Jordan Snipes: Athlete or Alien?

I don't have enough time tonight to do any serious blogging (heck, I don't even have time to watch the State of the Union Address), but I had to share this one with everybody. On Monday night, Guilford College (NC) basketball player and former high-school quarterback Jordan Snipes got the ball in overtime. The other team, Randolph-Macon, had taken a one-point lead off a foul shot by Adam Krovic. With 0.6 seconds left in the game, Krovic muffed the second foul shot, which went into the hands of Snipes. In the ultimate desperation play, Snipes throws the ball the entire 87-foot length of the court...and sinks it.

The link above has video of this absolutely insane shot; if you're on dial-up, I recommend viewing the game film at the end of the page, as it's only 28 seconds long. For broadband users, check out the additional footage of Snipes repeating his feat on live TV. (CNN needs to get a clue; they're only allowing subscribers to their own program or Real One's to view their copy.) You have to see this.
