7/1: Short people's basketball
I'm here to document a trend... a trend that we can only encourage. Short people's basketball.
I was relatively short when I was a kid. This meant that I could not play basketball.
Not really. But I love seeing these pictures of exhibition short people's teams. There's just something appealing about it. I'm guessing they're worth the download time.
Yeah, it's comical because they're tiny, but they also seem to be really into it, and it's charity money, it's all good.
Hey, it's important to document trends like these. I do wish there were some better images, but these are the best four from the sites I found. Anyway, my main complaint about the sport of basketball is that, in order to play at the pro level, you pretty much have to be a mutant. Compare the pros to "regular" people, and except for Iverson and Spud Webb and a small handful of really awesome shorter guys, they all look like mutants. Mutants of height. So to go the other way with it - to go short with it - is some kind of justice.

It's all nice and cute now, but I wonder how long it will be before "The Man Show" gets ahold of this knowledge. Anyone who watches knows what I mean.

Question - Do they lower the basket??
Or do the short folk have to try harder?
