Follow the Bouncing Ball


So the rumors just get stranger and stranger. Seems the latest fad in hand-to-eye coordination drills has come to Stair Ball...which is exactly what you would guess: kicking or throwing a lightweight, air-filled ball up a flight of stairs. What will the gods of sports development come up with next...chair-staring? I can see how that would improve concentration and focus. Call me a skeptic, but I have yet to hear a solid case defending the employment of Stair Ball. Maybe some of you could oblige?
More after the jump...

So a ten-year-old is struggling a bit, but four-star prep football stars should dominate, right? Think again. The stud athletes are just as unskilled as our friendly, young YouTube Stair Ball enthusiast.

Evidently the game is some absurd offspring of stoop ball (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoop_ball) and bowling. Just...stop it. I mean, really. Hopping back and forth over a jump rope is one thing, but throwing a ball at stairs? Shoot, maybe I should change my opinion. Maybe...if I do really well at Stair Ball...I could get a job as an Assistant to the Assistant Athletic Director for Strength and Conditioning.

Anyway...please, gents and ladies...your thoughts on Stair Ball...
