With the lockout continuing, NBA players have been forced to look elsewhere to fulfill their basketball jones. In the case of Dwight Howard, this journey took him to Japan, where the Orlando Magic center recently dunked on an 11-foot hoop which had been attached to the neck of a 12-foot stuffed giraffe, during an exhibition at a Tokyo mall.
Yes, it all sounds a bit strange, but the crowd gets really into it.
During the fourth inning of the Arizona Diamondbacks/New York Mets game on Sunday, Arizona pitcher Jason Marquis struck Mets catcher Josh Thole with a pitch. Upon impact, both players fell down into respective heaps.
Why? It turns out that in the prior inning, Marquis’ leg had been hit by a ball off the bat of Mets centerfielder Angel Pagan. The force broke the fibula bone in the pitcher’s leg, but he decided to keep playing. What balls!
Labor issues could very well wipe out the 2011-2012 NBA season, but a fledgling basketball league appears prepared to pick up the slack if Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki and company aren’t allowed to hit the hardwood.
University of South Florida football player Danous Estenor sprung right into action when he saw that tow truck driver Pedro Arzola had become trapped underthe Cadillac Seville he had been trying to load onto his truck.
Two men and Arzola’s hysterically screaming wife hadn’t been able to move the 3,500 pound car at all. But the six-foot-three-inch, 295-pound offensive lineman, who was on his way to get a bite to eat, took a crack at lifting it all by himself.
