Area Dressage Horse Doesn't Understand Basketball

Last night Single Entendre, a 9 year old Hanoverian gelding, watched his first basketball game, a match between the Miama Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder. About five minutes into the game Single Entendre declared, “I just don't get it. These really tall guys run up and down a polished wood floor, bouncing a ball and throwing it around.  What's the point?” Single Entendre, an accomplished third level dressage horse, generally has a great appreciation for athletic feats, but the sport of basketball left him confused. “Every once in a while one of the tall guys would twirl through the air and then hang onto the hoop and the crowd would go absolutely nuts. And these guys get paid millions of dollars to do this?  I just don't get it.”
