Drills: Hand-eye coordination
If you're jonesing for some buckets but you're stuck at work you're in luck--Slime Dunk Basketball.
This is your chance to settle the score between Argentina and Belgium (Manu Ginobili vs. Tony Parker).
The game is a little confusing. You lose a point every time that you get "pinged for goal tending"--but this actually appears to be something like a three-second violation. You can't be in the marked area under the basket for more than the allowed time.
I don't think I'm coordinated enough or patient enough to play it, but I think I would be willing to learn if Jeff challenged me. Maybe I'd have a chance in Slimeland--though I doubt it. Or maybe my wife will play me. It will give her a break from kicking my ass in foosball.
