Playing close to the Thunder

On the way to the game, I saw these kids playing basketball close to the Thunder.

Trenton Thunder, that is. They live across the street from Mercer County Waterfront Park where the Trenton Thunder were hosting the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

The weirdest thing was while I was photographing the action, one of the young man's shots did that thing where the ball gets lodged between the rim and backboard. He scurried up the pole as fast as a squirrel and used his body weight to tip the backboard over and he rode it down to ground level where he pushed the ball free and then let the backboard spring back up into position!

Let the games continue!
