If it's Saturday, this must be silly

I suppose one could make the argument that many of my posts are silly, Saturday or otherwise, but I do strive for a certain regularity when it comes to silly videos.

Anyway, who says you can't teach an old gym rat new tricks?

This video kind of sums up my view of real basketball. As I've admitted before, I'm not much of a fan, but when I do manage to catch part of a game, particularly the end, I'm always reminded of that old joke about how all they really need to play are the last 30 seconds.

What do you suppose the rat was thinking on that last shot, when he or she drove to the basket, then hesitated, perched atop the rim: I'm full? This is stupid? Why are all these kids looking at me?

Or maybe the rat was simply trash-chattering his or her opponent, who clearly had forsaken Big D in favor of chow.

In any case, I hope your weekend is filled with rewards as well.


  1. This could be why I've never excelled at many sports, but I think getting a treat after scoring a goal is a great thing.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  2. Have you tried bowling, Badass? That's about the only sport I can think of where you can reward your efforts, mid-game, with beers and hot dogs.

  3. I think I'd rather watch rats than people play basketball. Watching other people play sports....I just never got that.

  4. I know what you mean, Sandy. I've always been far more of a participant than a spectator, though I will confess to being a Patriots fan. At least the football season is nice and short!
