In one of Ball Don't Lie's last Barack Obama-basketball posts, we promised to find and share a clip of John McCain dunking from the free-throw line in the name of "leveling the political playing field." Unfortunately, such a video doesn't exist ... yet. So let's run this instead.
Via Deadspin's front porch, we have some hair-raising footage of McCain's new running mate, Governor Sarah Palin — then Sarah Heath — covering basketball, hockey, Tommy Lasorda and "lots of dogs" in 1988 for KTUU-TV in Anchorage, Alaska.
Boom goes the Iditarod!
Hey, look: Knicks lose! Some things never change!
