Guest Chris Bosh
Whether you're into basketball or not, it's hard not to like Chris Bosh.  Along with being an NBA superstar, Chris is a genuinely nice guy, and he's got a great sense of humour.  But we'll get to that...

First, the basketball. Chris was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 2003 NBA Draft.  As a rookie, he played in the shadow of Vince Carter.  But when Vince was traded, Chris became the franchise.  He's been an all-star four times, led the Raps to a division title and won gold with Team USA at the Beijing Olympics. So, that's the "on court" stuff.

Off the court, Chris has set up his own foundation to help kids reach their educational and athletic goals - and when he signed a new deal a few years ago, he donated a million dollars to a Toronto charity.  He also became the first athlete in the world to launch his own iPhone application.  And he's become quite the performer - doing comedy skits on YouTube that have had millions of hits.

Now, he's got a short film about his off-season, plus five new comedy sketches.  It's all on his new DVD: 'Chris Bosh Presents: First Ink.'
