The Legend of Swee’ Pea

Support this documentary about the quixotic life of NYC playground legend and basketball savant Lloyd “Swee’ Pea” Daniels.

“Lloyd Daniels’s unlikely rise to the NBA is the stuff that myths are made of: the most sought-after college basketball recruit of his generation, he got busted buying cocaine in a police sting operation. Two years later was almost killed after getting shot three times in the chest while negotiating an $8 crack deal. Yet somehow managed to make it to the NBA without having played a single college game, with remnants of bullets still in his body, and with years of crack addiction behind him.”

The Lure of Two-Button Baseball

rbi-baseball-comparison

Old folks who stopped playing video games once the toggles became necessary can now rejoice, a revamped, yet distinctly familiar R.B.I. Baseball returns to video game consoles April 10th.

Oh man, this might be the best sport invented in the 21st century. An obvious combination of golf and soccer, FootGolf is a game for those who want to be free from the self-discipline in golf and the running in soccer.
