LOL @ that ref. I know it's juco, but what the hell was he even thinking?
"Sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose, you really win, and sometimes when you win or lose, you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose. Winning or losing is all one organic mechanism, from which one extracts what one needs."
I know the guy who got dunked on. Ironic but he never takes charges in games. He was roasted hard on facebook (not going to give out his name). I felt sorry for him, who would of guessed the guy would try to dunk from just inside the free throw line?
Wow! Think somehow the Yahoo story is connected to the thread here. Weird, never expected that when I posted here. Some of the stuff in the story is wrong, not sure where all that came from. Too tired, just got in from out of town. Really cool though. Thanks guys!
In the story, my name is wrong, lol. It should be Lum Newburn IV. He said Jacksonville won the game in OT, but they didn't. Tyler won the game. This dunk happened in regulation and was called a charge, so the points were not counted and Skinner was given a foul. So, that was 2 points (possibly 3 with an and 1) Jacksonville didn't get and also the foul on Skinner. The game ended regulation tied at 80. If everything else was equal, Jacksonville would have won by 2 (or 3 points with a made and 1 free throw shot.) Another Jacksonville player fouled out shortly before OT and then about 30 seconds into OT Skinner fouled out.. Jacksonville lost by two (89-91) in OT. So with the call the other way, things could have been a lot different in regulation or OT. Who Knows? Butterfly effect.. Seems like ref calls make the difference in the games a lot in our conference.
So if Kelly Dwyer reads this, he might want to update the story.
I got some more really nice dunks on video at our last game. Maybe not quite up to #1 on Soortscenter I guess, but not bad. Two of them by Daniel Skinner again. He just has a really nasty way of putting them down that makes them fun to see.
It was at the homecoming game of Jacksonville College against Blinn College. Unfortunately they lost at the buzzer after a great comeback. The ref counted the basket by Blinn good, but my video seems to show that it was still in his hand with the buzzer light on. What do you think?
Ball was off of his fingertips when the light came on.
Very close though. Such a tough way to lose a game.
