Top 10 Reasons I LOVE Basketball  
10)  Basketball is Fun
9) Basketball Provides Both A Physical and a Mental Workout That Keeps Your Mind Engaged and Body Strong and Agile
8) A Basketball Will Never Judge You, No Matter How Much It Might Resent You for Dribbling It So Hard or Keeping it Under a Pile of Dirty Clothes, or sleeping with it's sister
7) Basketballs Make You Laugh
6) Basketballs Make You Cry (In a Good Way) (unless it bounces up in your face and all the kids that hangout at the basketball court laugh at you and your apparently "white ass")
5) A Basketball Would Never Ask to Borrow $1000 to Clear A Gambling Debt and then Fall off the Face of the Earth for Six-Months and Then You Happen to Run Into It On the Metro On Your Way Home From Work and It Acts All Awkward And Distant and At First Pretends It Doesn't see you and then after you talk briefly it Gets off at a stop you know isn't really the stop it was going to get off at before you happened to bump into him
4) Basketball is the only sport that Is Named After Lina Basquette, the 1930s Film Star
3) Trivia: Did you Know that Lina Basquette had 9 Marriages, including one to Actor/Child Murderer Sam Warner?
2) Lina Basquette, such a pretty name
1) Lina Basquette's grandson, Roger Basquette works in cinema and has been credited on such films as "Spy Kids", "Friday Night Lights", and the recent Cohen Brother's action-packed suspense thriller "No Country for Old Men," for which he was the digital video assist operator.  When asked what inspires him most about working in film, he responded, "Why are you standing so close to me" and "Have we met?"

how did you not put anything down about me beating you at horse or strangers photographing your jump shot or ankle biter neighborhood street children harassing our every move? is it offensive that i actually said street children? i hope so.
