Basketball Goal Renewed
Play this for maximum story impact:
DRIVEWAY – This week, Scooter invested in a new net for the Blue House basketball goal, and it initiated a large-scale renovation. The driveway has now transformed into one of the premier basketball venues in the country.
Before the renewal, the court was simply a driveway, an old store-bought goal, and a decaying hoop and net. Now, it is vamped-up to challenge modern NBA arenas. While it may be doubtful to some that the Blue House will ever get its own NBA franchise, the goal’s renovation is stylish as well as ambitious.
Once Scooter installed the new and unveiled the new basketball he acquired on sale at Wal-Mart, the court drastically improved. The House installed small bleachers so a handful of lucky people could witness intense matches of 21 and HORSE. Demand, however, soon forced supply, and the House upped the bleachers to arena-style seating which can hold upwards of twenty thousand people.
“The level of play combined with entertainment-value required an expansion,” Scooter said.
Some residents, however, had their doubts.
“Using it for basketball is dumb,” Man-Man said. “More people would watch if I just parked the SVX in the middle of the court.”
Scooter, of course, disagreed, believing that the court should be used for roundball only.
“They’re both stupid,” Nickle said. “You want to fill up the arena? Take out the basketball court and just show Jurassic Park.”
The venue has yet to host anything yet except for Scooter’s highly publicized shoot-arounds in the afternoon. Those practices have drawn an average of only fourteen thousand people. In the meantime, Scooter is trying to get Marv Albert to commentate a game of HORSE between House residents and guests.
If it happens, the road to a professional team may be short indeed
Here is the evolution of the court:
