Hoosiers are very proud of the fact that they can play basketball, very well. Two things you are supposed to love if you are born and raised in Indiana are basketball and Indy car racing. Guess what? I hate them both. My entire life, I have known that James Naismith invented basketball in 1891. It may or may not have been on the test to be able to graduate from high school. While trying to check my email earlier, I came across a phenomenal video of a high school junior varsity player (who was probably promoted to the varsity team after this shot!) A-freakin'-mazing! But really? Can't my home state figure out that hockey is much more interesting?
