Men are a weird type of people. We can all be sitting around in tight quarters and find it hilarious when somebody emits gas that could probably kill a small child. We look at our lawns as a badge of honor and the guy with the half dead front lawn is the degenerate of the neighborhood. Men can get into a complete screaming match with their best friend, even beat the crap out of each other, but usually hug it out in the end. All of these things are just a snapshot of what makes men weird but the common blood all men share are sports. We will wear the same outfit if our team gets on a winning streak and actually think we are somehow helping them. We will join a men’s softball league and because it is the A-Division, actually think of themselves as athletes. We all know that basketball is able to separate the suburban out of shape old man from the actual gifted athletes but what if there was a game that could help bridge that gap? A sport that could lower the vertical of those playing, limit the amount of physical effort needed to play, but still be a ton of fun? The answer is pool basketball gentlemen and it allows you to dunk like Shaq and block like Wilt Chamberlain even if you smoke a pack a day.
We love the “sport” of pool basketball because it typically becomes physical with hard fouls and crawling on backs encouraged. That is why we decided to feature the Lifetime Pool Basketball System. The goal stands at 44 inches and is portable to a degree that you can set it up anywhere around a pool (still has a weigh down system to limit goal pull downs). It can go as low as 4 1/2 feet tall upwards to 7 feet tall. We recommend the shorter as it allows for severe goal tending, blocks, and some pretty violent dunks depending upon your competition. As owners of a pool basketball system, we recommend getting a repair net as you will go through the first one pretty quickly.
