    Hoopfest squads call themselves the darndest things
      We’ve gone through the more than 7,000 teams entered in this year’s tournament and handpicked a few of the more amusing titles and handed out some not-soofficial awards to those who went the extra mile. If your squad is not on the list, we’re sorry. You’ll have to turn your attention to the actual basketball.

    What meth would sound like it if it was at all productive.
      If meth heads weren’t so busy selling their stuff, they might have beat Owen Hart to making music like this: jacked-up, cranked-out, over-thetop metal with a perma-boner. Save for their drummer, who is no Dave Lombardo (yet), they make Slayer look like a bunch of old guys.

    Spokane has a professional basketball team? Sort of. It kind of depends how you define "basketball."
      game is nothing without rules. That may sound contradictory, at first. (Games are about play and fun, not bureaucracy.) But the game of tag, without the requirement that players touch each other, would just be a lot of pointless running around.

    They're watching every second of every game, but they don't really care who wins. They're the court monitors.
      Those guys who stand out in the sun for 12 hours on Saturday and then come back and do it all over again on Sunday? They’re not getting paid. Oh, sure, they get some swag — shoes, a hat, a pair of shorts. (And a T-shirt that says “Court Monitor.

      It didn’t happen automatically. In fact, it was a lengthy step-by-step process. Back in early 2009, Hoopfest’s marketing manager, Kirstin Davis, submitted a request for Guinness headquarters in Britain to judge what Hoopfest already knew — that it was the biggest.
