boston's Doc...

Only one NBA team played an afternoon game on Presidents' Day. It was the Bulls, of course. Maybe Obama himself ordered it. In what was also Derrick Rose's return from bask spasms that sidelined him for five games, the Bulls beat the pesky Atlanta Hawks 90-79. Since America used Monday to celebrate Abraham Lincoln and George Washington's birthdays - you had cake, right? - what better way to break down the game than to assemble a presidential cabinet based on some of the Bulls' results.

So what if Derrick Rose wasn't in uniform for the Bulls on Wednesday? As any Cubs fan will tell you, season openers are all about optimism, no matter who's playing or what the long-term expectations are. Even without their best player, that first smell of sweaty 7-footers is intoxicating. Er, not so much that, we guess, but there were plenty of firsts worth mentioning as the Bulls beat Sacramento. . FIRST QUARTER First Luvabulls sighting We get a glimpse of the cheerleaders as the Bulls lineups are announced.

Even with the Bulls and Brooklyn playing Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday, we had football and on the brain. Maybe it's because the Bulls have been black and blue all season, or because Mel Kiper's hair helmet is unavoidable. Whatever the case, we turned our NFL Draft goggles toward Bulls-Nets, and here's what it looked like: FIRST QUARTER Downside: Carlos Boozer collects a foul and a double-dribble violation in the first minute. Who gets called for double dribble in the NBA?
