Say what you will about velcro, it gets the job done.
This poor basketball player had a rough day. After losing her shoe during a game, she just couldn’t get the traction needed to stand up straight and play the game. Slipping and sliding all over the court, she was probably thinking, “Why didn’t I tie my shoe better? Next time, I’ll use velcro, the thinking person’s lace.”
As Alanis Morrissette once sang, possibly in reference to switching over to velcro shoes, “You live, you learn.”
Sometimes life just up and drills you with an entirely unplanned curveball of a shitty situation. This is one of those times. Keep your eyes peeled for the later half of the movie, and brace yourself as you witness what's easily already the most cringeworthy kiss cam performance of 2017.
Now if only we can get a clip of his Air-ness Michael Jordan screaming “I’m king of the world!”
@TitanicHoops is an ingenious twitter account that shows basketball highlights while playing the music from Titanic. It’s as simple of that.
However, one of the surprising things about it is that it makes basketball even better, if not more emotionally powerful. I mean, I once thought there’s nothing more emotional than a serious dunk, but then I watched it with “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion playing. I’m shook. I'm changed. I'm the king of the world.
When ESPN cut back from commercial during a college football game last night, they caught broadcaster and former player Bill Walton going on about marijuana legalization, with others in the room cheering him on, saying “get ‘em, Bill.” As if to make this clip even better, he’s also dressed in a full Uncle Sam garb, asking Obama to free anyone who was arrested for marijuana-related crimes.
It’s pretty awesome. Though, this isn’t the first time Bill Walton has let his pot politics known. He’s criticized marijuana laws on ESPN2 before, as well.
But I’ll tell you one guy who didn’t find it awesome or “cool.” This guy:
Shattering the backboard, is there a greater display of dominance? It sends the message that not only am I slam-dunking this shit, no one else is going to be playing until we clean this up and get a new hoop.
That’s how Isaiah Banks of Heritage High School student became the coolest kid in school.
