Today’s Sign the End is Nigh
The Hall of Famer’s book, “Dennis The Wild Bull,” came out today, and fans will immediately recognize Rodman’s influence. The large red bull on the cover has flowing red hair, two nose rings, a tattoo and red stubble under his chin.
“They’ll see me, literally see me. They’ll say, ‘Wow, this is just like him,’” Rodman said.
And he deals with the same issues.
Rodman, known as much for his wacky looks and lifestyle off the court as his considerable success on it, said the purpose of the book is simple.
“More than anything, I just want little kids today just to understand: Ain’t no matter what you do in life — be different, rich or poor, man — guess what? It’s OK to be who you are pretty much and you’ll be accepted,” Rodman said.
Co-written with Dustin Warburton, the book tells the story of Dennis, a bull who is taken away from his family and forced to live with other bulls in a rodeo. Though he looks nothing like them, they come to accept him and they all become friends.
Rodman admits he is hoping the book sells well enough to help pay off the half-million dollars in back child support he was ordered to pay last month from an Orange Co. (California) judge.
