This is a basketball.
Apparently, it's used in a sport played in college and they have tournaments every spring to determine who is the baddest of them all.
I think it will be the University of Louisville this year.
Really, I don't have a clue about sports. But when I came into the TV room yesterday, babycakes was watching THE GAME and I sat down and ... two fucking hours later I was a basketball fan.
See, Louisville was losing throughout the entire game. But in the last minute they tied the other team and the game went into overtime. And then they won.
