If you thought Deion Sanders' induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last Saturday was nuts, just wait until Dennis Rodman gets his chance to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday. Rodman, who will arrive at the ceremony in Springfield, Mass. via helicopter, originally wanted to enter the Hall of Fame on a colorful float. "But they wouldn't let me block off the street," he said.

So instead, Rodman's spending $60,000 to fly friends like actress Penny Marshall and Howard Stern to the event, which will apparently include acrobats (WTF?) and a few of Rodman's over-the-top outfits. Sounds like we already know what the sports blogs will be talking about on Saturday, eh? [via Miami Herald]
