Talking Me Shooting a 3 pointer to win a car @ the ACC

Hey all, i finnaly got around to putting this up...

It was back from 2003 when i was only 20. I was selected at random to attempt a 3 point shot to win a Ford Focus.

The rules were

a) 3 shot attempts from the free shrow line for a pize per shot
b) if i make atleast 1 of the 3 free throws i get to shoot for the car

Anyway i can say im 2/3 shooting free throws and 1/1 on a NBA Court in 3 pointers

Made my day.

Way to come through, few of us could say we could do the same.

I know I couldn't!!

Great shot!

Hate Ford (a couple bad experiences) but a free car for 2yrs is a sweet deal.

That's great, I'd love to have the opportunity to shoot for something, hopefully not a focus though. I find it somewhat sleazy that Herbie just throws in the two year lease thing at the end, after he already built up the excitement on the premise winning a car. What really brings back memories is the Bell Vista phone which used to be such a hot item, I guess the '10 equivalent of that is the PVR.

Even the one miss looked like it wanted to go in. Too bad you couldn't trade the focus in for the Raptor mascot's car - that would rock.

They would never do that. It's a better car and probably more expensive.

Well done sir. I want to get a shot at the million dollars from halfcourt. I'd hit the 3 or halfcourt in my sleep.

Great job, dude! You've got ice water in your veins. Nobody will be saying "pics or it didn't happen." You gotta love youtube!
