A Sound of Thunder

Much like the last video of a dunk that I intended to post but then forgot, I meant to post this about a week ago, when it actually happened. I kind of posted it mentally in my brain but then didn't actually do the real-life electronic posting. Nevertheless, it was quite enjoyable to watch.

I once did a dunk like that on a Nerf hoop.

I meant to post this clip shortly after it happened, but I went into a week-long coma after instinctively diving headlong out of my chair and striking my dome on the corner of the coffee table the moment I saw this dunk.

On the Subject of Large Balls

We had a ball kind of like this in gym class back when I was in elementary school.
The only difference was that our ball was not quite planet-sized. It was called the "cage ball," and the sport that we played using it as a prop was called... drum roll please... "cage ball." The point of the game was to keep the ball afloat and not let it hit the ground, or something to that effect. Eventually it was deemed dangerous after a couple of weaker kids got injured when they were unable to support its massive weight. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that their heads were squashed. That cage ball was heavy.

Please Be Seated

I don't take very much pleasure in watching Andre Miller play basketball.
Though I respect the fact that he's effective despite being ground-bound, there's just nothing aesthetically pleasing about his game.

There is, however, something aesthetically pleasing about watching Derrick Rose cross Miller over so severely that the aged Sixers point guard ends up seated on his buttocks. Very nice.
