Lighter side: Taking shots from long range

The neighbors drove up Wednesday to discover me walking out of their yard, football in hand.

I'd been throwing 35-yard lobs at the basketball hoop they recently installed at the end of our street. A couple came close, but area shrubbery was at greater risk than the net.

It could be worse. A certain ESPN analyst and former Seattle Seahawks quarterback could be firing footballs through mug shots out front.

Check it out.

My favorite: The pass over the skywalk into a garbage can.
