 The video shows six students at Texas A&M University in
 America who have come together to form a group called
 'Dude Perfect' - quickly becoming yet another internet
 legend.  Their latest videos, posted on YouTube on
 September 17, shows one of the 'Dudes' making a jaw-
 dropping shot from the third deck of the Texas A&M
 football stadium.  The two videos - one taken from the
 third deck, one taken from down by the net - both show
 the ball clearly arcing through the air before smoothly
 scoring.

 Computer experts called in to examine previous videos
 have told American media that they cannot see where any

Subj:     Father Sues High School Basketball Coach (S254b)
          From: agrief on 12/12/2001
 Source: (Removed from espn.go.com/highschool)

 UNION CITY, Calif. -- The father of a high school sophomore
 is seeking $1.5 million in damages and the dismissal of the
 school's basketball coach after his son did not get a spot
 on the varsity team.

 Lynn Rubin sued the New Haven Unified School District on Nov.
 27 because his son, Jawaan Rubin, was told to return to the
 junior varsity team after being asked to try out for varsity.

 The family already had rearranged its schedules to accommodate
 the varsity team's practice times, the suit said.

 Coach Blake Chong, who cited a policy limiting sophomores to
 junior varsity when he cut Jawaan Rubin, did not consult with
 the parents before cutting the boy, according to the suit.

 Chong refused to comment Monday.

 After the player confronted the coach about the decision, he
 was dropped from the junior varsity team, the suit said.

 Rubin, whose older son, Janou, starred under Chong at Logan
 High School and is a sophomore guard at UCLA, said he
 calculated the damages based on potential wages lost from
 his son's possible professional basketball career.

Subj:     NBA Players Need Your Support!
          From: JOELFALLON on 98-11-22

 With an NBA player's strike against the team owners, now is
 the time for us to show the world just how much we care.  It
 is just not right.  Hundreds of basketball players in our
 very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure
 salary line.  And as if that weren't bad enough, they will
 be deprived of pay for several weeks-possibly a whole year!

 Now you can help!  For about two thousand dollars a day -
 that's less than the cost of a large screen projection TV -
 you can help keep a basketball player economically viable
 during his time of need.  Two thousand dollars a day may not
 seem like a lot of money to you, but to a basketball player
 it could mean the difference between a vacation spent golfing
 in Florida or a Mediterranean cruise.  For you, two thousand
 dollars is nothing more than two or three months rent or
 mortgage payments.  But to a basketball player, two thousand
 dollars a day will almost replace his salary.

 Your commitment of two thousand dollars a day will enable a
 player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the
 year old Lexus for a new Ferrari, enjoy a weekend in Rio,
 and pay his lawyer fees to fight child support payments.

 "HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING?"

 Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on
 the player you sponsor.  Detailed information about his
 stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate and other investment
 holdings will be mailed to your home.  You'll also get
 information on how he plans to invest the $5 million lump
 sum he will receive upon retirement.

 "HOW WILL HE KNOW I'M HELPING"

 Your basketball player will be told that he has a SPECIAL
 FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need.  Although
 the player won't know your name, he will be able to make
 collect calls to your home via a special operator just in
 case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.

 Simply fill out the form below.

 YES, I want to help!  I would like to sponsor a striking
 NBA basketball player.

 My preference is checked below:

 [ ] Starter
 [ ] Reserve
 [ ] Star*
 [ ] Superstar**
 [ ] Entire team***
 [ ] I'll sponsor a player most in need.
 [ ] Please select one for me.

   *  Higher cost
  **  Much higher cost
 ***  Please call our 900 number to ask for the cost of a
      specific team.  (Does not include cheerleaders)

 Please charge the account listed below $2,054.79 per day
 for reserve or starter for the duration of the strike.
 Please send me a picture of the player I have sponsored,
 along with a team logo and my very own NBA Players
 Association badge to wear proudly on my lapel.

 [ ] MasterCard [ ] Visa [ ] American Express
 [ ] Discover Card [ ] Diner's Club

 Your Name: __________________________
 Telephone Number: _____________________
 Account Number: _______________________ Exp. Date:______
 Signature:  __________________________

 Mail completed form to NBA Players Association or call
 1-888-TOOMUCH now to enroll by phone (Children under 18
 must have parent's approval)

 Note: Sponsors are not permitted to contact the player
 they have sponsored, either in person or by other means
 including, but not limited to, telephone calls, letters,
 e-mail, or third parties.  Keep in mind that the basketball
 player you have sponsored will be much to busy making shoe
 commercials and enjoying his free time thanks to your
 generous donations.  Oh yes, contributions are not tax
 deductable.

Subj:     Computer Experience Not Required (S241)
          From: bonehead on 9/9/2001
 Writer Jack McCallum of Sports Illustrated told CNN about
 a time, back in 1988, when he walked into his Los Angeles
 hotel room and found Boston Celtic's Carren Daye trying to
 insert his bare foot into his computer.

 Turns out Daye was in the wrong room, expecting instead to
 be in a teammate's room, who had told him to come up and
 try out his ''foot sensory machine.''

 Adopted from the Steve Harvey column in the Los Angeles Times.

Subj:     Too Big Of A House Test (S293b)
          From: jerry on 9/11/2002
 How can you tell that you went overboard and made your
 house too big?  When you need a search party to find
 your 4-year-old daughter who is somewhere in the house.

 Atlanta Hawk's player, Theo Ratliff [The Atlanta Hawks
 are a basketball team], after being unable to locate his
 4-year-old daughter for over an hour within his new
 15,000 square-foot home, had to form a search party to
 go through the house to find her.  She was eventually
 found napping in a guestroom.

 He was warned in advance.  One of his friends says, "I
 told him he was going to lose babies in a house that big."
