Anything you can do, I can do better. Trick basketball shot videos have officially been kicked up a notch.
Oh sure, the Goodyear Blimp is a staple of major American sporting events, but this is believed to be the first time it has played a leading role. Goodyear first started flying blimps for advertising purposes in 1925, and they currently operate three airships around the United States in California, Ohio and Florida. And while they often hover over basketball arenas, the hoop is rarely in play.
This is the world's first Goodyear Blimp basketball shot. The crazy basket reached the web on Thursday afternoon and by Thursday night had earned the No. 2 spot on ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 plays.
Some of the more well-known events the Blimp has flown over include The World Cup, The Olympics, auto racing, soccer, golf, American football and baseball, and horseracing, according to Goodyearblimp.com. The Indianapolis 500, the Kentucky Derby, the Super Bowl and World Series games, the Rose Bowl and parade, the America's Cup yacht races; the U.S. Open and PGA for Golf have also been blessed by the blimp in the sky.
