Afghan Basketball Fail
It's unfortunate that Afghanistan is best known in the West as a hive of terrorism and heroin. It's actually a fascinating country that has over 4,000 years of history, catchy pop tunes, attractive women, delicious food and is home to a fairly intense sport called Buzkashi, which is like polo, but played with a goat carcass.
Yes, the Afghan people have a lot of things to be proud of. Unfortunately, their prowess on the basketball court is not one of them. This footage was shot during a recent game at Kandahar University. Watch as the big man in the neon jersey not only misses a breakaway dunk, which happens everywhere, but damn near kills himself in the process.
