Amazing, and so was the Elorrio play Posted on October 11, 2018 at 05:46:23 PM by Craig G
At first I thought you were wrong about 'risking his balls', because if anything it was his ankle at greatest risk. But thinking it over, the reason he was even in that predicament in the first place is that up there at the 9-line, with a hard throw, the pelota is moving so fast, and spinning, that you don't have time to reposition yourself at all.
And if the pelota is coming right at you, so as to bounce just in front and between your legs, it is ONLY in 20-20 hindsight - and probably repeated slo-mo replay - that we see that it wasn't going to bounce straight up. Anybody here willing to take that chance?
And also to Big Dave, for not saying, "Now, that's real jai-alai!"
Because it was actually UNREAL jai-alai. Amazing. Replies:
