This is the video for “Hit Em High” from the Space Jam soundtrack. I think it’s appropriate to post here for a couple reasons. First of all, it is a rap song about basketball, and this is a huge basketball weekend. I’ve had the NCAA Tournament on pretty much non-stop over the past two days, and this trend is showing no signs of letting up. This could be problematic in relation to my regular gig as a TV blogger, but this is one weekend where everything else in the world can go straight to hell. Daddy’s watching basketball.
The other reason I’m posting it is because this is my last day filling in here while Brandon is up to his eyeballs in South by Southwest bric-a-brac, and I like Space Jam. It is easily my favorite movie about evil cartoon aliens stealing the basketball skills from NBA players (including Muggsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley), and then using these skills to try to defeat Michael Jordan and a team of Looney Tunes in a winner-take-all game that takes place in the cosmos. Also, it features Lola Bunny, and Lola Bunny is a total babe.
Anyway, that’s my time. Enjoy the tournament.
