    You almost got me with the flopping coach. Believed it all until the coach bio – NO ONE WORE HEADBANDS IN 1962!! Busted … but nice try.

    “A” for effort & idea, but not really funny

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    I almost expected to see Varejao!

  • Ben Frambaugh

    So, an “A” for effort.
    But “effort” has two “Fs” ;)

  • MrCleaveland

    They tell you it’s a put-on right off the tip when they say the guy’s 71.

    I played a lot of rec league hoopage, and I never saw a rec league guy flop. We had way too much pride and/or dignity for that.

    Plus you might break a hip! ;-)

  • Matt underwood

    It was early in the morning… God I’m an idiot

  • Ben Frambaugh

    Sorry, that’s the joke I use with my kids when they try something (especially that they shouldn’t be trying) and then fail at it. (Sort of like trying to be funny.)
    This “A” for Effort but Effort has “two Fs” thing applies to me all the time. ;)
