Today’s Top 5

Agility Drills

Good coaches always mix the speed & agility drills: box, ladder, cone, Charleston, shuttle. I suppose the foxtrot might improve vertical jumps, too.

Ukneeda Basket?

What's with the guys all wearing kneepads? It looks like it would be difficult to run with those things on.

Musically Inclined

That piano stool seems to have suffered an overload. Does it include a wayward snake?

Flapper heaven

The guy on the left looks like Arthur Godfrey. The piano player has a different slant on life.

The Piano Player

Maybe Kennedy or Kearns can teach her how to go to her right.

DWTS 1.0

Is this the beginning of "Dancing With the Stars"?
