More good stories:
– A high school Jewish basketball team in Texas is forfeiting a trip to the state semifinals because their game falls on Friday night at 9 — just after the beginning of their Sabbath, which lasts from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. Gotta admire their courage to stick to their convictions.
– Wanna watch a bridge explode? Here you go. Pretty cool — it’s the Fort Steuben bridge over the Ohio River between Ohio and West Virginia. The slo-mo replay is even better.
– Great NYT story on the life of players trying to catch on in the NBA with 10-day contracts. They’ve got a really short window to impress. Story follows one such player named Andre Emmett and his 10-day contract with the New Jersey Nets.
