The Ball Girl

[Thanks to Jimmy]

I'm not interested in sports, but you gotta admire ability like this.
And as far as I can figure out, a "ball girl" is not even a player, but just there to pick up stray balls.



Durn it, sadly it was faked for a commercial.


Note: sometimes the wrong video shows in a post. Miserere comments:
I opened the individual post in its own tab and the video came up fine (you're right, that was an amazing catch—Jackie Chan would be proud of her) but it's still a different video in the main blog page. I then Ctrl+refresh and the correct video showed up, so the problem might be Firefox not handling Blogger's idiosyncrasies correctly.

The video I'm getting is "Timbuktu - the first iPad magazine for kids". Am I the only one?

Strange. I get the right one, baseball.

But videos in the wrong posts has been happening occasionally to some people, I guess it's a Blogger bug.
Try another browser, Opera, Safari...

She reminds me of those dudes that climb buildings like it's no big deal. Spider Girl! :-D

It's impressive, maybe, to a non-sports fan.

Yeah, The Monkey King is impressive.

This has been happening frequently as of lately on your blog, but I haven't been interested in watching other videos so it wasn't a problem.

I opened the individual post in its own tab and the video came up fine (you're right, that was an amazing catch—Jackie Chan would be proud of her) but it's still a different video in the main blog page.

My verification word is "untest", which I find unnerving... Is Blogger trying to tell me something???

Nice out take from a Gatorade ad. The comments kinda demonstrate there are a lot of scary people out there.

I totally believe the jump, she jumps from wall to wall, up and up. David Belle would be proud of her, as for the catch at the top of the jump, even if they added a CG ball, it's still a fun thing to see.

Do they have ballboys in baseball, like they do in tennis? I don't remember them having that in Cricket.

I wouldn't call you scary. Really creepy, maybe, but not scary.
