    Awesome :)

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ba...hes-rogue-bat-during-Halloween?urn=nba,199399

    Tonight's Halloween game between the Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs was delayed when a bat began flying around the court — that is, until Spurs guard Manu Ginobili(notes) whacked the bat out of midair with his hand like a freakin' cat! ("Manu who catch bat with hand accomplish anything." — Mr. Miyagi)

    With the bat dazed and confused, Manu calmly picked up the flying mammal, walked it over to an usher and delivered his kill. After a quick squirt of hand sanitizer the game was back on. No bat, no problem.

    If it's not one thing, it's another, you know?

    And oh, just in case PETA is reading, my sources tell me the bat was released outside the arena.

    UPDATE: It's dead.

    One more reason for me to hate the Spurs. Killing that poor animal was completely unnecessary.

    oh. my. god.

    This must be the funniest sequence on the basketball court I have ever seen. I was like WTF the whole time and I couldn't stop laughing. Dude uses his cat-like reflexes to swat the thing to the floor then casually pick it up and give it to someone omg

    The bat was flopping to mock Manu.
