In "Cyber house rules", when Bender has just adopted the kids, and is walking into O'Zorgnax's pub, there is a large banner in the window, reading: "Your St. Rodman's Day headquarters". Anyway, I just thought it was intresting that Dennis Rodman has his own day in the future smile

Well, they put Coolio on one of the coins, so a Dennis Rodman day seems in order.

Who's Dennis Rodman?

Yes, but Coolio did do a voice over for Kwanza-Bot didn't he? What has Dennis Rodman ever done for Futurama?

Dennis Rodman? I'm afraid I don't know who that is, would anyone care to educate Teral and myself?

Dennis Rodman? He was a basketball player for The Bulls in, like, 1995 or something? He would change his look before every game. One of my favourite players. For those interested, check out the movie "As bad as I wanna be". Documentary about him, if I'm not mistaken. Also, check out the page above.

Wow! People who DON'T know who Dennis Rodman is? Damn! He is quite the character, accused of being a space alien by many, many people. And he could have been more than a decent player if he had cut down on "the good life"... And his hair- you gotta love his hair. And his walk.

I have no clue whatsoever about basketball. I only know that the ball goes through the hoop, you get 1 point for dunking, two inside that line and three outside. And not too many steps... bur Rodman is a quirky character.

It's two points for dunking.

You get one point for making a foul shot, though.

I have a good escuse, I think basketball is boring. Hence I have no desire to acquire knowledge about the sport, the rules or the players.

Now hockey, there's a mans game.

Agreed; although college basketball is far superior to the NBA, it's still not up to the level of hockey.

I have never, and I mean NEVER watched a basketball game, but what little I know of the rules comes from school. But Mr. Rodman has had cameos in some funny series. (The only one I can think of right now is 3rd Rock From The Sun).

Staircase-handball-wrestle-mauling... THAT'S a man's game... (I invented it in collaboration with a friend)

Dennis Rodman is more famous for what he does outside of the arena than for his playing. He's one of those celebrities who tries realy really hard to be a "bad boy," and therfore winds up in the gossip pages more than the sports pages. He dies his hair funky colors, has multiple piercings/tatoos, once wore a wedding dress to a news conference, married Carmen Electra, etc. In America, it's almost impossible to find someone who doesn't know Rodman. (and Futurama is written by Americans, so that's the reference.)

So the joke is that he probably wouldn't be Sainted by a church. Which is weird, because Rodman's proven to be alive in "A Taste of Freedom." His head is in one of the Supreme Court Judge jars.

Nah, hockeys the best game. It's not very popular here though.  And people outside the US aren't likely to hear about some US basketballer for acting weird, we do have our own sports to watch too.   wink

Rounders is about the only bristish sport which hasn't been transported to the rest of the Commonwealth, so mighty Australia can't beat them at it yet.

Also you do not have to enjoy basketball to know Dennis Rodman, his personality and off court antics are much more exciting than the games ever were.

Rounders is basically the British version of baseball, but with a small bat and ball. In school P.E it is mainly the girls who play it, but it doesn't really matter.

Wasn't that Snoop Dogg? But we do see his head in a jar in the pilot, when Fry and Bender Hide in the head museum, only for a second though.

Actually, Professie, I think you're right. Now that I see it again, it is Snoop Dogg. My mistake.

I could have sworn we'd seen Rodman's head somewhere else, though...

Probably in the head museum. I think they have a sports section in one of the episodes.

Edit: according to the CGEF episode capsules Rodman was in SP3K. Okay, gotta see that one soon.

Yep, in SP3K, when Bender and Fry are running from Leela, and hide in the head museum, and the camera rolls over the shelves, and we see Bender and Fry's faces among the heads... A couple of shelves lower is DENNIS RODMAN, if I'm not mistaken. I am saying this by memory, so there is a slim chance I'm wrong.

I can't believe there are people in the U.S. that don't know who Dennis Rodman is, or at least heard of him.  He's in the news all the time!  Not to mention all the references from movies and tv shows (mostly on FOX).

And I don't believe they were American either...and even then some people just don't care about sports, especially those like the NBA which, IMHO, suck.

I think most norwegians have heard of him.
Wasn't there a joke about him being from an alien planet on Men In Black?
