Since this is probably the busiest day I've had in fortnights, I'll just re-post the greatest video ever recorded and run away. I've posted the link before, but I just love it that much. Enjoy.

Without spoiling the clip, keep an eye on the running kid, but I implore you to pay close atttention to the reaction of guy in the back row of the stands right in front of the camera: priceless.

That is in fact, the greatest video of all time.

I'm still amazed it actually happened every time I watch it.

Let me rephrase. It is in fact, *one* of the greatest videos of all time. I should not be so quick to respond because my answer is obviously partial having just witnessed it again.

The situation is similar to the sports polls that pop up after something of note happens in the sports world. Like for example, ESPN will pose a question "Who is the greatest Duke player of all time?" immediately AFTER Redick hits for 40+ points and ten 3's. Obviously people are going to lean towards that fairy instead of any other player in Duke history.

Redick's gaaaay, duuuuude.

I do love the fascination with instant history though...sometimes it's just too damn tough to remember any farther back than a few weeks. It's like the Listerine pocket strips -- we don't even wanna suck any more.

Easy on JJ, even though his name isn't JJ. Lifelong Duke fan here. There's no better shooter in the NCAA, whether open or covered. Yes, the three point line has helped him reach the all-time scoring leader in [insert category here] whereas guys like Dawkins didn't have one. But still, he's shooting 48% from behind the arc. Gotta love a guy who can pull up on a 3 on 1 break and drain a 3, and everyone thinks it's okay.

Nobody puts JJ in a corner. Unless he's coming off of a flex screen.

Wow. That is an unbelievable clip! There's nothing like seeing an innocent kid get smacked around, no?

Someone sent me a clip once of a male dancer rehearsing on a commercial set with two background dancers, and while he's dancing, these kids are running and...well, you can imagine. If only I could send you the clip.

Oh wait...

I've seen a lot of things in my life, but

Thanks for the clip Jason.

My pleasure! Who doesn't like a kid getting kicked in the head? Really?
