My hot date with a slam-dunk!

September 15, 2009

Blog Guy, I know you follow international sports, and I have a question. Somebody told me women’s basketball is played very differently in Europe. Do they use a different sort of basketball?

No, they don’t use one at all. Instead, the women stuff each other through the hoops.

Really? Then how does the game end?

Well, when both baskets have players totally stuck in them, the rest of the teams go off and get drunk together.

That’s quite interesting. But if they use a person instead of a ball in basketball, then how do they play BASEBALL over there?

Trust me, you don’t want to know. It isn’t pretty.
