I just don't like basketball. My sons play so I go to there games, but I'd be lying to say I have grown to appreciate the game. It's pretty clear only tall people can advance very far up the basketball ranks. Spud Webb...yeah, yeah. A sport where a person who is 6'7 is considered a "small forward" just isn't for short, squatty, Sicilians.
Nevertheless, while at lunch today I saw the following clip on a flat screen. Pretty cool.
I told my sons I would give them $100 if they could ever dunk a basketball. Truth be told, I used to be able to "get rim" when I was a senior in high school, I just couldn't get my wrist over the rim to throw the ball down- plus I could barely palm a basketball. I fully anticipate at least one of my sons will be able to dunk some day, so I'll set a couple hundred aside.
