It's Friday, just returned from New York. It's the day after my birthday. But the KanJam blog goes on. First off, I hope everyone here listens to and reads Bill Simmons. As I'm writing this I'm listening to his podcast with Neal Brennan, the director of The Goods, which I will be seeing tonight. What's funny is that I sent a text to my friends "Who wants to see the goods tonight?" and afterwards I noticed that could be taken the complete wrong way. Oh well.
Anyways I need help from the readers today. All ten of you. Everyone here has been in this position like 100 times so I'm sure I can get a couple good ideas here. When you need the instant win at the end of the game, what is your strategy for nailing it? I have two instant wins in my career and both of them actually came in the same day. Also both of them were shots that started to the right of the kan and swooped into the top of the kan on the downfall of it's flight. This is a trickier shot because not only do you need to judge the distance and the height, you need to figure out the perfect hook.
I would think it's much easier to slide it into the instant win slot, but I have just never come close to nailing it. What's the secret?
Getting back to the original paragraph, if I can laugh at the Goods half as much as I did while watching Ferris Bueller for the hundredth time, I'd be a happy camper. Also if it was like an hour shorter than Funny People, that would be nice as well.
Anyways, I'm anxiously awaiting the tips. I could use them.
Until next time,
