Football goal and basketball shot at the same time

Filed under: Sports,Weird by Orangemaster @ 5:11 pm


The film of a penalty kick at football club DOVO in Veenendaal, Utrecht during a indoor football tournament is going viral. Not only did Rafael Mamba score a goal, but one of his shoes landed right into the basketball hoop on the wall at the same time.

That’s two goals at once and it will make your day if you watch it. Keep your eyes on the shoe first and then watch it again to make sure the ball goes into the goal.

Timelapse video of basketball hall morphing into concert venue, and back again

This is a lovely time-lapse video by videographer Pepijn Koning of the MartiniPlaza venue in Groningen, of which the centre hall seats 4,500.

Earlier this month the Dutch Basketball League play-offs were held here, but in the middle of the play-offs the basketball hall had to make room for a dance hall in which a paint party was to be held (folks dancing while squirting each other with paint).

The video shows how the hall transforms from one type of venue into the other and back again.
