Bill Clinton, Chris Webber, Space Jam, and Legos: An Assortment of Articles from the Web

Chris Webber’s mental lapse during the ’93 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship game arguably cost the Fab Five, Ann Arbor, and the state of Michigan a national title.  Presumably, it was in light of this failure that President Clinton felt compelled to reach out to Webber.  While he is regarded as one of the most savvy politician of our time, Bill Clinton showed some more of the empathy that helped make him a two-term president.
Like our President, I remember feeling so terrible for Webber, despite pulling for North Carolina in the game.  I also wonder if that incident was just a sign of things to come (in terms of Webber’s inability to elevate his play near the end of games).  Or if it was the event that caused him to shy away and fold under pressure late in games during his NBA career.

Another 90’s gem, this article ambitiously set out to ground the complexities of the box office hit “Space Jam,” with a Hollinger-esque analysis of the box-scores from the final game.  It is a fun take on a movie I watched countless times; a movie that featured the mega-hit “I Believe I can Pe..” sorry, I mean to say, the mega-hit “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly:
