A way cool perk of being an NBA star. And the most awesome minor-league stunt this year

Like it’s not cool enough already to be Derrick Rose, the superstar point guard of the Chicago Bulls.

Word has gotten out that Mr. Rose is a huge candy fan. Like, Willy Wonka-level lover of candy. Particularly, dude likes Skittles. So the Skittles people (they’re owned by Mars) found out and built Rose a customized Skittles machine for his house, and have promised to fill it for the next three years.

Seriously, how cool is that? If I had a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup machine in my house, I might never go outside.

I hope the Bulls’ team dentist knows where Rose lives. He may be over there a lot.

**The best ideas in American sports come from the marketing and promo departments of minor league baseball teams. I really believe that. These people come up with such creative stuff, year in and year out.

Check out this ridiculously-strange idea from the Savannah (Ga.) Sand Gnats. They let one lucky fan set a professional stuntman on fire before he ran the bases at a recent game.

How cool is that? Being encouraged to set another human being on fire! So jealous of this guy:

  1. If I had a Reese’s PB cup vending machine in my house, I would weigh 400 pounds—especially if someone else was filling it for free!
